tons of mosquitoes as you get farther back towards the 7 mile area. at times there can be standing water on portions of the trail if there was a storm lately. trail is poorly marked but there are usually lots of other people on the trail too.

great trail, scenic, asphalt well paved and maintained.

If you are looking for a challenging paved trail to skate, this one will definitely give you a workout.

We went around 8am and ran into her me person on the trails. There are so many different options for trails that you could have a different experience each time. We will be going back!

Much longer than .8 miles. The trailhead itself shows 9 miles with multiple ski trail loops you can walk with additional unmapped trails as you go. Very pretty views with the trees and the sand.

Very nice trail, nothing too crazy but a great opportunity to get outside and hike around a bit. There is a fee to get in the park.

This trail is incomplete, under construction with detours into the city. Nice park along the way and interesting history. As for Urban Hiking goes, it was a pleasant hike. I was warned to stay off one section due to homeless encampment.

Great trail but make sure you bring a map - there are a lot of smaller loops and in & outs located within the major loop.

Pretty easy trail. Down hill to the lake, then up hill on the way back. Beautiful views from bluffs

Beautiful hike.

used this trail for training for my 50 miler. it's a 10 mile loop(ignore the 6.9 claim in the description) and it has walking trails that cross 0every so often so you can shorten it to any distance easily.
most of the traffic are mountain bikers.

Beautiful trail, all pines. Great for younger hikers. Take the left route for some reason the views that way around the loop are more stunning...

First time running at this park. Trails weren’t bad for running. Mostly grass trails from what I saw during my 3 mile run. Trails could be marked better, it was easy to get turned around.

I have been there several times with my 4 year old Granddaughter and it's easy enough for her to keep up with me...

Got a little lost on an unfinished trail, but in a good way. Great because you can walk 2 miles or 20 miles.

Very nice trail with easy pathways. Short and easy to navigate. Good scenic areas to rest and very clean. Not much traffic; nice place to sit and think. Beautiful.

This an easy, relaxing trail. There are many options for the loop and the scenery is beautiful all seasons. great location at the base of the old mission peninsula.

The hike isn't very hard, it's just long. The trail offers many options to pick your own path. The new section of boardwalk is a nice edition. Recommended for everyone including the wheelchair accessible section that leads to the lookout.

This trail winds and is steep. The way back to the car will always be at an incline which may be a little difficult for some. The view of the lake was cool too.

Awesome hiking!

Loved our hike!

One of the most beautiful bike rides I have been on. Very easy, but you do have to watch for people on tandem bikes and children.

Due to time and others we just went out and back, was a nice short hike the incline might be a little more strenuous for some people.

Absolutely gorgeous forest! Flowers which attract butterflies. Deer. Paved path with some hills. Well maintained. Bathrooms on the southern end.

This is a great trail with lots of peaceful clearings, winding loops, and quiet river scenes. There are lots of mosquitoes after wet weather, so use bug spray.

Wide paths, well marked. Didn’t see another person the entire time

Mid July. Hiked trail just after tour of the lighthouse ( cool and interesting by the way), the trail was easy for most of it but there was one section that was so overgrown that I felt I needed a machete to get through. Some areas were washed out. The views of the lake were beautiful however. Did not see much wild life other than a few species of frogs and birds. Decent trip.

Enjoyed this hike with family including 2-, 3-, and 7-year-old and several young adults. There are a lot of trails and we needed the app GPS to get back on track, but some nice stops would have been missed if we hadn't strayed a bit . The "old man of the mountain" (a local) led us to the East Bay overlook and we went off-trail for most of the fairy gardens and a nice flower garden. We never actually found the trailhead, but found a parking area behind The Commons that brought us close. Paths were mostly wooded so it wasn't as hot as I feared at midday.

Nice trail. Easy walking. Good variety of scenery. Trail markings are so-so, but the app kept me on track
