The Waters Creek Wheelchair Accessible Trail is a gravel surfaced loop trail with interpretive signs that tell you about stream and forest ecology in the Waters Creek watershed. An additional loop trail about two miles in length continues up Waters Creek from the wheelchair accessible loop. The first 1.0 mile loop is Barrier Free. A second loop is for hikers only and both trails follow Water Creek with many views of drainage's, wild flowers, animal usage, and has a mixture of hardwoods and conifer with some old trees scattered through out. Benches and interpretive signs are available along the trail.

The interpretive trail is an easy 1 mile stroll but dont miss the side trail that isn't marked very well that loops deeper into the forest.

Nice little oddly placed trail in the middle of no where... Surprising use of lumber lining a whole mile of trail. Not one I'll ever do again...

Really pretty easy walk. 2 other offshoot trails wasn't sure where they went to and have a pack so didn't explore.

Great! Loved the beautiful trees and moss and the sunshine filtering through. So peaceful. Trail was pretty well maintained. Lookout for poison oak. And the toilet is awful lol. Overall-highly recommended.

nice hike and time spent with family and nature. 6 year old nephew had no problem with the hike. no breath taking views tho if you're out of shape you may breathe a little heavy! definitely enjoyed it and will go again!
