Great walk for kids and families. Only downside (for me) was the amount of cyclists at times had near accidents of almost being run down by cyclist riding a bit fast in my opinion around corners and through more narrow areas of the trail. That part made the site seeing part of it a bit less enjoyable because you're always checking behind your back for oncoming cyclists. Lots of wildflowers and bird watching opportunities. The redwood grove was a great escape to the heat. Being in the grove you literally feel like it's 10 degrees cooler. There's benches to sit and rest a moment in the grove.

I love this trail! I do it every Sunday with my dog Cleo. She and I start on the backside by the Redwoods off of Wabash and do the whole trek. We cross over to the dam through the dirt ravine, walk across the dam, then trek through Coyote Creek to the park (yes, they do have wild coyotes there). After walking through the park, we end up by the northeast trail entrance and loop back to the Redwoods, then back to Wabash. It's about 10,000 steps depending on how much Cleo sniffs around. Lots of waterfowl by the lake

Easy walk to a small redwood grove. Good trail to walk your dog.
