  • This place once had a railway transverse through it, now it's a pathway which can be used by hikers, horses, and bicyclists. There is the main canyon trail that meanders through it along the creek and the uplands that loop and crisscross one another. The lower/canyon trail is more popular and young family friendly. Bicyclists will find more of a challenge with the uplands. Bicycles and equines are limited to dry weather for tail preservation. Parking located in 3 different areas.
  • Great little hike with the kiddos and friends on a Saturday morning. Trailheads from either end of the trail, with a number of loops available throughout. The coolest part was the side trails that lead to a number of wineries in the area. Whole trail was about 5 miles (from one end, to the other and back) and the terrain was nice with a dog and little squirts that preferred to be carried after a bit! Trail was nicely marked, there were a number of fun little bridges that went over the creek that runs alongside much of the trail and the scenery is very nice. A morning hike here would be fantastic and even when it was hot out, it wasn't terrible. We're excited to explore this one a bit more in the near future!
  • Great hike from end to end. Took me and my dog about 2 hours to do it but we stop and take pictures a lot. Neat and clean path for all ages and fun bridges over streams. There are some side trails and even one that leads to a winery, which could make a fun date. All and all 5 stars will hike again.
  • Was our first time there got lost For 3 hours lol wanted to cry felt like is was never ending lol. Couldn't find my way back ..was pretty fun though my friend angel said she will never do again..
  • Fantastic place to wander. Nice wide flat trail (former railroad) if you need it, but plenty of smaller trails up the canyon to get away from the main trial and avoid people. A lovely place to spend the afternoon
