wonderful easy hike. lovely surroundings and quiet. you'd hardly know you were near a city. lots of unleashed dogs (which I don't really mind).

Great walking trail, well maintained. Not a big fan of the dogs off their leashes though.

This is a nice, easy going trail. I hike here almost every weekday afternoon when I leave work. As a previous commenter stated, if you don’t care for dogs jumping, sniffing, and pooping this is not your trail. It is also heavily trafficked. Today I walked from the Indian Hill Church to the end and back and I passed several people and at least 15 dogs (all off leash). Nice little trail for my daily walk but if you are looking for a trail that’s not travelled as frequently and a little more of a challenge I would look elsewhere.

Very nice trail as it’s mostly shaded (nice in summer!) and runs along a stream. I’d recommend parking/starting at Given on this out-and-back trail so you’re walking UP hill on the first leg, then hiking downhill on the return. Most people have dogs (which only have to be on leash for 1/3 of the trail) so if you’re annoyed/uncomfortable with sniffing/jumping/obnoxious/pooping dogs this may not be the trail for you. I disagree with other reviewers who indicated that it’s “low traffic.” That’s a relative term, but I hike here every weekend and unless it’s pouring down rain or below 20 degrees, I always pass 10 parties or so on this hour and 10 minute hike.

Nice wide trail, trees not too dense, key feature is the stream/river.

Great path. This is easily one of the better maintained trails in the area and is never crowded.

Beautiful trail, just wish it was longer and with a loop.

I’d give it 5 stars if I didn’t have to look down constantly to avoid all the dog do piles. Last weekend an entire family walked right past their dog without saying a word to it as it was taking a dump on the trail. Very inconsiderate!! Maybe a trash can along the trail would make dog walkers more inclined to use the pooper scooper bags that are at the trail head.

Not sure why this is rated as moderate as it's a very very easy hike. Wide gravel paved trail and well maintained. Fantastic trail for what it is just know going in that it's by no means difficult. I do recommend taking the L18 bypass loop which is about 2/3 into the "out" portion of the hike. Dips you down by the creek and off the main route. Eventually reconnects but adds a scenic route, if you will.
