I enjoyed this trail very much. yes you are next to a high class neghborhood for a couple of parts of the trail but overall its very secluded. I enjoyed the fact that this park has some elevations and short hill climbs. its been perfect for getting out and getting in shape. I could see some of these trails being flooded in the wet seasons.
The trail for the Eastgate Connection is somewhat confusing with all the different routes to take, but it was quite enjoyable with the bumpy road that took us through the woods. The only thing I did not like about this trail was that it was right next to a very high class neighborhood, and I would have enjoyed it more if it was more isolated. Otherwise, it's a nice, not too long trail.
