Great hike. Nice elevation changes.
Good loop - but too short. I would recommend doing it at least twice around. I like that so much is shaded.
This is just one of many loops that can be done at this very nice park. Trails are very well maintained and everyone can design combinations to suit what they wish to do....paved, natural, or rocky. We particularly liked Red Oak, northern section of Hillview, and Shady Creek, although we would utilize all of the trails here.
The first time we tried Eisenhower Park, we didn't like it as much. We had selected the paved trails instead and didn't find it much of a challenge. The second time we chose Hillview/Ref Oak trails and found it to be an easy to moderate hike about 3 miles total from start to finish. Much better experience and would very likely return again.
