This is my neighborhood trail as I live nearby. We do this trail often, as an out and back and also as a workout hike up to the water tower and down around Gabbert Loop. The loop from our house and back is a good hour and a half.

I often jog this trail to keep my heart rate up. Most if it is pretty easy, except the section up to the water tower from what I call the cross roads. You can get a good work out on that climb. Most of the trail is well groomed and wide. The loop is more if a "single track," that is, a bit narrower.

The trail is quite pretty and diverse in its flora. The forest changes through out the year with the changing season, keeping the hike interesting year round. It's especially beautiful after a snowfall.

I am fortunate to have this trail literally in my back yard.

Mom and I hiked every trail here. Earlier the same day I hiked Gabbert Butte to the south. The two trails connect at the water tower. A small loop is possible at the top. A trail splits off to tour the abandoned bus. The unmarked trails are a bit overgrown. It would be great if a wider loop hike could be made. As it is now there are essentially four out-and-backs from a central point where there is signage. For a longer hike, continue south around Gabbert Loop.

I pretty much had the trail to myself on a Saturday. Rust was nice. However not the most scenic of trails.

We walked up Walter's road and hiked to the old abandoned bus. As a sick joke someone wrapped up some old boots, plastic jugs and bubble wrap in a sheet to look like a dead body and placed it inside the bus. Good workout walking up Walters Rd and even better up the hill to the water tower and bus.

Lindsay -- you were on the wrong trail . Quite scenic, can make the heart beat faster going up to the water tower and bus.

Was a nice hike until my daughter was accosted by a scruffy looking individual after running ahead of me. I would recommend anyone who walks this trail bring a big can of mace. Scary

This trail is a great gem within the city. It has nice inclines and hills which make it great to get your blood going. I only went in for a mile (2 miles round trip) an was able to log almost 40 flights of stairs! This is very accessible for families. Great trail.
