Enjoyed the trail. Basically a walk around the various grass fields. No real ground guidance so we kept the GPS open to stay on the prescribed route. Partial shade and we crossed the clear stream several times to keep the doggies hydrated. Enjoyed the hike as a change to normal cross-country hiking.

Not a bad hike! Definitely going back and trying other paths. Didn’t quite follow the exact trail, but found some cool spots. There is disc golf and a huge open field with a sort of obstacle course. There are maps available and watering stations. Also, garbage cans along the hike, so please discard yours trash! There are stretches on the hike that provide no shade. Prepare accordingly!

Had a fantastic time! Man they have done so much sense the last time I came. Lots of new trails. Really well maintained. Porta potty‘s at many different locations. Picnic table’s at a number of areas. Benches all over the place to rest. This place is fantastic now. It’s a must try if you are in the area. I actually did all the trails in one day. Loads of fun!

Excellent training trail for cardio! Flat everywhere, grassy, nothing challenging! Seen lots of people walking their pups! Disc golf seems to be popular there, saw multiple groups!! Overall I loved this because it was a nice calm area and I’m trying to improve my cardio ha. Didn’t have to worry about breaking an ankle on rocks or uneven terrain. Must of had some sort of athletic event because some courses were still set up! Could spend hours there either walking or sitting on a blanket with a book.

Nice flat trail, mostly shady, with a couple creek crossings by bridge or boardwalk, but might get feet muddy in a couple places after rains. Two 18 hole frisbee golf courses adjacent to trail. Water pump on main trail is great for thirsty dogs. Park also has kayak launch to Graham Creek and Wolf Bay.
