This is a beautiful trail that sits on fish and game lands but is surrounded by a suburban neighborhood. It is very well maintained and seems to be heavily used by local residents and their dogs. We saw over a dozen dogs on the trail -- not one of them on a leash -- but every dog was well disciplined and under control. We observed owners picking up dog waste as necessary and no litter of any kind was in sight.
Early on the path, one crosses a stream with a beautiful semi-covered bridge; benches are available to enjoy the view. Benches were also available on the higher elevations of the trail that overlook the valley and rolling hills. A fork in the trail accesses the end loop of the trail; hikers can choose to go up to the top via the steeper but shorter path or the less steep but longer trail. Know that even the longer trail is very demanding. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Nice hike to get up and out quickly if you don't have much time for a hike but just need to get out. It does loop around and has a map on the trail head to keep you in the right direction. Fun but easy hike. I packed my 25 lb daughter with me on this one and was really nice.

Good hike if you don't have a lot of time but need a quick workout. Best to do in the spring avoid end of summer do to all the dog poo. Has three different trails to take depending on how you would like to be challenged. I have been many times with a baby on my back and children. Very easy for them as well.

Easy hike, in fact a good trail to run. Easy trailhead to find and a great view of the city from the top. Best to go in the spring due to the wild flowers.
