Really steep with tons of loose rocks at the beginning and ends of the trail, but the waterfall in the middle was worth it. I went after some rainfall and the water levels were too high to cross so we extended the loop up the trail to cross at a bridge. Lots of mountain bikers, they might spook your dog.

The short cut back was real steep and muddy because of the rain but that was fun. Little river view was peaceful.

Wasn’t able to cross at the waterfall like it said so we had to go the long way! Good hike though.

Didn’t follow the route well and ended up at a 4.2 mile loop somehow. It was crowded but everyone had masks and my dog enjoyed it. Kid friendly and the water areas were pretty. A lot of bikes and horse

More people than I'd hoped for but I found some secluded spots. Added a few miles on both the N and S trails so it was around 7 miles. The areas near the creek were gorgeous. Will do again.

Nice, flat trail for exercising or an easy walk. Good for dogs or kids. Not much for views but there’s a small creek running the length of the loop & a small “waterfall”.
