Easy trail. A little confusing on getting to the other side but once you're there the signs work great. It's not really a hike, more of a trail walk.

Very easy. This is a levy road tail along the river. Check in is somewhat hard to find - located behind industrial park. Don't go at dusk. Could be unsafe due to homeless population.

Super easy trail and well marked. Nice for a stroll, but wouldn't head here if you really want to do some hiking. This trail is more for bird watching and just getting outdoors.

There were no signs indicating where to turn off Hwy 99 for the trail head and I had to follow directions in a book to find it as my GPS wanted to take me somewhere else. The End sign on the road to the trail just means that's where the concrete road ends; keep going straight until the dirt road dead-ends into the parking lot.
I misinterpreted the signs along the trail (reading Private Property) as a "keep out" so I ended up missing half of the actual trail. I found it along the top-most loop/north firebreak though.
The trails that I did go on were clearly marked and very well maintained. I went pretty early in the day in hopes of seeing some wildlife, but only saw a couple rabbits and a peacock. I heard quite a few different birds, but did not see them. Overall it was a pleasant 5-mile walk.

Walked a few of the paths. We went through the middle and not along the river. It's super green. It was about 5 miles round trip. We saw lots of birds and turtles sunbathing. It's an easy trail. When you pull up it feels like you're on someone's property because of a few homes and orchards. You have to go onto the dirt road just a few 100 ft to actually see the entrance. Over all it was a fun walk.
