A very nice area to hike, my dog and I had a good time. Trails are wide enough for two people to walk next to each other with room to spare, except for a couple of spots that were a little tight. The hiking trails had several rocky areas that were a little slippery due to the rain earlier in the morning.
Parking is questionable and very limited. I'd like to go back again soon. Take the side trails if you are looking for an actual hike if not the main path is crushed gravel and very wide.

Pretty good spot. On the one side of the creek it's all trails, the other side is an unpaved road. There were a lot of people on the road side, and it was very easy. Trail side is more of a challenge. Both sides have cool stuff to see and since the area is basically surrounded by towns and burbs, there is some really interesting old architecture. If you enter via Seminole Rd. be prepared for a steep hill on the way out.
