Pretty narrow and overgrown. Also, I went on a very humid day (my fault) and the flies were in full effect. I won't hike this trail again.

Great trail! Definitely one that can be done in an afternoon and enjoyed. Not that hard, some spots a little sketchy, walking across the creek and walking on the edge of a hill. Moderatly kid friendly but mostly for teens to adults. No parking at all, its in the middle of an industrial park so if you feel like parking in their lots you may. Parts of the trail are overrun and can get slightly confusing on which path to take. Would highly recommend, plus there are plenty of restaurants down the road to get a bite to eat after.

Great trail! A little narrow and overgrown, but otherwise it was nice. The waterfall was pretty refreshing, we went for a lil dip!

Great trail, perfect for families!! Trail begins at blue "Orchard Glen" sign, we parked in the business parking lot at the end of Barnes Street.
