it was a great trail. we took our 5 yr old son he did great. we went about 1/2 they whole way and turned back because of other events taking place at the landing. we will definitely do it again. heads up there is a ton of poison oak on the trail so be really aware of what you touch and what your little touch. also there is an obvious incline as you climb to the top. there are very narrow parts too so be aware of other hikers and bikers.

Nice leisurely hike with plenty of shade and nice views of the hills. Lots of bugs though, so would suggest spraying yourself with bug repellent beforehand.

Really lovely hike with lots of birds and hawks. I’d call it more easy than moderate.

Love this place , thank you JMLT!

Good hike just do a tick check every now and then. They’re everywhere!

I loved this trail. Not too hilly, but enough to get your heart rate up a bit. I went on a late afternoon/early evening on Saturday and was the only one there. Very quiet, clean and nice views over the hills.

Lots of ticks - but a great hike otherwise!

Will definately go again.

Love this trail. Lots of cows sometimes and you have to shoo them off the path.
