Decent trail overall. I was surprised at how dead the forest still was in mid April. One thing that was very much alive, was the local coyote population. Even during the day, I could hear baby coyotes many times, and even spotted at least 15 adults. None were aggressive, but I would think twice about taking dogs on this trail in the near future

Beautiful hike with occasional small elevation changes to keep it interesting and to get your heart rate going. The spring flowers are starting to bloom!

Truly beautiful views of the hills and streams, plus some cool rock formations! But, a large portion of the trail runs right along the roadway. Now, navigation is not my forte, but parts of the trail were confusing. I got out to the waterfall going counterclockwise but couldn’t figure out where the loop continued, so after walking in circles for a bit I ultimately had to backtrack. If you just want to see the nice views, there are several spots where you can enter the trail from the road closer to the waterfall area.

Follows the road, passes a golf course. typical metro parks trail. Does get into the woods for about a mile. It does have a cave and waterfall which is nice. It has numerous trail crossings and you will need your map to stay on the correct trail.
