The first part of the trail follows Moonridge trail looking down upon Indian Creek. The trail then drops down steeply into an area if volcanic rock with a spectacular 70 foot waterfall plunging into a large pool. The return leg of the loop is an easy meandering trail along the banks of Indian creek, with a number of lovely picnic spots along the way. You will be surprised that there is such a nice setting amongst the suburban sprawl.

NOT SUITABLE FOR ROAD BIKE. I've hiked this trail before and it is pretty rugged including some small water crossings. I was surprised when looking for a road bike path that this was the first result near me!

Don't be afraid to use the additional parking area. From there it's .1 of a mile to the trail.

Easy hike with nice falls at the end. Very little shade so bring sunblock and a baseball cap. If you bring your dog, bring plenty of water.
