Pretty trail. As others have stated, the distance and elevation on here are a bit off, it's closer to 4 miles & 1000' r/t.

Great views and soundscapes of the water while hiking is the most serene experience. Go alone or with a friend and you won't be disappointed.

Very nice trail. Well marked and groomed. A bit confusing at times with many forks in the trail. Great shade and locations to stop and take pics.

All I can say is wish it was longer

It's a bit short but a good warm up til you get to the more difficult trails.

Easy, scenic, can't really go wrong with that

I love all the trails out at memorial park. This one is nice to jump on when you're tired from the more hilly routes.

Great for when my other off road trails are washed out. It's scenic and winding so it's difficult to get bored. Please leave valuables are anything really, at home. Come with an empty car. I've had my car broken into before and so have several others.

Love this trail it's my favorite. I have run and walked this and just enjoyed the scenery along the way every time.

This trail has multiple trailheads. At one trail head, Sierra Oaks, there's a nice playground, there's exercise equipment, and most importantly cool water from a clean fountain.

As for trail running, this one is fairly short, even if you take all the many offshoots. But don't let that deter you. This trail has, quiet possibly, the most rocky and rooty trails. Need a good workout for your feet specifically? Need to learn where to step so as to not slip or twist your ankle? Want to get some "high stepping" going (so as to avoid tripping and such)? This is your trail. And sometimes the trail gets so technical for short stretches, that you almost wonder if you're still on the actual trail, due to the jutting rocks, skinny trail, trees and rots everywhere. All in all, this is a great workout.

Also, this trail doesn't have any really steep or long hills, but it does have some steps, some inclines, etc. The creek crossings are pretty cool, all of them have good rocks to go across on. And the trail is marked very well. The signs are in very good condition and easy to spot. There are also some benches along the way.

All in all, I give this a four, and not a five, for the short length and the lack of any really good hill climbs (though in the neighborhood itself, via the streets and sidewalks, you can get some good hill work in).

Great trail. Topography is varied and shade is wonderful. Excellent place for all ages. Several places with tables and benches to sit relax and hydrate or picnic. Trails are somewhat different than those on map. Load a trail app to insure you're traveling the right direction. If you're hiking... watch for bikers... they can sneak up on you.

Fun place to explore. I really enjoyed the rocky climbs. Looks like it is well-traveled by bikes, but we were the only ones there this evening. Clean trails, well maintained. Really enjoyed it with the family.

Spent four days backpacking/camping here with a camping group. We also booked the tour for the bats at the mining area. It was very, very dry and dusty until a storm quickly rolled through. The Heavy rain washed several tents away in a matter of minutes. Mine stayed standing possibly because I used 4 steel tent stakes. Next year, I'd like to visit in the fall to enjoy longer hikes.
