Definitely a fun place to hike. The trail resembles roller coaster tracks because of it's slopes. The road is curvy and can be a bit scary if you are afraid of heights. You get great views of the mountains and the city on this hike....More

This is an easy hike. It doesn't have lots of steep hills and I believe is not long. You walk to the end and back. A great beginners hike to start with.

Good way to see the flora and fauna of the High Desert area. Especially lovely in the Spring when the poppies bloom. Joggers and bikers welcome but nothing motorized. Quiet and peaceful.
