I can't believe I lived a mile from this hike for 5 years and never even knew it was there! We had a great time even though it was shorter than we would have wanted. There seem to be some side trails that you can take to extend the length but we didn't know about them until later.  Dogs can go off leash here so I wouldn't recommend this hike if you have a dog phobia. Our dogs LOVED the creek area and the water was so pretty that I very nearly jumped in too.  We came here the day after a hard rain and the trail was super muddy to the point were the bikers had to walk much of the way. shoes were thick with mud by the time we were done. Overall it was a great time and I would definitely recommend this hike .
