Great hike. Moderate hike don't miss the waterfall trail. Very dry Bc of drought, however still a site to see and a nice incline to hike. Well marked trail.

Fabulous hike in the woods - lovely outlook and view of ravine. Went early in the morning - what a great start to the day.

This is an easy walk between the woods. There are not open spaces. There's no water and no maps. The entrance closes at 5:00pm

Nice easy out and back. Shaded the entire way. Pretty walk along the river and out to the reservoir. Good for young kids. Probably great in the spring when water is really running.

Depends on how high the water is. Nice walk through the woods but totally different when water is low and looks like a moonscape

Great hike, nice variety of accents and descents. We took the RED trail, a 4 mile loop, that passed a quartz quarry, and a stream. Will definitely go back.

This is a great trail for the a weekend warrior like me. It was relatively flat and secluded. A prefect weekend retreat.

Went on this trail over the 4th of July weekend this year, really enjoyed it, regardless of its ease. I took the red trail, which is maybe a little more challenging than the blue trail. The quartz quarry was a nice extra find.

A good easy hike for kids especially the blue trail.

Decent hike and not too much traffic. Pretty flat and not much of a challenge, but pretty dense forest, so it's a peaceful hike.

Definitely well marked trails and a nice easy stroll. Very nice for families. Wish I could have brought my dog along. Waterfall was nice and the area was mainly flat with little uphills and downhills at times. Overall a nice walk.

I thought it was a great trail. Not too challenging, and some interesting sights, like the quarry, the tiny waterfall and other waterways.
