*Distance of each trail or path is approximate. Madrone Trail distance is the full length of the trail since you start and finish at the trail head. All other trails have separate start and end locations unless you do a round trip.

++Canyon Dam is NOT a trail or part of the trails in Overlook Park. It is an access point for service by employees and contractors. We allow limited foot traffice access. If we feel continued access to the crest of the dam may put the safety of the dam or our neighbors at risk, then we can remove at anytime all access to the dam without without prior notice to the public.

 

BE AWARE OF THE WEATHER!

Trail condition change with the weather.

Wet stone and mud can become very slippery to bikes, feet and horses.

Some trails are shut down in bad weather to keep you safe and to reduce erosion and rutting.

Use sound judgment when deciding if the weather is good for the trail you are about to venture down.

 

 

Basic Trail Etiquette For ALL Trails:

Bikers yield to Hikers and Equestrian.

Hikers yield to Equestrian.

Equestrian keeps horse under control.

 

 

While enjoying a hike along the trails, remember that many of the trails are near water and can become a hazard very quickly.

Please be aware of your surroundings while hiking, biking or horse back riding on the trails.

Always have a plan and let someone know where you are going.

We want you to return home alive and well after a great day in the sun.
