This was perfect for what I was looking for for my kids and me. It was a trail that was jogging stroller friendly, wasn’t too long, and wasn’t right next to the water. Shady, tons of trees and rocks to climb, and lots of sand for them to dig and play in. There was some tagging and graffiti on the rocks, but overall it was pretty and we had great weather.

Decent to take your kids too, short, too much graffiti for my liking. If you are going it’s better to hike the river, much nicer. Go in the winter, no one will be there

It was pretty crummy as far as graffiti the picnic area was nice an baseball field aswell, used it to fly kites. Not bad for family bbq's go early to get a great location.

My kids really enjoy this trail close to home with rocks to climb over and a river along side. I am less than pleased to see the graffiti all over the rocks and trees. It's a shame whoever is collecting the $5 entry fee isn't putting that money towards keeping the trail from looking trashy

The actual trail was extremely muddy and not walkable but the road was great. Took the dogs and they loved the river.

Beautiful area in February. Everything is nice and green. Trail was flooded due to recent rain but can still be walked. Lots of wildlife including birds, squirrels, and we found a turtle too!

Gates are locked. You can park and walked in though. Trial was mostly flooded but manageable. Quick and easy. More of a walk then a hike. Great for kids.
