Got caught in the rain, but the trail was fairly covered. There is a section that is on the street and plenty of streams to walk over. Also, there is a playground at one end.

Easy trail, quiet and serene. Wear good hiking shoes, lots of rocks and some incline.

I’d consider this more of an in and out than a loop, unless you count walking through a neighborhood for part of the “loop.” Overall though, really nice trail with lots of little side trails and places to explore! Definitely echo what others said, that a pair of good waterproof hiking boots is the right footwear decision for this one.

Nice shady trail through the woodland, with a few small meadows for variety. Just so you know, there are stream crossings. They have stepping stones but they’re not all stable and would be submerged after a good rain. If you have kids, bring extra sox. Bring some for me too. One foot is wet.

The trail is beautiful, but I would disagree that it is "easy" and "suitable for all levels" due to the uneven footing in several places and the numerous challenging creek crossings over jagged and slippery rocks.

I highly recommend hiking boots for this trail. It rained a couple days before we went for the hike, and it was a bit muddy in parts. You will have to transverse a few parts that cross over the creek; it's not too bad but might be harder for little children or older adults. You do go through a neighborhood but personally, I didn't mind it that much. There are some parts you can stop and enjoy the creek, which had water flowing through. The trail was overall nice and relaxed. We went around noon and there were a few small families we passed but nothing too busy.

Hiking

Pretty decent trail for a city park. Lots of shade, some light rocky portions and a few creek crossings. There was a bit of dog poop left on the trail near the beginning. If you follow AllTrails’ suggested start, there is a sign that says there is no trash pick up in the area. Presumably, that’s likely why people don’t pick up after their pets, but less than halfway through the loop, you’ll come upon a small neighborhood park with trash bins.

HikingGreat!

The trail was nice. Scenic, not too difficult with pretty light traffic for a Saturday afternoon. We do prefer a good "loop" so we did not LOVE that we were spit out in a neighborhood. However we walked for a bit, and were able to find another trail head rather quickly. All-in-all, this was a good trail. Humans and dog had a nice time. Easy to get lost, but thats part of the fun! Peaceful. Would probabIy return.

This route took you through a neighborhood which was strange. But the trail itself was very pretty.
