Arnold Rim Trail is well maintained, great for any day hike and in the middle of nature's splendor. Trails are well marked.

Nice tree lined trail for a relaxing walk, hiking or a run. Well marked. Dogs are allowed but I think on leash.

This trail is great in that you can go as far as you want with young family members in tow. While uphill we found it very do-able even for the inexperienced hiker.
