Nice wide trails for the most part with very nice footing underneath made up of dirt & decomposed granite. Quite a few mountain bikers are on these trails as are many people running & hiking them. There is some shade in places, but not like being in a forest so I suggest sunscreen, hat & water. Suitable for everyone. When you get to Elena Gallegos park, there are shelters, picnic areas & bathrooms. There's even a spot with 2 hitching posts & a picnic table. Since these trails cut across arroyos, be aware of changing weather conditions up on the mountain!
