A simple and easy trail without shade. The dry grass on the sides are not bad. Just go there for a hike after your dinner, it only takes 30-40 minutes.

Meh, not great scenery. No shade. Easy walk but doesn’t have much going for it.

Trail is open now, but one-way only, clockwise. Not terribly interesting, unless you like views ogf brush, the I-5, and the Irvine skyline, but nice enough to stretch your legs if you're in the area.

It was an amazing 45 min hike, we were lucky with the weather. I definitely recommend it for everyone specially for kids during spring time.

beautiful, though would not recommend after the rain, it’s too muddy. We did it anyway but a good attitude is a must to deal with slipping and muddy shoes. maybe fun for some? :)

Took the boys and had a great time! Loved running up and down the Hills around the Trail Loop! They both say "Sweet!"

Short easy trail, great for educational purposes. The audio information clips were cool, especially about the ferry shrimp. I’ll try it again in the spring when more things should be in bloom. Forgot to start the recording at the start of the trail.

Spent the Saturday morning on the trail with the family, everybody especially my wife loves it. The grass is green and the snow peak in the near distance is perfect for a family photo

Great easy trail that isn’t too long. Has one longer sloping incline but it should be manageable for most people. Great views of the mountains.
