Very good trail for kids and dog; running creek, small waterfall, and great nature close to town.

Lots of LARGE downed trees blocking the trails. Otherwise, trails are very well marked.

Decided to check this place out after a decent rain. No big waterfalls or beautiful lookouts. But an overall excellent hike! Trail was a bit slippery in the rockier areas due to the rain. Saw a couple squirrels, small fish, and a woodpecker. An abundance of foliage and flowing water throughout. Surprisingly low traffic, given the ease of access to the location. My favorite trail of the few that I've hiked around Birmingham so far. Will definitely return.

Wow, so many rabbit trails. Not sure if it was just a bad GPS day, me not downloading the trail, or user error. Had a difficult time staying on this trail. However, I had a dandy of a work out. Paths are well beaten but not marked.

Can’t beat the convenience if you live in Vestavia. It’s a great spot to bring the family for a quick outing. There are also playing fields, a play area, and a library connected to the trails.

This trail is not marked & that would help but doable with the All Trails map. Good hike with 2 adults & kids 17, 8 & 6.

Great trail to get a quick hike in. It's not marked very well but following the well treaded paths will get you around the loop.
