Really enjoyed running here. If you choose to the top is really step but view is awesome. There are other trails that are easier for my kids. Great area.

We loved coming out here. There isn't a lot of shade so bring lots of water and sunscreen!

This tail is a great workout well worth the views on the mountain trail when you reach the top. Not much green in Bakersfield so this was also nice.

The only downfall to this place is the lame "waterfall" that is like a broken sprinkler head pouring into a puddle lol. The bugs are nuts too so bring repellent.

I don't know why this trail is listed as one trail! There's multiple trails and branches everywhere. Take lots of water in the summer because it's not unusual for this area to get to 105°f. Watch for snakes, on one day I stepped on one 4ft Red Racer that made me scream like a girl and the other was a rattle snake which made myself rethink my Duality of nature! Eitherway great for bikes, runs, family adventures and general exploration!

Easy trails, uphill for the first 2 miles of the Tule Elk trails. Downhill and flat lands for the rest of the way along the San Emigdio canyon.

Great well maintain trails. Lots to see and they even have a shuttle on the weekends if you run in to trouble and need a ride back. The trail up to reflection pond is intense but well worth it!
