came out with the kids. There wasn't much to see. Turns out there was a fire on July 2nd so we turned back around. Hung out at the nature center for a bit. we'll be back next year

would have been a great hike, aside from the fact the whole trail system was scorched. so heads up if you go now, you will feel more like you smoked, then hiked. will try again in the fall

Haven’t been hiking since the Corps. Saw a snake and booked it. Wasn’t sure if it was a rattler or not because I bounced once it hissed at me. The last quarter mile or so is confusing and the trail kinda disappears so I had to go through dead weeds and god stickers all over so that was annoying

Nice hike after work. Saw several rabbits. Weather was pleasant, but won’t be tolerable in the next few weeks.

I enjoyed this trail so many different options to follow, as well as a hidden oasis. We went during super bloom, very pretty. I would think during the summer months this would be very hot as there is no shade. I would do it again but only in the cooler months.

A decent hills hike with great views after ascent. Stuck to the wide trails to avoid rattlers. Still saw two. One gave a welcome rattle from the brush. Another baby rattler chilling directly in the path. Stay aware or save this one for fall/winter.

This trail is next to my apartment complex and so much fun! There’s a ton of trails and in the early spring it was absolutely beautiful with all of the wildflowers blooming. There isn’t much shade but the huge hills are a great workout. I’m worried about going now that it’s warmer because of snakes though.

I love hiking and this place is beautiful but, within the first 20 minutes I saw two massive rattlesnakes and the trails are tiny and don’t give you enough to run out in case you have to give them space.... p.s. I hate snakes!!!!

Green and flowers in the early Spring. Will need to open map frequently to follow this specific trail, many branches. Saw 2 snakes today 1 was a rattlesnake that rattled at me. West side of this loop is less often traveled and is partially overgrown. Would recommend sticking to east side of trail. Little shade, go on a partially cloudy day or early morning

A great medium difficulty trail close to home. Everything was blooming, plenty of bugs, lizards, etc. They need trail signs at every trail intersection. Too many criss-crossing trails.

Good hike with lots of small hills. Moderate level without getting too much elevation. There are a lot of small trails throughout so keep record or you’ll easily get lost.

Definitely feel this is more geared towards biking but it’s a nice little hike in the early morning to get the day started ! Some steep inclines and a little waterfall too.
