Great trail! Took the family on this easy hike through the woods and had a great time. Not for strollers, but perfect for young kids. Lots of nature to enjoy.

Easy trail and a nice hike. Shaded for most of the trail, so a good one for a hot day. We clocked it on our GPS and it was only 2.1 miles long, starting at the visitor center.

Nice shady trail for a short hike, even on a super hot day like today. Has nice view of the creek, saw some does with their babies splashing around in it. Very peaceful & quiet. Would definately hike this area again for a quick, easy get-away.
