The hike is easy and the trail is very clean and obvious. Was hoping for something a bit more challenging. You can't walk around the "castle" or anything, so don't get your hopes up. Not a bad hike for families, I just had different expectations based off of some of the pictures.

An easy, family friendly hike, It follows the creek and you get to see a castle near the turnaround!

Short and super-easy. Not much scenery. Although good for little kids; the trail runs alongside the shallow creek with plenty of creek-stomping opportunities. One flat rock-scaling opportunity about 2/3 of the way through the out-trip. Cool private castle at the turnabout. Good picnicking sites. BTW, the first photo in the album is NOT from this hike.

Easy and quick hiking trail. Definitely recommend for families trying to get out of the house. Did a morning hike with my husband and son, there were a lot of people out but it wasn't overly crowded. Be mindful of bikers, there were plenty of them. Lots of places to have a picnic.

Nice, easy trail that's suitable for all ages and abilities. But quite busy with mountain bikers.

Did this trail today with a friend and her young dog. Lovely scenery, great for all skill levels, moderately busy on the weekdays, but I could see it getting too crowded during the weekends. I noticed many silent bikers, so be mindful of them.
