This is a great little trail. The climb in elevation isn't to bad, and the view is most certainly worth it. Watch out for little frogs on the path and decent sized rattle snakes. I almost stepped on one, I wasn't watching the path and watching birds instead. Beautiful trail!!!

Lovely trail, but nearly stepped on a baby rattlesnake, so keep your eyes out.
Thought it would have been too cold for them, but someone else had seen one too so they're around, please be careful.

Great for kids, I've hiked this several times with my kids (two girls ages 3 and 4). Mule Deer are regularly resting in the shade and after a good rain you can hear frogs croaking in Dry Pond. Beware of rattlesnakes! We encountered the first Southern Pacific Rattlesnake of the season on Mule Deer Trail yesterday (2/1/17). They like to hide in the cacti next to the trail, so keep your eyes peeled.

Nice trails for local residents. Not challenging for serious hikers. Keeps me in shape during the week. Used to see deer but they are rare now.

It was a easy walk. Not really a hike. Had some hills to make it more or an exercise.

Upon entering Mule Deer Trail we saw about 7 or 8 deer come out of the woods onto the prairie to graze. There were at least two baby deer. Very cool. Plenty rattlesnake noises along the trail. Spiders and beetles. Woodpeckers and Hawks.
