Great trails
McKinney Roughs - 2/20/2010  [View Log Page]
Rating: 3stars Difficulty: 2stars Solitude: 2stars
Distance: 3.25 Miles Duration: N/A

The trails are well done, with a combination of dirt and gravel that makes for easy walking. The difficulty comes in the elevation changes on some portions but nothing too bad. Plenty of plant diversity. We saw some prickly pears putting out fruit, which was neat, and the flowers were starting to appear. Recent rain made for mud on some portions but the good trail bed limited the problems here. Solitude was less than usual because we walked during an organized event (www.ava.org); usually there are few people on the trails. There are a lot of trails and plenty of distance.

Decent hike

This was a pleasant hike. I only met one other person. The length was nice for a short afternoon hike. Trails are easy to follow, well marked, and not too hard on the feet. Some places were still wet from rain earlier in the week. The trail crosses creek beds at points, often without a bridge or any other help. Some moderate to steep ascents, but they are brief. Several points to stop to see the lake, picnic, hit the bathroom, etc. Overall, pretty good.
