This is a generally flat hike that you can make as long or as short as you like. There are runners, walkers, mountain bikers, horse riders and people of all sorts on this shady and sunny walk. The trails are well maintained and marked. You can stay on the main drag or jog off on the single lane trails that always eventually meet up with the two main trails.

Husband and I took our 1 year old. It was a beautiful clear day! Everything was so green and beautiful. Lots of different trails if you want to explore. No major inclines. I'm glad we didn't try to bring our jogging stroller. Baby hiking pack is best if you take a small one. Bring water and snacks it's 7 miles round trip if you hit the waterfall. Waterfall is super high traffic on the weekends. Beautiful views near waterfall. Recommend shoes with traction as there is lots of loose sand and rock.
