Multi-Use Trail - Great place to run long runs with amazing views of the creek.

Gets better and better each year.

enjoyed this hike but there were a couple of confusing spots where I didn't know witch path to take. there are quite a few steep hills that are riddled with rocks and branches so people with joint issues or plantar fasciitis be aware that you'll be sore later. nice creek views here and there, nature and wildlife surround you most of the time. all in all I enjoyed myself and will very likely return in the near future.

Lovely trail with a creek view toward the beginning. there are a couple of sections where you may question where to turn but you'll be fine as long as you stay on the trail. I especially love that there's a bathroom available halfway through the hike because I like to hydrate.

It was a nice, quiet hike. More hilly than I expected. A few of the climbs were steep enough to have me bent over to maintain balance, which was fun. Started on the yellow and got lost early on, ending on the white trail.

Bring bug spray! Yellow, white, and blue trails are all narrow dirt paths.
