This was a beautiful trail me and my dog walked on a Saturday morning. It was very quiet and had a beautiful view towards the end

So green and beautiful. Loved the waterfall. Not super easy to find the path, but worth the hassle! Wonderful

I love it here. Very easy walk with dogs. Not very busy most of the time. Parts of the year the photographers show up and take over the bridges and leave trash. You don't realize how beautiful this park is until you take a few pics and look at them later. I love trees and this park has gorgeous trees.

This was an enjoyable experience overall. The dirt trail isn’t visibly marked in Fall due to foliage, but the markers that are there are washed off and I only noticed them on the bridges. They’re spray painted. If you’re starting with the bathrooms on your right, stay on the paved trail even though it goes through someone’s driveway. It’s a weird set up but it’ll lead you to the rest of the park. I imagine these homeowners are aware of that. It’s an easy/fast hike for anyone trying to get fresh air or recovering from slow winter months inactivity. It’s a great trail for running for weekday mornings or recovery. I don’t recommend it for elderly people to go without a friend as there are gravel sections or parts that are washed in deep due to water erosion. Could easily trip. I don’t recommend bikes on it unless they’re mountain or cross bikes but with an experienced rider. The bathrooms didn’t have toilet paper, BYOTP. I’m under the impression it’s a pretty desolate area besides the private properties so lock your car/bikes, don’t leave your children alone as they could also easily trip and fall in the water or retention pond there. Looks like it’ll be an awesome spot for picnics or playing with your dogs in the early fall/spring/summer time.

Ok walk. Nothing really special.

Pretty. Nice for quick bit of fresh air. Not a long hike in nature.

Trail not marked. Ended up on private property, and never made the complete loop.

Don’t recommend this trail.

Very cute park for a nice walk and to sight see a little bit and explore. Lots of little hills though but we didn’t mind. Fairly easy trail.

Not very clearly marked. Did like the fact that we had it all to ourselves.

Bathrooms are locked, other than that 5 stars. Huge area on a rolling green hillside. Perfect for picnic, dog walk. Very peaceful, and you will not be bothered. I often set up my hammock near the shoals and enjoy a nap.
