Road bikingGreat!

Watch your speed on bike, lots of critters crossing the trail. I saw a baby snake, a baby turtle, lots of grasshoppers, squirrels... Loop itself doesn’t take long so might need to do a few laps to get enough exercise on bike. Nice variety of environments through the trail (forest, high grass, etc)

It was good. There was construction a part of the way but it was still beautiful.

Maybe I am biased since I live very close by and do this trail often. I like this trail a lot, goes next to one of the biggest off-leash,fenced dog walks. Good thing I like about this trail is that you can do the longer loop or the shorter loop depending on your mood! Has views and access to the creek

First to Review

Half gorgeous, half blah. I did the short loop due to bad knees. It was nice and flat. I headed west out of parking lot by 35W, boring next to freeway and by townhomes, but it’s a brown time of year. Pleasant surprise second half of trail!!
