This trail winds up and down a hillside, partially through a wealthy neighborhood. On over half the hike the highway is visible, which was a bummer. There is a fairly short section with shade, but mostly you hike alongside shrubs and wildflowers. We saw a snake, two deer and heard many critters rustling in the bushes. My puppy loved the dog beach at the stream. We were all happy that the dogs we encountered were on leashes. The restroom and drinking fountain at the trailhead were nice.
