Good local hike/walk, some nice views and a fairly well maintained trail. Trails exist on both sides of the train tracks that run through the center. Both sides are probably about 2 miles or so with many side paths. This trail is bike friendly.

Trail splits off in 3 directions 3 times in the first half mile. Had no idea where to go.

I agree that it would be helpful if the trail was better marked. Lots of places where the trail split and there was no clear indication of where to go. This wouldn't be a big deal except for we brought our young children along and 4 miles is already a stretch let alone going down a path that extends the hike further. However, we enjoyed that the trail was well maintained and it was pretty cool to reach one of the ridges and see a Boeing airplane fly right over our heads.

This is not a good trail running spot. The trail is not flat and has been carved out by water in a lot of places so the trail has a deep groove and no where flat to step. It would be fine for hiking just not running.

Poor trail and no markings. In several places the trail splits with no indication of where to go. We ended up turning around and leaving.

Didn't like this hike at all. Cool with the track, but that's pretty much it. (Went there about a week ago).

It was a great hike. Good for all skill levels. I only wish it was better marked.
