Lovely trail. Extremely hot! There is one short I place near where there’s a lake, that you cannot see, where there is a little water covering the trail... it’s easy enough to walk around it now, but if there is significant rain, it may be more difficult.

This trail is ok, but it was a little grown over, and a portion isn’t shaded. I prefer the ‘yellow’ (Spring Grove) trail. Use the AllTrails map, because there are many trails here and it’s easy to get off track. AllTrails maps have saved me (and my poor sense of direction) on more than one occasion. :)

Old Spanish Way is officially reopened May 2020! Not loving the reopened trail so much because about 2 miles of it is no longer shaded due to clear cutting the pine trees due to pine beetle infestation. The rest of the trail which is shaded (part of Spring Grove trail) is nice though. Saw a few deer & some pretty wildflowers. They added some small benches along the way, but I wouldn’t sit down, due to deer flies! Still was nice to re-experience this trail after being closed for over two years!

Closed. Possibly for years ahead due to endangered species. Attempt to take from backside can add miles to another hike. People leaving reviews are illegally hiking this.

This is one of the nicer trails around town. Lots to see along the path.

Good slow walk. Does get pretty sandy in areas. Not always under cover, but that provides good change in scenery. Trails are very wide in some sections. Definitely hit the other side of sand felasco more often than this side

Probably great if you just want to walk for 3 hours.
