overall beautiful trail! not really anywhere to rest except the begining, but very quiet and peaceful. During the 3 mile hike we only encountered 2 families at the begining and 1 couple mod hike. the setting is Forest type. in the begining we were able to venture off trail to the river and splash a bit. it was a side trail that ended up at the water. 5 star rating from us!

Really good trail. Completely in the shade. About half of the trail is rocky and could be considered a moderate level. The other half is definitely an easy level. Very few people at 9 AM on a Saturday morning. Would definitely do this trail again

Fantastic trail within KC area. Easy terrain to walk and navigate. Tree coverage the entire route keeps the sun away.

FYI I don't believe mountain bikes are allowed on this trail, they have a sign near the trailhead that says so. It is quite a nice trail very popular for walking your dog

Had a wonderful time with family. Kids splashed in creek and views along path of lake were beautiful as was the sound of running water in creek.

Lightly trafficked but well maintained. Well defined trail, but doesn’t exactly match the trail on here. Probably because it was redone in 2018. Multiple loops and byways to the roads to create your own adventure. Supposedly connects to the off leash dog park, which was my plan, but I couldn’t find the connecting path, or maybe they removed it. Idk. I imagine this would be a great trail to train for longer trips carrying a full pack as the terrain is rocky with elevation changes, but there is easy access to the roads at several points if you need to get out. Would definitely recommend!
