Traverses most of the floor of the park valley. Great walk if you're aiming to just relax. Beautiful foliage. Lots of park visitors.

Simple hike, not too steep for a long period and there are benches. bring water, it's getting warm out!

An easy, fun walk with lots to see. Our 4 year old had a lot of fun finding sticks and playing in the tiny creek at the end of the trail. We had our 18 month old in a kid backpack, but could have easily done it with a stroller.

Best of both worlds - shady trees, a peaceful flowing creek...and then a somewhat intense hike up hill to the top. Pretty nice views.
