great trail, well marked and easy to follow. dog had a blast! easy parking, even had a toilet in the beginning of the trail.
The only reason why this is getting 4 stars is because there wasn't really anything special to see here... If you're looking for scenery this is probably not the place for you.

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!
