The trail was great. Only the small part of the parking lot is being used and you need to show your license to prove that you are a Fairfield resident. Because of COVID the park is no longer open to everyone.

as of May 1st, main parking lot is open at 10am for fairfield residents. dogs must be leashed until further notice. wonderful trails with lots of options to make hike longer or shorter.

Trail marked decent. I followed the yellow markings through out the trail. Sometimes, I got lost and traced my steps. Trash around the water falls and Cascade. Saw the bridge as well-very beautiful. Peaceful hike. 5-20% gradation on trail.

The loop that is marked on this has a short portion that is steep with lots of rocks and roots, but it can easily be avoided if you wish to stay on flatter terrain. it's a fairly short portion though, easily navigated by young kids. lots of dogs on this trail, almost all off leash.
