Several small loops each just over a mile including one with sand which is a bit tricky.

I run this when flooding doesn't ruin my plans. It floods easily at the entrance, and there is a sign at the trailhead that will tell you if trail is closed or not. Only receives 4 stars for this reason. Take the long way on the Sandy Loop to get the longest loop and have lots of twists and turns. Head up the middle for a short hike to see the river quickly. Trail seriously needs a raised path or concrete to get across the creek to the trails. This is the months long mud that prevents access when it floods.

This trail is close to a major highway but you'd never know it. Easy for kids and nice views of the river.

It was a really cute trail, a bit muddy but fun. It was definitely easy and short enough that next time I would bring the kids. You're also going to want to bring bug spray.

a fun quick trail, lots of sand in on the northern loop due to flooding. Will make it a bit more difficult for bikes.
