This park is so beautiful!! There are a couple of other longer and more scenic trails here..but this is a nice short family friendly trail that still offers some great views. Recommended.

$8 fee for entering the park. They limited the number of cars into the park, so we had about a 20 minute wait on a 70 degree day with sun in February. This is an easy trail without a lot of views compared to the Fountain Valley Loop Trail within this same park. The trail was very muddy and some areas had ice. It does overlap with another trail but cuts across at one point. Dogs are not allowed on this trail.

Some ice and snow, traction helps. Not hard, some downhill and some uphill. Did this on a Saturday morning, not very crowded. Connected this to fountain valley loop, a great morning walk/hike to get out of the house!

Came back to the park after lunch and did this nice, quaint loop. Cool views with the snow and the sun going down. Wish the park was open later for sunset.

Trail is decent. Some rocks but otherwise pretty good walking conditions. A little bit of shade which was welcome. There’s some good views. Would be good for out of towners.

Easy loop hike. Beautiful views of red rocks through the valley. We went early in the morning. Only ones in the park. Incredibly still and peaceful. If your just looking for an easy 1.5 mile walk, this is a great one.

This was a fun little hike to do with kids. It was overcast, so our pictures weren't what we expected, but we did have fun!

I love this little trail. It's short and easy, but has a beautiful array of wild flowers and has a bench to sit near the creek in a really peaceful area.

This trail was short and sweet. The trail was a little narrow, not as suitable for groups.

Really pretty park! This trail was super easy and not crowded. Perfect for us with our energetic 3 year old! I loved how the trees hung over the trail ... made it very peaceful.

Less foot traffic than Fountain Valley and a little more shaded. Just hilly so not strenuous. Enough for a good, quick workout. Nice views.

Pretty, short, clean trail. Good for kids. 4 yo and almost 3yo walked the entire way.

Short and easy but a fun stroll through the scrub oak. It's almost tunnel like for half the trip.

Hiked on sunny Memorial Day and even with crowds the trail was pleasant with stretches of only our party. Easy for meandering kids, without bicycle traffic.
