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!

Good hike to take kids :)

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.
