This trail was quite easy and we couldn't hike for as long as we wanted because our child didn't feel well, but it was relatively flat and had a gravel path for hiking. They mowed both sides of the path as well. We walked to the "cabin" which was a really cool educational opportunity. It was built in 1917 and had chairs and a table in it. My 10 year old was fascinated by how they got water, how they washed clothes, and even the farm equipment located behind the cabin. It was neat. We also loved seeing so many horses on the trail. Overall, although it was easy, it was enjoyable. There is no shade, so I suggest in the summer to make sure you have plenty of sunscreen.

Great 4 mile loop, very pretty in the early morning or evening, also less crowded. The Eden valley trai is another really lovely hike, in and out 3.5 miles.

Several different trails diverge at Bobcat Ridge, where Valley Loop Trail is located. Be sure to notice signs, or don't, depending how you like it. I started on Valley loop and eventually wandered onto Power Line Trail.

The east and west views are pretty. The trail is easy for its length. I rated it a three because there is just so much grassland.

Lots of mountain bikers, and some horses. Go early as there isn't much shade.

I want to reiterate that there are no dogs allowed on this trail. There were multiple signs and rangers patrolling this area so I wouldn't attempt it! It's very unfortunate because the views here are beautiful. But for a personal who likes to hike with my dog, I won't be gong back anytime soon.

Nice open trail, not much tree coverage but great breeze. Ran counterclockwise & managed to be going the opposite way of all the bikes so,that's probably safest...watch out for the manure all over the trail!
