Good hiking, at various difficulty levels. Nice views of the surrounding hills. Very relaxing. As mentioned, you do have to keep an eye peeled for rattlesnakes. Last year, I saw the biggest rattlesnake I have ever seen, just off the main trail to Round Valley. It had at least 12 buttons. Also, in October, be careful you don't step on... More

I love hiking here and every season brings a different look. The creek has dried out very early this year, so no opportunity to creek playing with kids, but it is still pretty up there. When it is greener, it is nice as there are usually lots of cows around every turn. Fun to check out the tracks on the... More

Nice local place to get out and hike! Not a lot of shade so beware in summer. Also in summer you have to look out for rattle snakes. I have seen several here and they are big. I love it in the spring and fall.

Round Valley offers several trails with varied diffiulty. It's a pretty area, some open, some in the trees. We have had to navigate around the grazing cows occasionally but they just ignored us.

Round Valley Regional preserve is a hidden gem. Cross over a bridge with a creek filled with water after the rains, and dry in the fall, filled with boxing turtles and wildlife. After crossing the bridge head left to meander along the creek, or go straight crossing the cattleguard gate and enter a preserve filled with trails that either head... More
