Beautiful trail. Gorgeous scenic views. One part of the trail has a steep incline that makes the hike more of a workout, which is awesome!! It's not that difficult. Maybe took about 2 hours, but we stopped and sat on one of the benches. Great hike!

Beautiful but uphill the whole way out, so tougher for beginning runners.

Nice easy hike with great scenery. Good hike for the family and the dogs too.
Running water and lush trees makes this a perfect day hike that is well worth the short drive.

Nice walk. It gets steeper the further you go in. Dogs are not required to be on leash, but must be under command according to the sign. From what I encountered, half the dogs were on leash and half were not.

Really nice trail. Very kid-friendly. The slope is generally nice and easy and there's lots of shade.

One thing to note: this trail does not require dogs to be on-leash. 50' in to the trailhead if you're starting from the apartment complex end, there's a sign that clear says it's a dogs-off-leash trail and then it has some rules about dogs needing to reply to voice commands.

Not a huge deal, but wanted to put that out there.
