Great! The loop is pretty short, and most could do it without difficulty. Steep areas. Crossing of rocks over a pond. There is also an option to walk on a trail that goes past the area with the large trees and hose and has a nice incline up to beautiful views. About 1.3 miles steep uphill incline - ends with private property and no trespassing sign. Both me and my dog love this trail.

Good hike, especially for a quick morning work out! Multiple trails to take to lengthen or shorten your walk.
Trail has both challenging and easy parts. My dog loves it !

the trail is sloped in some areas which makes it harder to walk on, its like your walking lopsided. nice hike but no shade so definitely winter only

Although there are trails signs, for me it was not easy to navigate as the trail I was following is not the one labeled on AllTrails. However, once you’ve done it once, it’s easy enough to figure out all the other times going forward. There was lots of wildlife, streams, still some snow, and all as always the views were wonderful. The dogs and I both enjoyed!

Will never do this trail again. Very narrow and confusing. Not a good trail to walk with small dogs. There were many little trails that shoot off in different directions. Definitely not for beginners. If you do this trail, make sure to go with someone who’s done it before. Had to follow with satellite view just to get back to the car. Very disappointed.

I needed to use my AllTrails app to follow the loop, there were lots of confusing intersections and options. I also agree with another hiker who stated that the trail was narrow and deep in places, like a very narrow ditch. Kinda weird. But it was a nice evening hike, quiet, views.

Nice family trail. About a fourth to a third of the trail from the main entrance is more of a nature walk, with several information booths along the way. After that it's an easy trail with a nice picnic area when you approach the southern most spot. They have benches and plenty of open spaces for the little ones to run around. Close enough to the lower parking lot that you can just head there for a picnic day.

This trail is great anytime of the year.

Unable to access the trail via Birch Creek Lane. Locked gate with Private Property/ No Trespassing signs. Adjacent roadside roped off with No Parking signs.
Be aware that you can access the same area from the Bearpaw Preserve on the other side of the ridge, just off Highway 38. You need a permit to access the preserve (and a code to enter the locked gate,). however you can obtain a permit free online. The distance and elevation to the top of the divide trail are about the same. The Bearpaw trail is not on the Alltrails map, however this is a well maintained truck trail to the top of the ridge.

The Oak Glen Wetlands Conservancy is very attractive, popular (including neighboring Los Rios Rancho "apple/etc. store), and well maintained. There is a steep 700 foot rise to Preservation Point, the end of the Conservancy. Here there is a easy to cross Gate to the fire road which is 20 feet away. I've checked with the local sheriffs department and Fire and Forestry. The fire road is used by hikers and bikers regularly. It was however advised that you do not drop down via the fire roads into Oak Glen housing or the housing along Wildwood Canyon Road. The long down is characterized by almost continuous ridge views down into the valleys.

Great trail. Nice time with my wife and kids.

this hike is fun and rewarding with a beautiful view from the top. pretty tough first time.

Great for mountain biking, walking. Not real far. Still nice though.

No markers or trail signs. Trespassing signs. Good bike trails.

This was a nice easy trail, lots of different scenery and many loops to follow. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't find it hard to navigate, there were many signs indicating the different trails. We saw a man who lived nearby, on his horse, he was helpful in telling us about the trails and the history behind the abandoned house. We walked up to the old abandoned house, which was pretty cool.
Plenty of parking.

quite a hard climb - narrow rough path with lots of steep climbs and no shade, but a great view at the end. saw lots of droppings along the way, so must be a natrual path for all the wild animals here. to get there, it's best to cross the dry creakbed right where you park and look for vague trail going towards hills - key is to get yourself up on the ridge, where the trail is.

Nice little mile loop and picnic areas.

Easy and pretty hike. Once we made the loop My 4 and 5 year old asked to do it again so we went the opposite way.

Great hike to take kids. Multiple interactive spots for them. Free entrance. Perfect spot if your beginning to hike as it's very easy. Be careful in the summer/warmer days because a lot of trees are dried and there's less shade causing temps to go up quick. Lots of small trails along the large loop. I grabbed a map they had but there's no need. We ended up walking around randomly and made it back just fine.

I love this hike!!

Clean, moderate to easy difficulty depending on your fitness levels. Bring a camera , decent photo ops.

It was a great hike, but by no means easy!! Maybe I took the wrong hike. I started down at the other parking lot because the first one was full. Starting from there, it was a lot of downhill, then a little bit of flat by some picnic tables, and then a LOT of uphill. Where was the EASY hike?

I wouldn’t say this hike was hard..challenging on some inclines but they were short and my 9 year old was able to do them...we did about 5.5 miles..we couldn’t figure out which Peak was actually the peak 2 of them looked about the same so we hiked to both. We could have clocked in more miles but the trails were not marked as to where it would take you...there were small trails that took off from the main trail and we thought we were doing a loop until we realized we weren’t going to end up back to our car..inside the regional park. So we just turned around and back tracked. The trail we were on was mostly narrow and switched back and forth..careful for mountain bikers they will usually announce themselves. Over all good quick local hike. Nice view of the mountains around.

fun hike. great for the whole family. we even took our small dog and he did great. we will do it again.

Steep and blasted by the sun till after the bench. After that the canyon is pretty and has green plants.

Took the dog out this morning for a quick hike. Turned around at the first water crossing (about 1.8 miles). Couple of mountain bikers encountered. Nice, close trail that can be done completely, or in smaller sections.

I’ve walked and hiked this trail a few times. It’s a nice trail to get away for a little while. Not far from where I live. Easy to find and lots of wildlife to see. Deer,Bobcat,Rabbit,Coyote. Rattle snakes during summer months.
