Took my kid out in his new hiking carrier. I 100% fully expected the mud and even enjoy it but most trails in Settlers Cabin are muddy throughout the year from all the springs, cricks and valleys of the park. But still very good for hiking and trail running. I recommend it if you're looking for a guick hike with the little ones and a decent workout.

Good trail, was visiting family for Christmas, live in the LA area. Came out for a trail run early in the morning on a weekend. No people, had the parking lot and trail all to myself. Was very very muddy, with low-lying areas being very saturated. Isn’t super well marked, but trail system overall is easy to follow and memorize.

The trail was so muddy and had been ridden through by pedal bikers. Total beat up the ground. My kids were covered in mud and the bugs were ridiculous due to the dampness and humidity

Another good walking/jogging trail in this park. This one also joins up with several other trails and can be a bit confusing because the blazes are a strange. Really no way to get truly lost or be forced to walk any longer than you originally set out to do.

Trail seems to be part of another loop trail or something. Relaxing hike not much for views.
