Very flat, easy walking trail with separate smaller trails that fork off leading to various sections of Big Elk Creek. It’s more of a 5 mile hike if you take any of the side paths. Great for dogs who love to swim! My lab thoroughly enjoyed herself.

Nice easy out & back walk. It was pretty buggy this weekend but very pretty. There is an old abandoned stone house, which my kids were stoked to check out.

Nice out and back. It's more like 5 miles rather than 4.1.

Very nice out and back trail along the big Elk creek. Was able to use the BOB stroller for my 2 year old.

Nice shaded trail. Benches along the path to sit and relax while you watch the creek. Only complaint is people that don’t have their dogs on leashes also not cleaning up after their dogs. Watch where you step on the trail.

I had a great walk with my Standard Poodle. We enjoyed the butterflies, the coolness of the canopy and stream, great pictures, the short conversations with other hikers, and time for us both to get wet in the water. Moderately busy trail until about 3pm on Sunday.(in the summer). Yes, people let their dogs off leash. Most dogs and owners respectful.I had to get sticks to protect my dog at one point. Nothing serious, though, unless you have a reactive dog. I also ran into horses. I will be back with friends!!!

Nice trail, mostly shaded! Will be back to explore a few of the other trails. I wish people would clean up after their dogs!

Easy 4 mile hike up and back, no hills to speak of, not all that well maintained for a gravel trail, lots of unleashed dogs (watch out for doggy doo), didn't see any mountain bikes but it was a bit muddy. There's an offshoot trail that I did not explore but will someday when it's not quite so muddy. Trail is closed Mon-Sat during deer hunting season in December and January. Very small parking lots at either end.

Great mountain biking trail, fairly flat. The inclines were not steep by any means. First time trail riding with my 6 year old and 10 year old. We had a great time. Great scenery and quite a few access points to the stream.

The trail is great, but there's a large population of dogs off lead. Can take away from the scenery when you're worried about what dog is coming up around the bend.

Nice trail with active wildlife. I almost stepped on multiple snakes, saw numerous birds, and encountered plentiful half dollar sized tadpoles in the creek. My track was a little over 4 miles. It was very easy and relaxing.
