Nice mix of urban (near roads and housing tracts) and wilderness. I only went about half way, from Quail Hill to Turtle Rock community center, and back. Nice, pretty easy hike. I would go back with my dogs, on leash, of course!

Great easy trail out and back for a quick walk or a longer excursion. Nice views!

I was expecting more of a hike. This is just a walk on a dirt road next to a street with lots of cars. If you want to pretend like you're in nature, but never actually step more than 20 feet out of a neighborhood, then this is the place for you. If a kid on a tricycle can ride up the path, it's not a hike.
