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.

Great place to walk with the dogs, just a short drive from home. Not heavily trafficked, but does pass through a playground so lots of kids running around at times. The fire damage in my opinion makes it an interesting and almost "creepy" atmosphere. It is growing back nicely now though!

GREAT place during heavy snow because trail is empty & you can cross-country ski.

One of our go-to places with the pups.

came here cuz it looked like rain didn't want to go to far. did a couple loops but didn't track it . nice little park. I guess some people fail to see any beauty and power in mother nature's devastation but I do. It's coming back nicely

Worst Trail Run Ever! Do not go here. I downloaded the GPX file from here and loaded it onto my Garmin Fenix 3. It was nearly impossible to find the trail using the pocket earth app and my watch. I had to back track several times just take a look at the GPX file I uploaded. The fire damage has resulted in large erosion from the subsequent heavy rains, making the trails extremely damaged. Also, the trails haven't been used very much so there's little plants and weeds growing in the middle of the trails that haven't been washed out, making it even harder to find the trails. I don't know what drug the other reviewers were on to make them see flowers because I didn't see one single flower. There is no tree cover once you get 200 yards from the parking lot because of the fire damage. It looks like a barren wasteland. Don't waste your time. I would give it zero stars if I could.

Great half day hike, easy to moderate terrain, beautiful wildflowers throughout the hike. Completed 3.6 miles within an hour and a half (time includes breaks).
