Herman Creek Trail is well kept, with nice waterfalls. Steep in places, but certainly manageable for most people, even some dogs. Good options for doing a loop with Indian Point, Nick Eaton Trail, Casey Creek .

I'm new to the hiking scene and bit off a little more than I could chew with this trail. Started too late in the day and did not make it to the peak because of that, but gorgeous scenery and if my calves were more prepared for the steepness of this trail, I would give it 5 stars. We didn't pass a lot of people and felt pretty secluded. I will definitely be back to go the full length next time.

A little elevation gain at the start but was a pretty plain jane trail. Nice rushing creek and cool breeze, easy trail in my book. If you want some elevation gain and a workout do Indian Point Loop.
