Nice trail system, lots of options for routes so you can visit frequently and experience a different trail/route each time. Old paper mill is really neat, you can access the river there which my dog loves. The bike trails connect all the way to powers landing for those who might like a longer hike/ride. Beware of the cyclist though, the bike trail changes direction based on day of the week and there are some steep straight aways on which you might see a cyclist flying toward you. There are also separate non bike trails which I learned to stick to, especially on weekends. Can be easy to moderate, depending on the routes you choose. The abundant signage helps you tailor your adventure to suite your needs.
Great escape so close to the city-Awesome that this is right in my backyard! (Not literally).

I got lost here and it's not that big. The maps have been tampered with and need to be replaced. There is a nice pond in the middle to relax on.

Not a big fan of urban hikes but this one is pretty cool and I had the afternoon off. The trails don't offer views (to be fair some of the creek) more for locals running and mountain biking. FYI if you follow the AllTrails map you're going to be on trails that are closed for erosion control and rejuvenation. The ruins are worth the trip, very little trash and no graffiti. Neat place to take kids, definitely in the warmer months with the shallow creek. If you're going on the weekend I would recommend getting there early. I was there early afternoon on a Tuesday in January and the lot was over half full.
