Starts at the Vistor Center where you see a reconstruction of the soldiers' cabins and watch a 15 minute video on the history of the Park. This trail can connect with several other trails. Goes to the Grand Parade Ground and past some remains of solider huts plus some reconstructions. Well maintained trail, easy and non-technical. Lots of ups and downs on the undulating hills.

Trail gets you up and down while walking through shaded areas. Despite yesterday's rain showers there was barely any muddy spot.

STILL HAS AN ERROR in the TRAIL NAME as shown ON THE MAP itself in the upper right corner when viewing the ALLTRAILS layer.

To see how the trail should be labeled, look at the SATELLITE layer, which is correct.

Specifically, if you look at the map in ALLTRAILS layer view, the trail is INCORRECTLY labeled as
"GRAND PARADE TRAIL".

If you look at the SATELLITE layer view, the trail is CORRECTLY labeled as
"GRAND LOOP TRAIL"

as you can see by looking at the annotated map in the photo I uploaded here:
http://www.alltrails.com/api/alltrails/photos/13642989/image?size=extra_large&api_key=3p0t5s6b5g4g0e8k3c1j3w7y5c3m4t8i

The "GRAND PARADE TRAIL" is a completely different trail than the
"GRAND LOOP TRAIL". And it is different than the GRAND PARADE RD and the GRAND PARADE FIELD.

The picture uploaded per link above explains everything.

The trails at JH are amazing. Perfect proximity to shopping, freeways, parking, it also has a great overlook loop with some historical buildings. Wide and graveled mostly, easy to walk with a group or the family. Enjoy it! Wish they let mountain biking in JH, at least designated paths maybe.

Beautiful scenery, great history and information, and a nice easy enjoyable hike. It's a good way to do 5 to 10 miles depending on which trails you take and how many you do in a day, but it's not a very difficult hike if that's what you're looking for.

We hiked the Grand Loop, which ended up being a slightly different track from this one. It is very well marked with maps and signs at the trail intersections. It was a hot day but most of the trail has decent shade. The Grand Loop has a couple climbs on it. The trail is fairly wide and was not crowded at all. We heard the occasional plane overhead and a car or two when near roads but otherwise it was very quiet. The NPS has a nice map of the trails. https://www.nps.gov/morr/upload/Jockey-Hollow-Trail-Map-Oct-2014-website.pdf
