I love to go here, just be prepared to pay for parking and or walk to the place. It is such a popular place to go and visit.

Prefer Johnson's Pasture because there's less people, but the Wilderness Park is nice too. Very easy walk suitable for seniors and kids, last time we saw some wild deer on the hill. Fun.

I was looking for a cool place to run on my vacation and this place fit the bill. It has a challenging five mile loop up and down the mountain. I didn’t run the entire time because I was too busy taking pictures. The hike...More

Granted, we visited the park in late December 2017, after months of no rain. But even with some lusher landscapes, this is still a pretty exposed collection of trails on the south-facing mountains above Claremont. And with the lack of signage showing where the trails...More

Nice 6 mile loop. If you want a harder workout, take the trailhead that goes left. The left trail is steeper than the right trail. Bring your camera, snacks, plenty of water especially if it is summer time. And most importantly a flash light in...More

This is a 5 mile loop trail in the foothills. I'd call it a medium level trail with some pretty exerting spots and some truly gorgeous spots. If you go to the left, you get the dirt hill out of the way and you go...More

Get here early! As soon as it opens if you can! Check the schedule for time changes every month. If you get there later in the day make sure you have enough time to get back before the trail closes. They will cite you!! Parking...More

The wilderness park has a five mile loop trail that is not too bad even for someone like me, an overweight middle-aged out of shape frumpy person. It's a great way to get out even though you're still in Claremont.
