This should be rated as Easy. Total of 37ft in elevation change, and some of the trail is paved. Out and back from trailhead at Collins to Fall Creek was only .96 miles. Trail was clean and well kept. As previous reviews have stated, there are only a handful of spots where you can’t see streets or houses. Good spot for an evening walk, but that’s about it. CoR needs to have more unpaved trails for hikers and mountain bikers. I’ll be back because it’s so close to home, but nothing special. Parking situation is also on the poor side; that being a complete lack of at the trailhead.

Nice place for a leisurely walk, but this trail is far from being "moderate." It's just a pleasant gravel trail that meanders through some thick foliage adjacent to a creek. We enjoy walking our dog here.

This is a prime spot for people to have their portraits taken, so it can get rather crowded at times. Also, during the summer and late fall it can smell rancid in certain spots, possibly because of a sewer line in the area.

Nice trail by the creek. Most of the trail is wheelchair accessible. Frequented by morning walkers from the neighborhood, all of which greeted me with smiles.

Not sure why this is rated as moderate, but has nice stream and lots of wildlife (saw variety of birds, including a hawk). It's gravel for most of the trail. For most of the walk you can tell you are in a neighborhood but pockets where you are surrounded by complete nature. Not crowded at all, there seemed to be plenty of street parking on the side streets, didn't have a problem. Overall, nice Sunday stroll or run or ride, great for beginners.

Scenic and shady. Waterfall was fun. Saw lots of wildlife for the city. Parking isn't great but good trail.

Starts out paved at N Collins Ave for a short distance then turns into a natural trail. Trail listed distance wasn't accurate, it was .5 miles one way. Very scenic, too bad the trail isn't longer it would make for a really nice run.

Very easy hike. You can park right near the small waterfall. Kids and dogs can play in the water. Trail is short, partially paved. Plenty of grass and space to play ball near the waterfall. Good place for a picnic.
