I took my 4 and 7 year old children on this trail. Apparently we went the wrong way. It was very challenging and a step hill. My kids were troopers. We turned back after a mile. So we did 2 miles total. There is no shade so it was a bit hot. We will try again a different way.

Good workout trail, gets steep on some parts. Nice view to the canyons.

I went yesterday when it was pretty hot out. No shade, so bring plenty of water. I went off course a little, but quickly got back on track. It was definitely an easy hike/run for me. The incline and loose rocks were a little challenging, but I managed to not fall. No others on the trail, so it made it peaceful, but a little scary too since I was solo! I’d definitely do this trail again. View of Ramona was beautiful.

Short stroll with nice views- not a big deal though.

Not the best idea going up the hill on a hot day! Beautiful views though once your up. All in all nice hike

This trail is a must for runners and mountain bikers. It starts off fairly slow but as you progress up the hills of the trail it becomes more and more difficult. At the peak of the preserve is a beautiful view of the town of Ramona and many fields.
