*Sylvan Trail and Bayview Glen Trail will be CLOSED February 18 - March 1, 2020 per signs up this weekend* When open - this is a well maintained, mostly shaded trail that offers a quick respite in the outdoors near a residential area. Took about an hour but can vary depending on pace and time spent admiring the scenery. Visited late afternoon and saw a herd of deer calmly grazing in the field and a few rabbits who quickly ran off when they saw people approach.

Really nice, well-kept, interesting trail that's short but still has some nice views. We saw 12 deer near (and sometimes on) the trail so be careful.

Nice easy suburban trail. Partial shade, partially exposed. Totally manageable for our 7yo, and fine for 4yo in chunks (carried her for some of the up). Saw a deer, lots of lizards, some birds. Fine but not particularly memorable. Enjoyed short stop at the small nature center for the kids afterward (where highlight for my 7yo was the nature slideshows on the computer).

The switchbacks are a challenge, but love the decent.

Uphill at the beginning, lots of choices on which trails to take half way through. Nice and shaded

We sis this hike as a family with a 4 and 7 year old. The trails were very well marked and had lots to see. Definitely recommend and will come back.
