A picture perfect nature walk. Don’t miss the lookout over the creek! It was bug-free in August.

A story book trail. Lush green forest, well maintained trail, short .5 mile walk to the Swift Creek overlook. My COSTCO non-Deet bug spray was barely adequate even with reapplication every 15 minutes. Bring the good stuff or plan for dizzy dehydration due to blood loss. Clockwise on the loop for gentle trail up and more dramatic elevations down.

Perfect place to take small children. The birds and flowers are beautiful. Trail is fairly level and wide enough to walk while holding their hands.

Went with my family that needed an easy hike. My mom had a hip replacement three weeks prior to this hike and liked it. She used walking sticks, but had no trouble navigating this. My two year old walked most of it herself. Nice and short, but don’t forget the bug spray!

Went with family of 6 with oldest kid being 8 youngest kid being 2. A nice hike with no complaints for the kids. 2 year old did most of it by foot.

Super fun mountain bike loop for beginners. We just started venturing into mountain biking and have had a hard time finding trails that aren't incredibly bumping, curvy, or without major inclines/declines. This one was so perfect! A little exciting with a few bumps, two sharp turns, but lots and lots of fun. I wanted to do the loop all darn day!

Great for young children. We pushed a 3 wheeled, jogging stroller for our 2 year old, although he could have walked most of it.
