  • Visiting from out of town for Christmas, I was happy to discover this trail off Sunnyside Road. It is a lovely scenic trail away from the traffic. I was surprised dogs are not allowed.  more »
  • This awesome place to walk is at the top of our street. It has a large parking lot to park and then walk the beautiful mountainside. No dogs are allowed which is a bummer but many people don't follow ...  more »

  • A beautiful enclave of the wild in the midst of strip malls and superhighways. You can get a good hour of trail walking in without retracing your steps. Well worth the visit.
  • Not family friendly, broken glass everywhere and crowded. Plus no dogs, well dogs are part of nature and clearly do more habitat damage than humans. Not happy my tax dollars are going to a park my family can’t even use.
  • Great trail system. Well maintained, marked trailheads. Easily accessible. Can get busy on sunny days.
  • Love the sense of being out of town. Great place to hike for a half hour or 2 hours, whatever you're in the mood for. My children and I go running here when they need to inexpensively burn some energy. We've searched for 3 geocaches so far, and are planning on hiding some of our own.
  • Great for hiking. It offers a few trails that circle around, and a peaceful atmosphere.
