Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This short but up and down trail gives a quick little workout and if you time it just right you can watch the fountain from the top.

This is an easy hike with wonderful views. Parking is near the trail and you walk through some areas with condos/homes nearby. There are places where you can rest if that is a requirement.

Breathtaking views of Fountain Park and red mountain as well as Four Peaks. AMAZING photo opportunities. We hike this all the time with my kids and dogs. Takes about 45 min --easy/moderate climb. Benches up at the top in 3 spots to sit and rest. Worth hiking.

There is a network of trails in this area. If you are wanting to see the fountain it goes off ever hour for about 15 minutes. If the wind is above a whisper it will not come on.

The trail may be easy if you are young or in good shape. We found it moderate, but doable. We aren't young nor in great shape. It was worth the hike. The views of lake in one direction and mountains in the other are fab. The trail weaves through neighborhoods and up and down some small hills. If the weather is warm to hot, start early. There are restrooms at the lake, but not along the trail. There are a few benches along parts of the trail.
