West Palisades Unit Trail Report:

Good family trail – not a trail for serious hikers – great scenes – good for dog-walking and biking …

West Palisades Unit Trail Report:

This trail is great for anyone wanting to get a variety in their walk/hike. There are easy areas for those wishing to take it easy and the other side of the trail is fairly hilly. The great thing about this trail is that you can get off the paved trail and hike up a small mountain. There is a half way point where you can choose to head back down the way you came, or go on around and head back down, OR you can continue on up some more. It’s really got all levels for most hikers. You can get into some pretty steep climbing if you look at the trail map and follow the right ones. This trail just about has it all. The scenery is beautiful too. Who would ever guess such a lovely place to get away from it all is right in the middle of the business?
