Awesome trail. I did the hidden falls, n. Legacy, and s. Legacy in about 3.5 hours. Not a difficult trail at all but rather long. I think it is a total of 9 miles from car around loop and back to car. There are a couple nice water falls along the way and plenty of maps so you cant get lost. Although rarely rarely seen, They say mountain lions are along the trail so bring a weapon just in case. Happy trails!

This is a service road once you get down the main hill. Lots of people.
More of a very short walk.

Check your dogs for ticks! Never had a problem with either of mine, but found 3 ticks and a flea after this hike!

This trail starts out okay, but then is basically a service road. It has very little shade and not many sites. There is really no point to take this trail unless you are just trying to get exercise and increase mileage. Once we got to the North Legacy Way, we went ahead and took the Creekside trail, that was much nicer, it has lots of shade and follows the creek. We didn't come across ANYONE, even though the falls that day was PACKED. I would definitely hit the falls trail FIRST, early in the morning, before it gets so crowded, then branch off and take the other trails around the area.
