This is our second time on this trail. We've really enjoyed it both times.

There are quite a few creek crossings and the water was high enough that our corgi got his paws and undercarriage pretty wet. It was still very easy for us to stay out ot the water though.

We started at the playscape and hiked to the end of all the branches of the trail, which is really well marked, to get in a 3 mile hike.

The trail is very scenic at times with rock cliffs and tiny waterfalls in a few places. There were a lot of people at the playscape area and a few hikers on the trail, but overall it's pretty quiet out there in the middle of the suburbs.
