    This was a less than spectacular trail at this time of year. The trail is open to horses and mountain bikes and the horses leave a lot of piles of **** to avoid on the trail. Much of the scenery was dominated by homes on the hills (not something I want to see when hiking).

    This hike was saved by deviating from the loop trail. To do this start the trail on the west side heading north, at the first fork stay right, at the second fork stay right, then at the third fork go left (this is the deviation), if you stay right you stay on the loop trail. On the deviation you go into a more forested area where there is far more wildlife and nature to see. Keep following this trail and stay right at the forks, it will eventually lead you back to the loop trail and back to your car.

    The hike itself is easy, nearly no elevation gains. But I would really recommend the Los Santos trail on the south side of Tenaka Rd instead where only hikers are allowed.
