Eisenhower Park Hillview, Red Oak, and Cedar Flats Trails

Eisenhower Park: Hillview, Red Oak, and Cedar Flats Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Hillview and Cedar Flats Trails have been combined into a counterclockwise loop. This provides a range of hiking from easy to moderate through some of the most scenic sections of the 320-acre park. Cedar Flats Trail is wheelchair and stroller accessible.

This Hillview Trail starts near the kiosk, which features a large trail map and pocket-size maps. Be sure to take one of the small maps that also include an interpretive guide for plants that are identified by short marker posts along the trail. The guide was an Eagle Scout project of Boy Scout Troop 650. Restroom facilities and water fountains are available. Parts of these trails have no shade, so wear a hat and sunscreen, and take plenty of water."

"This hike is best in cooler weather or cloudy days, as it is sunny and dry and there is no water on the route, so be sure you carry enough for you and Fido. There are shaded pavilions, restrooms, and water fountains at the parking area. This rugged urban park offers a number of trail options. The Hill View Trail is the longest, following the perimeter for roughly 2.5 miles. But a significant portion, a wide, rocky, partially shady uphill route going clockwise from the parking area, hews close to a tall fence with a noisy quarry on the other side, then along some very large and noisy powerlines. A better alternative is to head in a clockwise direction on the Yucca Trail, which is paved for about a quarter mile, then becomes a narrow route, alternately smooth dirt and rocky jumble that resembles a streambed more than a trail. It winds in and out of cedar trees and gradually climbs until it joins the Cedar Flats Trail—the trails here are very well marked. Even though this roadlike trail is asphalt surface, it is flanked by lush growth." Read more
