My favorite dog-friendly trail. A good workout- and beautiful as well! Nice shade here and there. Gorgeous views of the preserve and the damn blowoff valve. Well maintained. Dogs who are voice trained can go off leash while not on the service road. This one gets an A++ from my Golden Retriever!

It was an okay hike. The scenery was very pretty but a lot of the hike was on old service road, not on what I would consider a trail. I do supppose this would be good if you were with a group of people or pushing strollers.
