Great trails! Cougar sightings recently, and my dogs always get ticks up there

Super short trail. Went on a hot day, lots of bugs, and trail was super overgrown so i went home after 15 minutes of trying to find a clear path

Enjoyable trail run. The clearcuts were unfortunate though!

This hike was awesome. I loved the view at the end and would definitely recommend. Plus, you are under cover for a fair amount of time in forest so it isn’t too bad on a hot day. Just make sure you bring lots of water!

Good hike with great views at the top. Well trafficked road so you don’t feel secluded but still a good hike.

I will be back to do this one again! There are many ways to reach the summit. We took the back way where the old barn is to your right. This trail is more narrow, steeper, and was inundated with flies. The larger path back down was far more open with a gradual incline and softer ground. The trails are well maintained and clearly marked. I won't lie, it was rough for a larger girlie just getting back into hiking, but the view was well worth it!

This is an EASY trail. Not even close to moderate. Mostly road hiking, clear cut areas really take you out of nature. But there are some peaceful areas. Super short, should be considered an afternoon stroll more than anything.

My husband and 4 year old and I had fun walking this trail! It was our little ones first trail and we ended up doing both the old and new growth trails. Loved the bridges and lush growth along the way. Will do this again with our extended family!

This is my favorite Peavy Arboretum hike. Last went up this two months ago but wanted to review it as I have gone up this several times in the last year. It is just long enough to be some what challenging but short enough to be convenient. Great hiking choice during winter and fall as it never seems to be raining as much as it does in the valley. The lake is a nice view spot and the views to the west near the top is good but the single track wilderness trails are the best part. I highly recommend you follow the Powder House trail instead of the logging roads to keep it scenic and woodsy.

Perfect quick hike with nice views.

Spent Sunday hiking up Bald Hill. It's a beautiful and peaceful area. I am just working on getting back into shape and into hiking, so cresting the top of the bill was most difficult for me, but definitely not so hard that I'd never do it again. Got a great workout, and saw some beautiful scenery and wildlife.

This trail is nice for beginners-moderate hikers because there are multiple cut offs that all you to make a loop as short as about 1.1 miles to as long as 3+ miles.

Nice trail. I end up on this when I go to McDonald a lot. a good walk in the woods.

Baby cows too.

Beautiful views in several directions from the top. First 1/3 of the trail is uphill. Wild iris is blooming. Saw a number of woodpeckers and nuthatches.

Nice open flat paved path between the end of Circle Blvd to Harrison. Saw a number of brush rabbits along the route. Unfortunately, ground clearing has begun on a large development near the path and orange plastic fencing has been installed along the route.

Fairly easy hike close to home and fairly short. Trail not well marked so we got lost and found ourselves paralleling Walnut Blvd before backtracking and finding the right path. A bit noisy with road noise and power equipment in use by the apartment buildings adjacent to the trail.

Long gradual descent on gravel road before trail takes off into trees. It’s worth the trek, however, to see the biggest living trees I have ever seen! Wildflowers such as trillium, bleeding heart and yellow violets are in bloom now. Pretty much had the trail to ourselves at 5:30 pm Tuesday. Uphill on the way back.

Easy mostly flat well maintained and marked trail. Five or six types of wildflowers in bloom. Trail is shared with bicyclists, some of whom do not announce their arrival so be alert.

Nice easy trail. beautiful scenery. my 7 year old loved this section of trai.

Way too muddy today. I guess that’s what you should expect when it’s been raining all week including earlier today. Slipping and sliding the whole way. I think it will be a nice hike ewith a dry “er” trail. There were some pretty big tracks in the mud, which were probably from a black bear or a very big dog or someone with a black bear footprint maker walking stick, whatever that’s called. My dog is “supposedly“ a malamute and German shepherd mix, more on the German Shepherd size and those prints were way bigger than his. At first I thought mountain lion but after a little research, visible claws is unlikely to represent a cat.

It’s my favorite local long trail. On a nice day the view is fairly pretty, but don’t go on a popular day.

Hreay trail. We met the director of Land Trust and learned a lot about the area.

Great place to walk the dog and get some exercise. Beautiful on a sunny day but Thursday there was a rainbow across the little valley and I did not have my phone to take a picture! Trails are still muddy in the shade.

Great trail! We did have to park across the highway because there’s only 4 spots.

great trail, well maintained. I'm glad I didn't bring my 2 young children as it would have been too hard for them. Definently not stroller/toddler friendly.
