I would give 5 stars if people didn't let their dogs poo all over the trail without picking it up. Broken glass and other hazardous debris is often on the trails as well. Cars get broken into in the parking lot and on the roadside, don't leave any valuables, purses, backpacks ETC in your car.
Used to be an awesome secluded place to hike before they opened it up to the public. Now all you see is garbage in the water and carvings of people's names in the old oak trees. Wild life used to be plentiful ( deer, turkey, coyotes, squirrels ) until the destructive people showed up and ruined the peace and tranquility of a once true mini paradise.
Joe R. on Dry Creek Trail
Great level trail approximately 4 miles. Can use multiuse path that has lots of people walking and running and biking or you can use the creekside trail which is less travelled. Definitely an easy trail.
We have been looking for short trips to introduce our daughter (one year old) to hiking. This trail was quiet and provided a short but scenic hike to help get her (and me) used to her hiking backpack. We even saw a big turtle up from the creek along the path. A nice trail, well maintained.
The foot trail is pretty nice but when I went, although there was a paved bike trail right next to it, nearly every cyclist used the foot trail. The foot trail is rather narrow so unless you want to be run over by bikes, you have to stand/walk in the weeds to let them pass. It was very frustrating as there were a lot of cyclists that day. I will not return.
I been waling my dogs on this trail for about three years. I'd say about 1/10th of the time I've taken the trail I have had Bkbbarts experience. About 1/3 of the time I will encounter 1 - 3 bikes. Almost 2/3rds of the time I don't encounter any bikes. This is usually a very peaceful trail. It's a very easy trail and a great place to unwind after work.
