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.

Enjoyable hike though I still find the signage confusing after hiking here five times. Deer flies were killer today! But no complaints, out in nature on a glorious day, while it was a steamy hot day (95) it was still cool and beautiful. No other hikers in sight.

I enjoyed this trail more than Butler. The description of 50 foot incline is a mistake. As a matter of fact the trail has 500 feet inclines and has some of the most beautiful scenery around. We saw lots of nature, including two grey heron, toads, a leaf frog, garden snakes, chipmunks and the like. There were old stone walls and grasslands in the middle of the woods that harken back to what once was. I would highly recommend this for a good workout and is nearly a 6 mile hike when you follow the outer trails. Loved this one!!!

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.
