Good local hike/walk, some nice views and a fairly well maintained trail. Trails exist on both sides of the train tracks that run through the center. Both sides are probably about 2 miles or so with many side paths. This trail is bike friendly.
It was a little muddy. The trail is not exact and at the half way point it was tough to navigate but it was still fun!!
Great small trail and very friendly for beginners who want to get out of the house. Bringing a 4 legged friend makes it even that more enjoyable. Can get a bit on the muddy and slippery side at times but still fun.
we kindly lost in the trail, but find our way out. no sign anywhere.
Nice hike, but very confusing even following the trail app. map...Depending on which side of the Gulch you hike you'll get a better work out if you enter at the dog park (West side of the Gulch) We actually followed the wrong trail which added another mile to this hike. Well maintained, enough parking, dog friendly, peaceful stream with small waterfall. Great for all skill levels.
Very short trail but nice if you have kiddos.
Trail is not marked at all. So many trails intersecting. If you have unlimited time to explore this is an ok trail. However if you have some time constraints i do not recommend this trail.
You can easily get lost, it's not an actual loop, but you can easily find your way back too. It was fun finding my way back. I ran most, walked some when the trails got narrow. Very peaceful, I saw 3 other people my entire time there on the trails (2 hours). I'll definitely be back for a nice weekday night.
You could easily get lost in these trails. We walked along the railroads to the top and tried to cut over to the trail, but kept going down paths that ended it seemed. Otherwise beautiful place and we only saw 4 other people the whole time. Very dog friendly
Fun for the kids not very difficult
Good trail for a quick, but good workout just steps away from city life! When at the top you get a great view of the piglet sound. Throughout the hike you hear the little stream down below! Like I said great workout! Lots of ups!
