Streams, waterfall. About 7 miles roundtrip. Several side paths that all lead you back to the main path. Green all around, wide path, dogs on leash allowed.

Strollers (jogging) and mountain bikes. Kids and dog loves it. If you want to play on the water fall, bring change of shoes.

This one was amazing! We went on a different trail that took us through the middle of the designated Fortuna Loop (don't worry, we stayed on paths and didn't do any trailblazing...), but it was all great. It was so green from all the rain! Loved it. We did see a rattlesnake, though, so be careful!

We did 4 miles of this trail. The views were stunning. The wildflowers were in full bloom and the hills were as green as Ireland.

very easy but long. love the water fall

Good little hike, saw a fat rattlesnake crossing the trail!!

Very scenic and an easy hike.

Beautiful views, but this trail gets VERY popular when the weather is good. If you don't mind the crowds and moving a little slower, the view from the top is worth it!

4 stars only because of the flowing river and views at the end. Pretty flat trail which I'm ok with but 7miles of it will get a little old. Luckily I had great company and there were tons of dogs splashing around in the pools. Trail runners would love this hike.

The trail was temporarily closed

Pretty steep from the front, a little linger and less steep from the back side. Beautiful view from the top. Only downside is how busy it gets on this fairly narrow trail.
