I go here all the time since it's so close to my house. Obviously much greener in the spring but still a good workout even though it's yellow this time of year.

I had alot of fun on this trail, till my tire decided to not hold air. The waterfall is still flowing, as of July 8 2017. The creek isnt flowing very well though.

I came here to mountian bike and the trailheads say no bikes, but theres a gravel road you can ride on. After a mile of that I said screw it and went on the trail. The trail is alot of fun amd good workout going in, coming back is all down hill and a good combo of technical and flow! The problem is that when you are coming back you can be coming around a bend and run into hikers, hence the no mountian biking signs. I went early morning so luckily there was no one there and that didn't happen to me.

Again awesome trail and I will definitely be back!

This is a Moderate/ easy trail it's up hill the first mile then it becomes flat. We only went about 2.5 miles up and had to turn around because the foxtails was bothering our dog

I love this place. We came in April and it was so green, definitely different now. It's a beautiful place to hike. We only have been on the Wildflower Trail and Tule Elk Trail. Just a heads up, for dog lovers- our dog had a little difficulty due to foxtails getting in her paws so we had to cut our hike short, still got in 4 miles. There were other dogs that didn't seem to have issues but this terrain is different for her so it may take getting used to. The views are spectacular and there were many people out today. A great place for families, couples, solo hikers and we even saw a wedding proposal today! Definitely recommend hiking here.

Absolutely stunning in winter/early spring after the rains turn everything green. Trail congestion clears up a couple miles in. Have yet to see water in Reflection Pond, but the view is great!

The best time to visit is spring. Little to no shade trees on trail and gravel road so bring plenty of water in the hotter months. The views are great especially when the wild flowers are blooming. This is an out and back for gravel and mtn bikes the climb is worth the back!

I'm out of shape so we only hiked 2 miles this time. I want to come back soon to do the entire 7 miles. Easy enough for kids. Lots of foxtails this time of year if you leave the trail
