Surprisingly nice trail! Lots of flowers by the stream and decent shade on half the trail. We started from the cul-de-sac as shown within the private Forest Highlands community, but you can also start by branching off the Griffith Springs trail loop at the north end. If starting in Forrest Highlands park up high on the main road near the overpass then walk down the road to a pump house. Cut under the road and go through the tunnel... super cool for kids! Trial hops back and forth over a small stream but wasn't too muddy.
