Took my 7 and 4 year olds for a sunset hike while visiting Grandma. Only 5 minutes from home. Not sure which trail is the actual east mountain trail but we walked on A trail. Saw numerous signs with arrows pointing different ways. Since I didn't know the way and the trail is pretty close to town, I just let the boys take turns picking which path we'd follow. That worked great and the boys liked it. We followed trails labeled Upper Crest, Connection, Graveyard, and Bamberger. Again, not sure which trail we were supposed to follow but I wasn't too worried about getting lost. After a bit, I started strategically picking which way to go at the forks and we ended up back at the parking lot. Clocked 1.6 miles. The trail is pretty level in most places, couple of short steep sections. Some exposed areas and some really heavy overgrowth "tunnels" that the boys liked. Overall, pretty good. We'll go back and try different directions or maybe find the real path.

I agree that it's a "great little Little trail" but I disagree about it being marked. I had to retrace my steps several times to get back on the trail. Thank goodness I could follow my steps on the map.

Nice little area, the trails are intertwined but for the most part they were marked. (Green circle/black diamond etc.) We would have hiked around a little more but due to getting out so late (after 10am already almost 90 degrees) and a leaky water bottle, we had to cut the hike short. There is an orienteering course for those who would like to practice using a compass. And a few geocaches in the area, though we didn't search for them at this time. We will definitely give this little trail another go in the future. (Hiked with lots of kids from age three to teenagers, grandma and a dog.) The kids really enjoyed it.

Fabulous easy hike for kids. About 2 miles, mainly flat. Beautiful.

I enjoyed this little trail for more of an evening stroll than a hike! Watch out for snakes! Almost stepped on what looked like a rattler resting under a rocky patch of the trail! There were a couple different paths with difficulty levels marked. I would like to go back earlier in the morning to explore some more again on a different path but it was a little disconcerting hearing the gun shots from the rifle range!
