Not a great trail
Yellow trail (the main one) is a perimeter trail (there's always a fence on your left if you take the trail clockwise or on your right if you take it counter-clockwise); great views of other peoples' backyards; much of the trail is in the sun; the forest is mostly young trees; the park is a gay cruising spot? (a lot of what appear to be older gay men just hanging around the last two parking lots or heading into the woods). Not really recommended.
