Getting There

This beautiful trail was not in the path of the Black Forest wildfire and is a great alternative for those who enjoyed Black Forest Regional Park. The trail is easy and rolling. Excellent for strollers with larger wheels, but some of the hills can get steep so be prepared for a workout if you're pushing!

Plentiful parking. Can get a little crowded on weekends. Restrooms are clean and plentiful.

Great, long hike with several large elevation changes. Nothing our 4 and 7 year old couldn’t handle, but enough to get your heart pumping! Nice little stroll by the lakes or a park to stop and play at a little over half way. Lots of people out but the trail is plenty wide to “social distance” and there wasn’t ever anyone right ahead of or behind us for more than a minute. We lost the trail once or twice, the downloaded app was helpful!

This was a great trail for our group of 10 people ranging from 10 yrs old to 61 (all levels) and 3 dogs. Only disappointment was no pond. The picture makes it appear we will loop around a pond, but no sign of water. I would still do this hike again.

Great family trail. A nice shaded trail where I didn’t have to apply sunscreen.

Not as many hikers as I thought there would be, especially with social distancing. Trails are in great condition.

Lots of icee snow on the trails. Still beautiful. Grateful for All Trails because sometimes the snow made it hard to recognize the trail.

It’s a fine trail and ideal if you live close for a place of quiet and a good workout. Also, plenty of shade and beautiful trees. That being said it was a pretty boring trail without much elevation change and is missing interesting markers. Also, they don’t mark this trail very well and without All Trails I would have taken a wrong turn a couple of times. Please note that I didn’t take the trail that went to the lake.

Easy enough for my 7, 4, and 2 year olds to hike. Lots of washout and erosion on the trail and a few short steep sections. I would not recommend attempting with a stroller.

basic regional park trail. Lots of side trails, twists & turns. very easy to walk around in circles if you stray off the main wide path. good for walking a dog, beginner mountain bikes and family stroll. Only 2 stars because you do hear a fair amount of traffic and the trails are not well marked if you deviate from big path.

Favorite local park/trail for a quick run or easy family walk. Can get busy but lots of little trails to explore. A local gem!

It’s a pretty good trail but here’s a few things about it: 1) it’s sorta boring because it’s like the same thing all around the trail 2) there are many other trails in this area so u will need ur map or directions to get around 3) it’s really easy, it’s just a flat trail 4) this trail is great all year around unless it snowed a lot recently 1

My dog and I enjoyed this trail very much. Shady, wide path, with rolling hills. As other reviewers mentioned, the trail is not well marked. I had to open the app and check my location at several intersections.

Very pretty and very easy-going trail through the beautiful Ponderosa Pine trees of Black Forest. My first time, Ella and I did the basic Fallen Timber's, but there are many alternative routes. Water and restroom at the halfway points of two starting parking areas.

Great trail if your looking for something easy. We chose this trail because it seemed like it would be a good one to do with small kids (and it was). Not much activity on the trail even for a Saturday morning. Lots of shade and very quiet. As has been mentioned in several comments there were hardly any sign markers and lots of little trails you could get lost on, but the gps feature on this app allows you to see where the main trail is and where you are on it so it really wasn't an issue. My biggest complaint was that there was a LOT of horse poop on the trail. We spent much of our time navigating our kids around it:/. Other than that it was a great little hike!

Well maintained trails and great for families. The ponderosa pines smell amazing and there are plenty of geocaches to find.
