Just finished hiking from Schrier Park to South Westnedge and back with our three grandkids (6,8 & 9). The kids loved the floating trail and with the water squirting up through the holes. Big hit. Schrier is a great place at the end of the hike to have a picnic also.

Trail was a fun idea. With all the rain, the trail was difficult at times and sinking completely. ultimately, the trail washed out and we had to turn back. I understand nature and bugs....but at one point, there were a bunch of spiders that came up from under the docks. For at least 15 docks worth....I had to run through. Other than that, I'm sure it's fun at other times when the rain is down in the area.

Be prepared to get wet. Some of the superdecks were completely covered with mud and water. Otherwise the first 2 miles were nice. The last mile was through the city on a busy street. Partly with no sidewalks. The park bathrooms were closed. If you have 2 hours to spare then this is the trail for you.

This was a very cool experience. It was pretty wet, but all the more fun! Only problem was the plastic boardwalk gets very hot for dog paws. I wouldn't recommend bringing your dogs here. My poor husband had to carry our 65lb hound back to the car.

Trails were very wet today, but what do you expect when the trails are floating docks? Very fun and easy, anyone could do it.
