Walked this trail this morning from 10:15-11:45. My dog and I walked from Creekside trail head to the middle of the dam. It was a pleasant walk with nice shade and nice people. They provide poop bags but not so many garbage cans. There are a lot of emergency call boxes if something should happen. There were quite a few bikers but were good about calling out their position. Bring your own water and wear sunscreen. There is shade but for long streaches you'll be exposed to direct sun. Parts of the trail run parralles to CR 174 so you'll not feel very secluded but the scenery will compensate for the traffic noise. I look forward to walking my dog there again soon!
