Short, easy trail. Some of it is paved and there are plaques along the way you can read about the environment. The trail goes along Taylor Creek and underground where you can look through a glass into the creek and see all the fish. Lots of tourists but a good trail for kids.

The trail was great except for the section that was closed due to repairs. We walked one way until the trail ended then back the other way. We all enjoyed the under water viewing area.

Trail is flooded for a bit due to amount of rain/snow the past season, but it's still a neat trail. In this short trail you will see stream, marsh, meadow, and forest environments, which is very cool. We arrived late, but you can also view the stream from under it from 9AM-4PM daily.
