Overall a very nice set of trails. You never quite get away from road noise (part of the trail is next to a road) but that’s to be expected so close to downtown Concord.

great trails. it is rocky and alot of roots like others said, but not bad if you watch your footing. if you start on the red trail you get to see some stick teepees and there is a cool treehouse you can check out. my only issue was you can still hear the traffic noise from the highway, but there's nothing anyone can do about that. all in all an excellent hike

Flat easy trail that is great for running! Ironically... I ran into a family of Turkeys along the trail... Mama and half a dozen jakes behind her.

A nice easy hike in and out. Very well marked with color codes for each trail. Some of the trails are on private property. Overall a nice quiet easy hike.

As beginner friendly of a trail as one could ask for. Well maintained and well kept. Would be good for kids or those looking for something easy. Very flat. Do not bring your pup for this one.

Quick walk with my dog during LAX practice, just looped back around by way of the docks at St. Paul's followed the dirt road till it came back out by the turf field. then followed the paved unused road back to the car parking near silk farm road.

Very well marked and easy hike. National Audubon Society is right there with educational birds of prey, so nice way to finish off the hike with the kids.
