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.
