I never found the trail. There are no signs on where the trail starts.

Although I think the trail should be rated as being easy, it was enjoyable and empty. Nice for a quiet, easy hike.

HikingClosedGreat!Over grownScramble

NOTE: 8/28/20 - There is construction going on so the trail was closed at the very end, which would’ve been disastrous for us if the construction people hadn’t let us through. If we’d known, we wouldn’t have gone on this trail when we did. That said, it was a very nice trail and we enjoyed our hike until the last .5 mile It turned out to be shadier than we thought, which helped on the really hot day we went out there. We started around 8:30am from the nature center and we got back around 12:30, with several stops along the way. Sections were indeed overgrown and there was a lot of horse poop, but it is a horse trail, after all. We liked the variety of terrain, including the neighborhood sections that give you a glimpse into how the horsey people live. Some parts of the trail do get quite steep and rocky so it’s probably prudent to wear hiking boots. No restrooms along the way, either, FYI—just a porta potty at the nature center. We went on a Friday morning and we ran into just a few people, which was great. We’d definitely do it again, after the construction is done.

This trail can be quite confusing, with a combination of dirt trail and hiking through neighborhoods on paved roads. There’s a bunch of different options other than what this map specifies. Wear appropriate hiking boots too as it’s rocky and slippery in places.

Running

This is a terrible running route and should be called Rolling Hills Horse Poop. The first mile had me fooled because it’s gorgeous with a nice soft trail and lots of shade. At mile 1.5 you realize this route is totally Frankensteined together with some trail, lots of road, private property, and a lot of narrow horse poop littered trail. Literally the entire last half mile is 6” deep horse shit because you’re running along a stable fence line and the people who live there are just dumping horse poop over the fence. It was a pain in the ass to navigate. If you’re trying to maintain any kind of pace, just run on the roads the whole time. This trail took me 30% longer to run just to figure out where I was supposed to be going. I commend whoever recorded this for cobbling together a route out of what was available, but these trails are better left for horses than runners.

overgrown in parts close to the george f. canyon but manageable. to use the martingale trail you need a permit now. in other words, trepassing if no permit
