Fun, easy trail. We brought the whole family. We went after a few weeks of rain so Part of the trail leading to the Adobes were very muddy and slippery. Difficult for some of the kids. But a great hike none the less.

It's a lovely walk or run to the pool.
Gentle for seniors and romantic for couples
