I was suprised at the scenery and solitude of this hike. The River Trail parallels the Colorado River. I parked just ouside the fence. I hiked to the left along side the large man made ponds .. lots of nice ducks .. I kept going South on the narrow road to the River Trail trailhead. This tail is 3 miles each way, 6 total. The first mile has more dense trees. Then there is an interesting huge greenhouse with algae ponds. From here going West was when the hike got even better. To the right of the trail is a large natural pond with lots of birds. The trail curves some .. after about 1 1/2 miles the jeep road trail has a 'Y'. The right follows the power lines and left is very scenic. Lots of river views. On a sunny Saturday only saw 3 other people. Note: this park is closed at sunset with gate locked.
Warning: this park is part of a sewage treatment facility. I started hike north edge of pond. Signs warned of "digestive gasses - no smoking" There was a strong breeze and I started to get sick from the gasses. If you drive south of pond and park there are trails south of the ponds that don't have the odors. Very few views of river. Trail faily plain. Nice solitude though. Noise from planes and highways nearby.
