Good trail, if only that wildfire hadn’t gone through, about a whole mile is in the sun, with views of some burnt trees. The rest is in the shade and beutiful. Conveniently, there is a park about 3/4 of the way through to fill up your water and rest. Good for family. Recommend the area to families with toddlers.

We had hiked the Black Forest Regional Park before the fires four years ago. Then I'd agree on a 4-5 star rating. It was a lush and beautiful park. Now is a bit of a wasteland. If you aren't after scenery, it is a nice easy hike, great with kids and dogs but it certainly isn't very visually appealing. It seems a little like hiking through Mordor. I just didn't want anyone to be disappointed by the high ratings. I'd imagine most were give before the 2013 fires.

This easy trail has nice areas shaded with Pine trees and also has sun drenched areas due to the wild fire that moved through the area a few years ago. Trail 360 on YouTube

The trail shown outlined in red is no longer easily accessible about the halfway point. Looks like local homeowners are blocking access with logs.

Unfortunately, due to the fire, a bunch of it is burned out. But things are starting to grow back. It will be much prettier again in the next couple years. Maybe come when it snows.

Nice area for easy hiking that's away from other more crowded trails. Some fun geocaches in there too.

Sad to see so many burnt trees, but it still has a unique beauty. Hopefully it rejuvenates.

Good trail. Sad to see the burnt forest, but don't let that discourage you.
