Everything was green and beautiful due to all the rain we got this year! So many wild flowers and saw some deer! Bring lots of water on a hot day. Steep inclines.
Beautiful this time of the year. Moderate for sure. Nice for dogs on leash. No bikes. Sometimes a horse but not often. Generally a very friendly crowd seems to frequent this trail..
This is really more of an easy hike; wide paths, not much elevation gain, pretty heavy traffic including dogs and bikes. The views are ok but the landscape isn't as interesting as it is at a lot of the other open air preserves around, you're mainly seeing gently rolling hills with neighborhoods clustered around them to one side and forested hills with a muddy reservoir at their base to the other. It's not worth the hike down to the historic mine site so save yourself the time.
Good 2 hourish long trail. Bring water and definitely take a seat to overlook and relax by the reservoir!
Pretty rolling hills; mercury mine was underwhelming; moderate workout: easy to tack on additional short trails; access through a neighborhood.
