we had a great day doing this hike. 90% of it is a woodchip path and you cross through the river at one point so be prepared to get your feet wet. decent views. not my favorite but I'd go again especially if I had the nephew's with me.

Views of the mountains are gorgeous, and it's easily accessible from a number of trailheads. For hiking, it was not particularly fun because the trails are sandy and not well marked. Expect to tread through the creek a few times!

Nice easy long (for me) trail. It’s a horse trail, so sand and graded with mulch most of the way. It’s clean and well maintained though. There is one water crossing with no bridge and a short but steep section about halfway through.

Great trail for running and training. There are several hills varying in incline through out the trail making a fun run with plenty of variation. The mountains look beautiful while your running. I recommend going early to avoid the sun. But there are alot of dogs and horses on the trail. The doggos are amazing but also expect Horse poop. it an honest gem tucked in the heart of Sandy

The nice thing about the trails in Dimple Dell is you can make your trail loop very easy, or challenging. There are flatter loops, and loops with big climbs. Well groomed wide trails. Watch out for horses.

The trail itself is very beautiful. There is frequent shade and plenty of foliage, the incline isn’t steep, and it wasn’t very crowded. It’s virtually all sand, and because it’s a horse trail there’s plenty of horse droppings in various stages of decomposition all over the trail, so we didn’t complete the whole trail because my 8-year-old son was too grossed out. There are several trails all parallel to each other at this site, and none of them are really marked so you either have to use GPS or make your best guess that you’re on the trail you actually wanted to be on. On the way back we somehow ended up on a narrow, fairly steep trail instead of on the gently incline we came down. I don’t think we’ll be doing this one again.

good beginners conditioning ride, a little bit of down hill, also good for beginners, fun ride along the stream and through it a couple times, which my 12 year old enjoyed.

I went a bit later in the evening around 8:00p during the week. Somewhat creepy only because it’s a secluded, quiet, brushy area and the sun was going down. The water crossings makes it a bit difficult to trail run. The trail consisted of wood chips, some sand, some rocks, some paved areas. Once you’re down into the park, there are no trail signs etc. I only ended up running for a little over a mile before I psyched myself out. Would be a nice trail during the day, shady.

From a mountain biking perspective, this trail was pretty poor. The trail down by the creek bed wasn't bad, but was un-rideable due to the constant water crossings. The trail up from the creek reeked of horse manure and was nothing but sand

its nice and relaxing for me and my 6 yr old son.and friends.it depends on your mood if you want a challenge or work out.either way your moving and losing some calories.you can go down by the dry river and hike up to the trails.

As a larger guy and a newb to hiking, I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. There's enough hills to get the heart pumping and equally enough flat spots so you don't feel the need to quit moving. There was a decent amount of droppings from horses and dogs, but it wasn't so bad that you didn't have the majority of the trail available to walk on.

worst. hike.ever. Unless of course you love horse and dog s***. The "hike" is the back of people's homes. So scenic lol. I left and went on a real hike.

I live 2 blocks from the trailhead, so this is my go-to for keeping myself in shape and heat conditioning myself (I'm the crazy person who starts at 1pm when it's hottest). I'm on this trail at least twice a week when I'm not traveling for work. When I have time, I make it a bit more interesting by zig-zagging back and forth between the upper and lower trails, taking all the small connection trails back and forth. I have turned this 6-mile hike into 8 miles many times by doing that.

Took this loop for the first time and boy was it a treat! I loved having a trail that is "easy" not too steep, etc. but still pushes me because of the distance, etc. The one section of the river bed that you had to cross was dried up so it was just rocks, and there were a number or horses but the trail is wide enough you feel safe and nobody is in each other's way. Definitely doing this one again.

The trail is mostly wood chips and sun-exposed which was fine. My gripe was the horse and dog poo along with a dozen side trails that made me had to keep checking my GPS to make sure I was on a legitimate trail. Bathrooms at the TH. One water crossing (take off your shoes) and one bridged water crossing.

there's a ton of horse pooh, and the vegetation looked dead. It was a good hike in all.

Easy. Surrounded by houses. In the middle of Sandy. Take sunblock. Its OK.

Hiked a portion of this trail from the Centennial Loop Trail Junction north to the the Junction with the North Rim Trail.

A nice, easy trail with sparse shade on the second half. It is a little urban for my taste, as much of the path runs right alongside homes. The path is clearly marked with plenty of smaller offshoots from the main trail. If you normally hike in Chacos or sandals, I suggest different footwear for this hike. The mulch and pebble path makes for a lot of debris in your footbed. Overall, a pleasant and easy day hike.

I came to the trail to do some trail running. Definitely didn't like running in all the mulch. Better suited my taste for walking.
