Great trails but very poorly marked. Needs more signage. And maintenance of the trails could be improved

What is good about this trail is all the secondary trails. Just when you thought you have been on all the trails, you find a new one. September through March is the best time to go on these trails when there are not bugs or weeds on the secondary trails.

Very nice trail with moderate inclines. Well kept. Just wish the one spot they made to see the lake was cleared out so you can actually see the lake.

It has a cliff where you can get the best view of Lake Jacomo, but there's so many teens that will ruin your time.

This trail is perfect for family hiking .. my daughters are 9 and 13 and really enjoyed it. There are a couple of areas to sit and enjoy nature!
