The trail winds through beautiful forest and is filled with interpretive signs about the environment you are walking through and the flora and fauna you may see along the way.

Not a lot to see but still a great hike. Some steep parts but definitely an easy hike. Great way to get some outdoor exercise without having to travel far.

We love this hike! We did the longer Park Loop trail then went up the Summit trail before going back out. Found small pods of deer (twice). This is a great place to take kids (4+) for a harder hike for them. Lots of bugs and things to find too!

It was steeper than I anticipated for being labeled as easy. The trail was muddy but it was a nice getaway and not difficult to get to.

HikingGreat!

I am dumbfounded . I just got back from the trails and I only saw a handful of people wearing masks. I must have missed the vaccine bcuz based on what I witnessed the pandemic must be over. In short: don’t forget your masks on these narrow trails.

Nice city park that gives a "forest bathing" feel being heavily wooded, various grasslands and dense brush. Great place to forage for mushrooms and bird watch (recommend binoculars). Not heavily traveled at all for a weekend with easy to follow paths that intertwine. Bathrooms and picnic table are closed. No fee to park.

HikingGreat!

Had a wonderful hike literally covering 95% of the trails. Did all 5 trails. Plenty of small birds, Song Sparrows, Juncos, Chickadees, robins, and stellar jays. Loved the mushrooms and relaxing well maintained trails. Also grabbed 4 geocaches while hiking. Perfect getaway in the middle of the city and not too many people

The trail was fun and not super easy but not super hard either. The people I encountered on the trail were not friendly at all, and the trail signs were very confusing, not really pointing in the correct direction. Had to check my phone for guidance multiple times.

Very nice shaded hike. But when I got back to the Sunnyside trailhead found my car window smashed in. Glove box was open but nothing stolen, I don’t leave anything of value in my car ever.

A nice stroll with old friends. Virtually no one else in the park in the evening. We walked to the summit and back down from the Cedar Park Trailhead.

Awesome trail! I have two 11yr old who hiked the entire trail with me. It’s beautiful and there is plenty of sun and shade. It’s well traveled but easily able to social distance.

beautiful! easy walk, yet steep in some places. However, it's manageable; saw a lot of kids and my teenagers were fine.

This trail was great! got the kids out of the house, saw some deer, the trail was nice it had lots of forks and I forgot to record the trail! I for sure want to do that next time. we went around noon and it was pretty crowded. And people had dogs on the trail... which I dont mind but it says NO DOGS. I will be back soon!
