Park there and cross the small footbridge to reach Mill Race Trail which runs along the north side of the creek.

Beautiful trails, lovely park, everyone you see is always kind and courteous. 10/10 would recommend to anybody to hike here. Great for trail runs, casual hikes, all day adventures, picnics, etc.

Sadly I see a lot of people down voting trails due to things you come across while hiking. Please consider: 1. You can cross where it says, it is a creek crossing. Wear proper shoes for your hike and enjoy! May I also suggest a water bag? 2. Wildlife was here before you, respect and admire from a distance and try to remember it is all part of a HIKING experience. 3. Yes, dogs sometimes are off leash to go swimming and/or if they are good dogos HOWEVER be mindful that not everyone you will see on the trail likes dogs. The Park Rangers are ticket happy, just a friendly reminder. 4. Avoid tickets and just park in the designated parking lots 'cause trust me, they'll get 'ya.

Enjoy nature, be respectful, use common sense, take your trash back with you and have a blast! Hope to see ya'll out there.

this would be great if you could actually cross the creek where it tells you to. There's no bridge though it looks like if the water is low enough you could cross at that point but then you have to go up an incredibly steep incline.

Perfect for my dogs. one has a bad hip. it is relatively flat without big stones on the trail and not too long.

Best trail in Evansburg, but not challenging at all and not that exciting.

Great trail to go exploring with kids. Note you can not cross over the river where this shows. You have to turn back

Came here with great company and has a blast. The trails were moderate, but were a ton of fun due to the small footing challenge.
There was a whole lot of horses all over the trails back in Evansburg.
The water appeared very clear and the dog had a blast putting her feet into the water.
Unfortunately, the camera had lost battery so we were unable to take any pictures...we will have to go back again because the park was stunning.

Not sure why this trail has not been reviewed because it was the first one that we set foot on due to where we parked. Was a neat little trail.
