Very easy, good for family/kids. There’s nice views of the mountains and just an all around beautiful place. Planning on returning in the spring.

This is a great place just to be outdoors. I always see some type of animal. Coyotes, deer, tarantulas, etc. No part of this place is difficult and I don't even really consider it a hike but the views are great and the visitor center is nice to visit.

Fun quick hike with a couple friends. The weather was cloudy and perfect.

Great trail, fees at entrance for use. We went during the summer so most of the water was dried up, we were bummed about that but still pretty.

There are so many trails to choose from! Today my friend and I did a three-mile hike from the visitor center down Waterline Road to Tenaja Truck Trail, then across Clinton Keith Road to Sylvan Meadows and back to the visitor center via Old Cattle Trail and Tovashal Trail. Took us about 1.5 hours but we didn't push it too hard -- just enjoyed the scenery :)

if you like rolling hills, then this is a good hike for you. I generally like to go where there is a body of water. it was easy though and was nice getting out in the fresh air!
