Pretty easy hike. Some up hills but they weren’t difficult. Really nice views of the hills and lake. Perfect morning hike!

Lots of gnats around the lake

We had a great hike! There are many trail options to choose from. There are bathrooms near the Santiago Creek playground area, with soap, running water, and drinking fountains. There's a $5 entrance fee on the weekends ($3 on weekdays). There were several mountain bikers, and everyone was friendly. Beware of poop!

A little crowded but overall good hike !

Not to shabby! A lot of uphill ridge walking. Not a lot of shade at all.

Easy. Dog friendly. Lots of foot traffic and mountain bikers. Very sandy.

Just came to check it out and found two nice little 20 min trails that were just what I needed. Can’t wait to explore the rest more.

Nice trail, not too crowded on Labor day. Still recovering from the fires but beautiful nature all the same!

short hike today because of humidity was really high-48%. Dogs allowed but because most of it blacktop paved and mostly no shade, be careful with the puppy paws.

the roadrunner connection from Willow is totally overgrown and impassible. not sure how someone hiked this one week ago. that being said I did enjoy the Willow trail. lots of birds around, road traffic intermittently heard.

It’s hard Steep .. will do it again

Pretty nice trails definitely good for mountain bikes. A lot of narrow trails but some good wide ones as well for walking. Has pretty steep inclines to work out those quads. Nice little nature center by parking lot that is kinda hidden:

spent saturday morning exploring this trail and it was a fun little hike with some great view points. luckily we had cloud cover as there is zero shade on this trail. definitely take time to stop at both look out points on oak trail. once you get back going hike up to robbers roost. the views there are amazing! once you start on barham ridge trail make sure to look around and you will see many people on different trails all getting some good exercise. but please note there are mountain bikers everywhere at this point. particularly at the fork of coachwhip trail, barham ridge trail and deer trail, it's like a huge honey hole of mountain bikers resting and just mingling with their friends. before shooting down mountain goat trail stop one last time at the look out point for the great views. from there its a fun semi rocky single trail back down to the parking lot.

Decent trail, pretty overgrown in most parts and loads of rattlesnakes that are common in the area are out and about. Not much of a challenge, just some winding and incline here and there when climbing the hills. Allows you to hike further back into the hills and take other trails, however some are closed due to the overgrowth or otherwise.

My 4 year old and I did this hike and the nature center after, it was a lot of fun. I did end up having to carry him the majority of the way back but we had a blast. Take at least 3 bottles of water per person and some fruit to eat under shade if you have children with you. Will definitely be going again.
