There are no more that 22 parking spaces, so if you go, then go early or go on a weekday, though you shouldn't expect to have any solitude even then. If you have dogs, then Red Bud Isle is worth a one-time trip just to say that you've been there. Better for dog socializing than dog exercising. It's not really big enough to get any real exercise.

if you're looking to hike or be there longer than 30 minutes don't go here. but for a quick run with the dog it's perfect ! just wish parking didn't have only 20 spots for everyone

Very secluded island trail. I don't recommend this trail for anyone who doesn't like dogs, it is basically a massive off-leash dog park. The loop is small but great if you just want to get Fido some exercise. There is water access for swimming and my dogs love it here.

Absolutely gorgeous off-leash dog park. Probably the prettiest park in town. But, it's small and crowded and can be very difficult to park.

I'm torn between 3 stars and 4 stars. This is great for dogs and ours loved it but it does smell a little worse than most dog parks but you get used to it quickly. The worst part is parking. Since this is a pretty popular dog park and the lot is small, you most likely will have to wait in a line as one car leaves, one can enter. Our wait on a Sunday around 11am was about 25 mins. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who really wants a good hiking experience or doesn't have dogs. It's all walking but once you can actually park, and get passed the smell, you'll end up on the edge of the park and that view is well worth it.

I love this trail, very nature intimate, almost feels like there is no one else in the world but you .
