Beautiful well marked trails with just enough elevation change to make it a good workout. Plenty of parking and we didn't run into another person.

Nice trail. Definitely start on the Valentine Vista trail then finish with the out-back. Nice diversity of terrain. Very peaceful creek-side finish to the hike.

Pros
Dog friendly, shaded for most of the out and back Moore Creek Trail, 5 creek crossings with a shallow "pool" and small waterfall at the end, plentiful parking with a port-a-potty at trailhead, steep parts were short, lightly trafficked. Wider trail for a good portion of it, and not much poison oak.

Cons
Dog got two ticks even on leash the whole way and on trail the whole time--and not walking through any brush (which was a tad surprising but we are out of doors, so it was fine).
some single track with small bunches/bushes of poison oak so be mindful. not a pool at the end--more like one foot deep areas in the creek (unless i missed it).

all in all, a really wonderful hike!
