part of the trail on the west side is still closed due to the fires. You can navigate around this area and complete the trail, but it's a bit tricky finding a "through route".

Really enjoyed the trails here. Parking is only $5, not bad at all. There are several different trails to chose from, although there are a few that are closed due to the fires. Amazing views, super clean restrooms, and friendly park rangers. Will definitely be coming back. There is just a lot of horse poop, but nothing you can't walk past.

$5 to park. Not bad. Comes with a detailed map!!! Love it! Currently, some of the trails are closed due to the recent fire but they are super clear about which trails are open. Even with some trails being closed there were still a ton of trail options! Also we saw a crawfish so that was cool!

Really good trail to go on!
Many trails to pick from as well. They all connect at the ends.
Great view from the top!

I’d say it’s longer than the length advertised, parts of the trail are still closed but we were able to follow most of it. It’s a nice hike!

We couldn't actually find this trail. The guys up front were no help at all. Neither of them knew where the trail was. We eventually got a map from them. We started out on what we though was the Santiago Creek Trail but never actually found it. We ended up on Lone Pine Ridge Trail, which took us to a higher elevation and ended up being a "Moderate" instead of "easy" hike. It had some decent inclines. Very light traffic. Much of the park is still very charred. Very sad to see. I wish they had better signage.

Too crowded even on a weekday afternoon. Too many bikers and people playing loud music while you’re walking, scaring off all wildlife. Not to mention. Due to the fires, only the outside area is open, causing you to hear a ton of traffic while you’re at it. Big nature lover, but between everything, you just feel like you’re waking along a street and there happens to be some nature nearby.

Our little pup had a wonderful time, as did we !!

i loved it!! and if you aren’t wanting to hike or walk with kids there’s so many other stuff to do here as well. there’s, a zoo, horseback riding, there’s a train! overall i think this was the best place i’ve visited so far. it’s great! :) highly recommend it

great views and birdwatching (woodpecker, hawk, multiple smaller birds). many signs of regrowth after the fires with saplings and wild flowers popping up.

Solid park with diverse landscapes that allow you to choose your level of difficulty.

Definitely need to go back soon.

I will definitely return to this one since it is not too far from where I live and there are so many trails I didn't do on Sunday. There are many interlinking trails and we did the shorter trails that were closer to the creek since there were people in our group who don't do much hiking and wanted to take it easy on them. We did about 4 miles and there wasn't much incline. I will do some of the harder, longer trails next time.

Parking- we paid $5 since it was Sunday (weekdays are $3); there was a friendly worker at the gate who provides us with a map;
Trails- wide multi-use trails that are great for sharing with mountain bikes (there were many) and there was lots of clues on the trail that horses use these trails too but we didn't see anyone on horseback; i preferred the trails closer to the entrance where the round, concrete steps to cross the creek are.

it's a work-out with a great view.

Good trail with lots of hill climbing. You are rewarded with some good views of the mountains and hills.

I enjoy everything about this hike

awesome hike. some.areas still.closed due to the fires but definitely recommended!

Great place, easy trials for the kids from 3yrs and up.

had many trails to choose from. wish we would have come earlier to explore more.

Great place for beginners to start hiking!

A good portion of the park was burned in the recent fires but they've since opened some of the trails again. Went today and there were several crews surveying the damage and tractors removing dead trees. The hiking is always good here, though. Easy trails good for running.

12/16/17: This is the only trail open at present and the loop is partially closed due to recent fires. Only went a tenth of a mile and turned back to walk the rest of the park. I spoke with maintenance workers who stated that the fire burned underground, so it will be some time until trails are reopened. I was also told that the trail, right now, is just a straight chute to the Santiago Oaks Trail then turn back. Not suitable for WC or stroller, but nut difficult. A few people on mountain bikes.

Unfortunately all the trails are close due to the fires that came through the area

I can't really rate it, since it's closed due to the fires.
