Beautiful trail for running and walking. It can be a little muddy after the rain in some parts, but most of the time the trail is in great condition.

This was a beautiful hike with beautiful views. I am new to hiking, and was able to easily do the hike. Places to rest, and even a bathroom and off leash dog park!!

Amazing! Plenty of trails to follow and pretty easy to do! I love hiking, I recently discovered my passion for it, so exploring new parks and trials is my thing. I went in here and I had so much fun, trails are nice and quiet, so much beauty and the smell of the trees is great. There's a lot of spider webs though which is not my favorite but if you go later on the day you won't find any spider webs on the way, since I usually go around at 6:30 am.
