Beautiful trail. But, the best treat - - saw two pairs of American Bald Eagles doing a ballet overhead. When I got lower by the creek, one large Male Eagle was perched in a tree. What a site to behold! Fantastic hike and great way to spend a winter morning in late January.

Love this park because it is never busy! The start/end is a bit steep, but you can drive down to the parking lot if that's an issue for you. Most people have their (well-behaved) dogs off leash.

Excellent hike thru the woods that ends at the creek. Good place for my dog to romp around. Fallen tree blocked early part of the trail as of 5/30/17 but perfectly maintained thereafter.

Unexpectedly beautiful park in the center of a prominent neighborhood. Park has great moderate trails and a beautiful creek! We hiked all 4trails (blue, green, red, orange), red and green dead end, but blue and orange are great there and backs. 5stars!
