As of May 28th 2020 this park is opened! It is 50% capacity and monitored regularly by the Sheriff! It’s a great rip putting all the hard work in the first legs of the trail only to be able to rip and enjoy your workout for the last leg!

Geese and deer. Pretty water features. Large part of trail is along fencing.

You are in a park that has trails. The yellow borders the park. So your view is a gate with “no trespassing” on it. The views are of corporate office buildings, apartment complexes and of private homes. Not recommended for the trail hikers, perfect for beginners venturing out of concrete parks.

Easy trail overall, just some steep spots to walk down. Lots of deer to see along the trail

Nice quiet loop trail with nice views. Today I had really good conditions...it’s a little bit muddy but not much the deer are around but it was a beautiful morning. Thanksgiving week started around 40° went up to about 55. It’s not a very difficult trail if you’re in any kind of condition there is a slight incline on the southside I guess depends on which way you’re going but I went. counter clockwise

Took yellow trail. Not well marked. Nobody mentioned tthe yellow trail walks side by side with a barb wire chain link fence that surrounds the water reservoir. Deer were EVERYWHERE. Chipmunks and squirrels scampering around. Nice long elevation along the way, but again hiking side by side with a GIANT black iron fence. Of course, to prevent falling off the cliff face. I'd prefer to walk in nature without boundaries. Benches available for a break or to look at the view through the GIANT iron fence. Overall, I'd hike it again.

slippery in the leaves (today is 11.03.19), but overall an easy nice hike. wear stable shoes. but definitely can be a family thing.

Fairly easy on yellow, then onto red back to yellow. Some parts of yellow you have to really look for blazes. Lower part of yellow gets to be a little moderate in difficulty. Cut through area that had a part not blazed but yellow in sight. Nice day for a walk. Only one deer this time.

ok if you're local, otherwise I wouldn't go outta my way for this one. gates & fences everywhere and 90% of the time you can't escape the city noise. easy to moderate.

Lovely easy-moderate more easy than moderate trail close to civilization. Kids and dogs will have no problems. Waterfall is always good to see but it is small and you cannot get close to the lake which is a bummer.

Great hike, very easy, decent views on one side. We saw about 20 deers and some turkeys. Entire 3.3 miles took about 1 1/2 hr. We took our time.
