It's my go-to for out-of-towners wanting to go for a hike.

In a mile and a half, you get stream, meadow, woodland, and rocky outcropping. The out of towners get a "hike" experience, without anyone getting too winded.

Then to finish things off, there's places to go eat/drink at 5-10 min drive up or down the canyon.

Went on a warm afternoon in February. Very easy and relaxing trail. Only saw two other people. Very icy in some spots. Use Crampons for sure at this time of year.

The park breaks off into a few trails & the signage gets a bit confusing we ended up on the long loop for Bear Creek & off of Bruins but overall loved it. Great place to take the family for a picnic & splashing in the creek

Needed an easy hike to do with my dog who broke her foot and this hike was perfect. Easy, beautiful, and well maintained!

Good little hike with uphill first, both sun and shade. Can still hear highway though. Great for wildflowers.

Easy trail, beautiful scenery and kid friendly! It can be combined with other trails in the park for a longer hike.

This was a beautiful little trail. It's easy, but you still get a good workout on the way up. Lots of shade and beautiful weather. I will definitely be back! The only downside is that you can still see/hear the highway from the trail, but if that doesn't bother you then this is a perfect and easy hike.

Great easy trail to bring out-of-towners.

Good variety of scenery in a compact package, and just enough elevation change so people feel like "I hiked."

A very well maintained and relatively easy trail suitable for all skill levels, even with the minor elevation gain. Good variety of wildflowers and a nice view of the surrounding mountains and valley below.

Fair amount of road noise from Bear Creek, but very pretty and secluded earlier in the morning or later in the evening.

Hiked with two children, ages 4 & 5. Great hike, with some slopes that were challenging enough for little legs! Parking lot was blocked by 10:30. Arrive early!

This place was very busy on Memorial Day, but once you get about .2 miles away from the parking lot the crowd disbursed. This is not a challenging hike, but is very pretty.

Excellent family hike. We went on Memorial Day, so were prepared for a lot of people. And while busy, it never felt overcrowded. Highlight was coming across a four foot bull snake crossing the trail, kids loved it.
