There is a large parking lot. Says parking is $7 but no attendant day I was there and they do not take credit cards so bring cash and put it in an envelope. As for the trail, I ran from the entrance I followed Arroyo Valle Trail. Mainly concrete and open area. Very little to no shade. Ran past the footbridge all the way to a nearby regional park before running back on the Dry Creek trail which hugged the outside of the park. Some wine grape fields. Overall the Dry Creek trail was dirt with some stones. Perfect for a flat fast trail run.

Nice for families: great trail, beautiful views and plenty of wildlife.
We parked in the Wetmore lot ($7 parking fee) and had the kids hit the restroom facilities (flush toilets, well maintained) before hitting the paved, flat trail. The kids enjoyed the little "learning garden" where they could identify animal tracks and see native plant markers.
There are information stations at various points on the trail showing native species and animals, encouraging the kids to look for these along the path.
The trail had plenty of benches, some trash receptacles and distance markers on the pavement every quarter mile (starting at .25, then .5, .75, etc.) the kids enjoyed seeing how far we had gone.
There were more trails that went off the paved path, but we didn't explore them.
Overall, this is an easy, moderately populated trail. We passed bikers, runners, and hikers with their dogs during our visit. I would recommend this for people of all ages, and families with young kids.
