It was decent just short! Had to walk through a residential area but that was the worst part about it!

Wonderful trail system with lots of shady trails and creeks with some water even mid-summer. I prefer to start this at Great Hills Park begins the playground.

We really enjoyed this trail. It has it all. it has shaded areas, waterfalls, stair steps. It even leads you to a park in the neighborhood. One of my new favorites. it's very lush and green most of the way.

Great little trail. Has a nice creek that runs through both forks of the trail and some springs that keep enough water in it to support a couple of fish pools. Overall easy trail, but the water crossing on the N fork is a bit reicky

Beautiful trail! Lots of wild flowers and different trails within. We saw a snake so just be cautious.

Great trail, for hiking. We saw a lot of water spots and several shaded areas. Elevation change is good too! Not that many people on the trail.

It was a nice trail and a nice walk to go on. I Was not able to walk the full trail as one of the bridges were upside down and broken about 1.82 miles from the starting point. So I went through the neighborhood and walked back to my starting point. Walking through the neighborhood was terrible as it was supper hot and hardly any shade.

Great scenic hike thats mostly in the shade. Lots of easy creeks to pass and changes in Terrain. Reminds me of a mini easier Riverplace Nature Trail. Only knock is that you have to walk through a neighborhood to reach the other side of the trail

Great for families with small kids. Northwest branch leads to very nice developed playscape. Lots of forks in trail offer variety and constant water crossings break up an otherwise easy walk.

Beautiful hike! Took us just over an hour to complete. There was quite a bit of river hopping that the kids enjoyed but my wife did not.
