Enjoy the small, rolling hills and smooth trail. In short, a fantastic loop!

Description

Overall, this trail is the smoothest within Sweetwater Preserve. From the trailhead, there is a slight climb that gets you to a nice vantage point overlooking the parking lot rather quickly. The trail primarily stays along the sides of the hills as you hike along the valleys. There are plenty of quail and bunnies to enjoy and the occasional deer or rattlesnake might make an appearance depending on the weather. It is an easy trail but there are enough toe catchers to trip you up if you aren't paying attention. Rolling hills along the loop with multiple quick and short dips that make the trail a joy to hike.

There's no water in the park, so make sure you bring enough for your outing.
