We hike the Indian Joe Creek Trailhead in middle of November. The scenery was beautiful.

Nice trail with the creeks and the rocks to scramble through a bit on the creeks. Kids would enjoy this one.

Trail was a great hike. All the creeks we pass threw keep my 3year old interested. lots of beautiful Oak trees so their lots of shade too.

Pretty. Uphill, but not too hard. Good calf workout! The water along the trail was really pretty and there were some Falls. The view is gorgeous

Very nice trail with nice vistas. the parking lots were packed with people and yet the park was quiet and felt empty.

i love this trail, but no signal here so I cannot record my path. Not much flowers, but very green

Very easy hike...the waterfall is lovely although very little water due to the drought

Good short distance hike. Nice scenery! Apparently, there was mountain lion sightings. All we saw were what looked like huge paw prints.

Nice flat trail that is good for kids. My son and I saw to rattlesnakes together on this trail.

This place was amazing! I absolutely loved it. We went in early January when it was chill but not cold and it was beautiful. There was a creek alongside one of the paths (water was super cold!), and the others went uphill to open patches of grass with cows grazing which were peaceful to walk through. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, there were many trails aside from this one and I went on the Shady Glen loop which had a cute little bridge on it.
