Was a very nice trail! Great view, high traffic! Lots of dog walkers. At the top is a great area to take a break and relax. Was a fun hike!

Kids love this place. Big cross on top of the mountain can’t get any better.

It’s a well-lit walk and nicely maintained. The earlier reviews from four years ago were correct but it has changed significantly. I would recommend to park in the neighborhood at the far north of the walk near the park and head south and back.

Pretty easy trail. A lot of trash where it's a party spot for local kids but the area is still pretty neat. Can find old foundations if you know what to look for. Trail is actually 16 miles from Zaleski to mineral but still some bridges missing that are supposed to be put in place in the next few years.

We went up from the dog park and BOY WAS THAT A STEEP GOOD CHALLENGE!!!!

Nice and steep

Hiked the 11 miles from the east end in Weatherford to Garner. Wide and very well maintained. Path was flat and not really much elevation change, so makes for an easy hike/walk.

the best running views and waterfalls if your going for miles

Great beginner trail, my first time today and I would say it was easy but very rocky and bumpy. Other than that great views and a great time

Beautiful trail, today it was a quiet and peaceful day, almost no other people arround. We only met some fishermen, and a bunch of teenagers enjoying nature within their tents.

The challenge for this trail is more about time than anything else. It's an easy, level walk - a well-maintained surface. I'm tempted to mark it as wheelchair accessible. But it isn't paved. Took my Yorkie mix puppy Nellie Bly one mile out and back. That's all I wanted to push her little legs at 6 months. But she's fit and ready and, as long as I keep her out of the burdock on the trailside, the trail begs us to go farther - and this little dog and I will comply!

I've done this a couple of times. It is really more of a walk than a hike in my opinion. Also, it is not as secluded as I would prefer.

Yes absolutely should you rent a bike, and I command you to rent it from Stretch, the gentle giant with plush spirit animals tied to his bikes for half the price of the competitors. No, you do not need no stinking map, it will be obvious where to go, there's smoke. You will want to mark the location of your bike on your map though, as you'll be hiking back to it in pitch darkness, unless there's something wrong with you and you don't want to see lava in the dark. You want to see it in the dark. From the bike ditch point we hiked about 2 miles to the north east towards the slopes, there was no flow into the ocean that day. After your hike at dusk over crispity crunchy newly formed earth, you will come upon an the active area, active with lava and active with people. At this point you will start to notice many people freaking out as they realize their feet are burning. This should alarm you, especially if you're wearing Converse Chuck Taylor's (humanity's greatest hiking shoe), as you soon become aware that your feet are practically on fire because you just ran right up to lava and locked eyes with it, unable to look away. There is a simple trick: Move to a cooler rock. Yes, there are cool rocks right next to the hot ones, they are typically the ones that don't look like there's a BBQ underneath them. Another trick for not dying: try to stay upwind of the lava. Death tends to occur when one is standing near the lava, it begins to rain, and POOF! a beautiful hot cloud of sulfurous death envelopes you! Now that's what I call fun. Certainly someone has died trying to cook a hot dog over the stuff. Some people deserve it, hot dogs are bad news. Be sure to have fresh batteries in your headlamp, the hike back to your bike will take longer since you're not racing towards sexy magma in the daylight, you're stumbling around in the dark and giggling. Stretch had already closed up by the time we got back, but we ran into him the next day and he was thankful we put the bikes away under the tarp. What a guy. Thank you Stretch. Thank you Pele.

Easy, flat, well maintained path. Perfect for riding and coasting intermittently. My teen daughter says it's relaxing.

So pretty, easy walk! Dog friendly and it wasn’t that crowded.

Diggin' this rail trail! I grew up in Hudson and even got to watch the building of some of this trail. It's great for a long walk, a jog or bike ride. And it's beautifully scenic as it scrolls along the Assabet River and through the ever-growing downtown Hudson area and into Marlborough. Worth the hike, check it out. (Park in Hudson. No parking reported in Marlborough.)

Evenly paved, wide trail. Signs clearly marking trail and crosswalks are marked. Trail seems to be safe. There was a good bit of trash along the way.

Easy walk with a romantic aura to it, by the water. Good workout. Great ocean views.

When last I did it it was from spindale to the lumber mill in Gilkey, so about what this shows. very fun trail for biking. Pretty good amount of traffic but nice serene environment in some points and a small town historic feel through others. It's a good walk if you're looking for a walking trail, but if you want real hiking you might be a bit bored

I want to do this hike with my friend, but we will need 2 cars. One at each end because we plan on doing the whole hike one way. Where do you park at on the southern end?

It's close and easy to get to. Great camping on either end. Boulder County is awesome about marking the forestry roads.

Great trail!!

Yea this is ridiculous this is not a trail this is a sidewalk next to the road. You see a sidewalk in front of your house? If so well go take a walk it will be exactly the same. There was one little spot that went up a hill and next to a small lake but besides that it is just a paved sidewalk next to the street and I was ok with that because I seen the pictures and was like ok there must be a little spot next to a golf course atleast for a little bit that will make it worth it. NOPE there is not a spot on this trail that looks like the 2 pictures with a golf course.

Definitely not a hiking trail, as it’s a paved walking/bike path. Several informational boards along the way describe the history of the area. You are also able to see remains from the ghost town of Billmyer. I found the “cliffs” to be neat but underwhelming. The orange fencing is still up but easy to walk around. Watch your step and wear proper footwear as there is a ton of glass, old scrap metal, and other remains along this trail and the cliffs.

No birds when we went, but lots of interesting driftwood and rocks to examine. We just drove up to the reserve boundary, parked on the side of the road, and walked from there. Not really a hike, but an enjoyable stroll.

This is my go-to trail when i wake up to nice weather. It’s nice for all ages, stroller friendly, and pet friendly. There is a paved trail wrapping up the mountain but you can also hike straight up the side if you like. It does get crowded around 10, so I try to go earlier if I’m planning on running. But even when it’s busy, there is usually plenty of parking at Ryan bonaminio Park.

Not much of a historic site hike and views of Pearl Harbor along this trail are undesirable. Homeless camps and several areas with heavy tribe smell. May be better bike than hike trail. I would NOT recommend going alone
