Nice easy gravel trail. Part of the Salt Creek Greenway Trail. Offers lakes and wooded areas. Park with picnic areas and restroom facilities.
It is nice for a walk or run, great for my stroller, you can go much further than the loop if you want. Dogs allowed, but there is only shade on one half of it.
It is short and flat but it was peace and quiet despite it is close to a high way. It was nice to relax and walk around the lakes after a long drive or long day's work.
I love Cricket Creek because it's close to home for me.
The primary trail is asphalt - this is the trail around the 3 ponds. This trail is good for street biking, walking, running. It's scenic and a pleasurable loop even though it is in a congested area at RT 83 and North Avenue. Even so, the water views, and the connection of this trail to the Salt Creek Trail make it pretty nice overall.
The trail connects with the Salt Creek Trail at both the north and south entrances to Cricket Creek. So whereas this trail is only 2.2 miles it's connected into a much larger trail that provides a much more satisfying riding distance and duration. See Salt Creek Trail for more details
