John C. Phelps Trail Reviews

I hiked this trail immediately after the Santa Fe Trestle Trail and it didn't hold up to what I had already enjoyed there. The trail consists of a dirt path amongst trees east of the parking area and a blacktop path passing through Robert Oren Park to the west. The park and road were packed with people playing / watching a soccer game going on. The playground was overrun with kids making a quiet hike an impossible task.

There was nothing overly scenic to stop and look at or take pictures of, and the neighborhood the trail is located in is, how shall I put it...less than optimal. If hiking this trail, buddy up, no matter the time of day, or day of the week.
