Ran here again today (I often do). I ran the "Windy Trail" and the BMX Trail". Those trails are for pedestrians as well as bikers, but just be courteous and conscientious to bikers- some come to the park in order to really go fast and furious on the trails, and they are designed for bikes. In fact, at the back part of the "BMX Trail", there is a small but good BMX course. Lots of jumps close to one another. But you can run/hike/bike the trail itself without getting on the BXM course.

Anyway, all that said, I just really like these trails at this park. I like the ups and downs and twists and turns of bike trails, keep's one on their toes.

Short nice trail, very rocky on a short area. Very relaxing.

I give the whole trail system itself a four: it is an intricate system of trails, but it lacks the "oomph" of more rugged trails. But hey, family and novice friendly is good too. Hikers, bikers, trail runners, casual strollers- this park has it all. Parking is more than adequate. But the only restroom I can usually find is a porta-potty :(

About half the trails are moderately flat, and soft dirt. There's one concrete trail that goes out of the park, it's pretty nice. The rest of the trails are hard dirt from the bikers, and those trails got the really fun stuff.

On the bike trails, you got ups and down, but even more so: twists and turns and lots of intersecting trails- easy to get turned around in this place; lots of trails to explore. And the creek itself is wonderful. Very pretty with a nice variety of terrain- some parts of the creek are surrounded buy lots of plants, some parts by steep cliffs, others by a lot of rock, etc. It's fun to try and run the creek itself, if you don't mind getting wet.

There are no large hills which is a bummer, and very few places with lots of rock. There are lots of people with dogs, and come later in the day and expect to see scores and scores of bikers- if you're a biker yourself, this place is pretty good for beginners and intermediate. All in all, this gets a four instead of a three: I say three because, really, for a trail runner like me, it lacks a few things. But because of the amount of trails, and thus the amount of time you could spend here just exploring the trails, and the fact that it accommodates bikers and hikers and runners and, well, just about everyone, it definitely earns that extra star.

very intricate multi set of trails. I spent 2 hour exploring and hiking the trails. you have to watch the bikers but well worth the hike.
