Pretty easy trail. Dogs are allowed to be off leash, so be wary if you have a dog who isn't as friendly.

Went here today with the bf. It's our first hike after a year hiatus. It's a good beginner trail. Just be aware that there's a span of uphill. I like that we started from the trail head by the apartment since we got through the uphill first as opposed to last. There's barely any water in the creek; probably because it's summer.

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.
