City View and Walnut Forest Trails Loop Reviews

We enjoyed this park, even though sections of our trail were very steep with loose gravel. The day we hiked was very hot and during the driest part of the year. There is not an abundance of shade so be sure to bring plenty of water.

Nice view of the city
