I went hiking here with my 2 kids and dog (who remained on leash). I knew going that it was off leash, however probably won't go back until my kids are older. Too many owners let their dogs run too far away from them... Felt a little unsafe. Markers are unclear after 1.25 miles. It was shady but I'm sure I saw more dogs than people, if you are looking for a fun spot with your 4legged friend, by all means go but look out for poop. Friday midmorning hike.
Turkey Creek is a great place to take your dogs for off leash play in the hot weather months. Full Shade and lots of water. Wear Waterproof Tennis shoes or sandals. The trail crosses Turkey Creek 18 times one way. The creek bed is rocky but the trail is mostly dirt.
