Man this was a strenuous hike! I enjoyed it minus the 52 traffic noise. That was kind of a buzz kill. There are several different trails that branch out from the north perimeter trail. Overall fun hike, bring your poles and shoes with good traction!

Great hike! If you start by Saddle Trail be careful with the steep descent at perimeter trail; plan for good ankle hiking shoes. Canyon Oak trail is gorgeous!

Good workout.

This such a great loop! Lots of scenic views with the inlets of the lake! Get there early- parking fills us fairly quickly after sunrise on the weekends!

Loved this run! All pavement and nice and flat. Beautiful view and very friendly people doing the same, just getting some fresh air!

Did the hike with my son and we both enjoyed it. My only complaint is certain sections are really close to the road. Still fun tho

This is a great place for both my pregnant self and 3 year old daughter - flat, easy, mostly shaded with lots of intereating nature sights.

Great views with easy access.

I often walk this on Saturday mornings with my dog. It’s easy and pleasant. You’ll see a lot of people on the trail, but it doesn’t feel crowded. My only complaint is the parking fills up rather quickly.

A lot of the trail was next to the road on a narrow path. It made me and my dog a little uneasy as the cars were going 30-40 mph. We did enjoy the parts that weren’t next the road. Probably won’t do this one again, but will explore other options in Balboa Park.

Nice view and clean road. Some shades as well. Always love to see a goose named Louis at the end:)

For an easy walk, this is probably the easiest trail that you could ask for. It is a nice length. I also explored a connecting primitive path up to a little park.
