I live across the street and walk here regularly with my dog. This is a shorter trail, however, at one end there is another part of the trail that goes well behind a neighborhood. It adds on another 2km or so round trip. This trail is well taken care of and has a creek to wade in.

Trail is a nice little loop. Pretty simple. Easy parking. Easy to find.

Trail can be extended to be longer than shown in map here. Nothing very special, but a good hike with kids.

First to Review

Not much of a hike. It's a quarter-mile loop and you have to walk on the road on both ends to make the loop. There is a nice creek, and lots of signage marking the trees. There is also a turtle pond if you walk out of the parking lot towards Roswell Rd. I wouldn't go out of my way to hike here again.
