Great for beginners! This is my very first hike since moving back to California. This was a good starting point and it offers great views and shows you all the options you have once you are ready.

Decent. Not too long that you can’t take kids. Fairly small and a light walk

This is a great hiking trail around the Visitor Center. Don't forget to check out the Grinding Rocks trail off this trail - beautiful layers of rocks along a stream of water. Easy hike & fun!

Nice for a easy walk/hike. Added the Oak Grove Loop to add a little more distance.

Cute little trail with squirrels, bunnies, and lots of lizards. Even though there weren't any spots with steep inclines, it was still a decent workout. There are many connecting trails if you want to extend your hike.
Dog poop every 10 feet or so :-/

Great, easy walk for beginners. Nice to slow things down a little. There is a steepish hill though so plan accordingly.
