This is OK place for tourists but I don't see this as a place to for hiking. There are several hiking trails right here in No San Diego County that are much better. Most of the people were there for picnic lunches and general sight seeing. Won't be back

As trails go, it's a standard creek walk for the area, so if you really want to have an experience here you want to allow for exploring the Carrillo ranch that is maintained nearby. Huell Howser even made an episode there, so you know it's a cool place to visit.

Very pleasant. Be sure to check out the historic buildings while you are there.

Not very impressed with this trail. Just not much to look at. It is, however, pretty good for beginners because it is mostly flat and you can make it longer if you want. It has two loop trails (East and West), each about 2 miles. I did both today, totaling about 4 miles. The trails are not well marked and the West trail just comes to an end in a residential area. I had to just walk around trying to figure out how to get back to Leo Carillo Ranch, where I parked.

I do not recommend the trail, but the ranch is a pretty cool place and worth a look. Lots of history there!

This place is nestled away in a great area. Beautiful and green, with the added bonus of a peacock park in the middle of it for an extra loop. Very easy walk. Would be great to trail run or bike on. Minimal foot traffic on a Saturday late morning/early afternoon.

Nice little walk, it says here 1.0 miles, but you can take it around the park and the sign reads 2.0 miles. There's other trails that connect and go different ways also.
