good first 3.5 miles with a walk on asphalt for the last mile.

Beautiful first 2 or 3 miles with nice views. Ended up walking the last mile or so on the road in the sun though.

pretty fun and easy hike.

Beautiful hike with lots of variety. About half was shaded, the other half exposed. Lots of wildlife including flogs and deer.

Beautiful trail, especially a few days after the rain with a strong stream in the creek. Other than a short stretch that was too steep for me to run up or down, moderate trail. Free parking on the street near trail head.

It is a beautiful hike, but many bikes on the main trail. we got lost for a little bit because the rain has washed away some mud, and plants are thick. overall, it is a fun hike

Nice variety of not too steep and level. During winter small brook to cross.

Very nice lightly moderate trail. Not many birds, but lots of bikes on this Saturday, but all well trained in trail etiquette. Very relaxing.

Always a good time coming down Spring Creek - look out for turkeys! Access the trail from Stonehedge Dr. as well, instead of Spring Lake.

Really gorgeous trail. Pretty secluded from other people.

Don't go if it's toasty out. There's very limited shade spots so it's direct sun. Make sure to wear sun screen!! Otherwise gorgeous trail absolutely loved it

Only strenuous for about 10-15 minutes then the trail flattens out for the rest of the hike. There's a beautiful view but it was ultimately a little underwhelming.

Trails weren't marked very clearly so we veered off course a bit.

Great views coming back down the canyon trail!

Trails are not clearly demarcated. At the Cobblestone and Orchard trail junction, it would help to have a trail sign indicating where Cobblestone trail continues. Otherwise a great activity.

Fun and beautiful trail with a lake at the end. Stunning views some uneven ground but overall a great trail. A bit muddy after lots of rain.

Beautiful trail. The end of it was on a fire road where I usually prefer dirt trails but a wonderful mild hike regardless.

Fun to ride up, one of the easiest to get up to the upper lake

I'm a rookie so the rock gardens were a challenge. Otherwise great with a beautiful little lake at the top!

I went hiking here with my 9 year old daughter the day after a light rain. It was mostly overcast. The trails had a few puddles, but were not muddy. We saw runners and bikers and a few other hikers. We saw deer, turkey, quail, newts, and many beautiful flowers. There is poison oak and poison ivy along side the trail; and mountain lions are known to be in the area. This trail has a pretty decent incline for the first mile or so and then a steep incline leaving the lake area, but there are plenty of benches and picnic tables for resting. An outhouse is located at the start and end of this trail. There is a fee to enter the park.
