went to hike a few days ago this place is awsome and definitely worth going to. There many trails here if you stay on the main trail its not hard pretty average but if you take some of the other ones they can get difficult beautiful place to hike though.

I loved it

Did this hike yesterday, started at 9 and ended at 12. It rained off and on so parts of the trail were muddy which made it difficult to keep my footing. Would definitely do this hike again, just next time I'll make sure it's dry. Some of the trails dead end so make sure that you pay attention to the map. Also the address on this website leads you to a residential neighborhood so that was also confusing. Dreaded hill is a great trail if you're looking for little over a mile of pure incline.

Great hike! We decided to take the Billy Goat trail and proved to be a little to hard for my 4 year old son but my 10 year old blew through it. A lot of friendly people throught these trails. All and all we had a great time and stopped and ate lunch at the picinic benches as the little stream rolled by.

100% plan on coming back! There's great views to be had here and different trails to explore. We even saw a few deer on a nearby hill. If you're expecting something unpopular, this is not the trail for you. There was a good amount of hikers and bikers on the main trail with less and less as you go on. Parking is $3. Totally worth it!
