This trail is nicely shaded with access to the creek at various points along the trail. It's narrow so you'll need to stop and allow others to pass. Took my dogs and they enjoyed stopping at the creek for a swim. Easy, peasy and relaxing!

Trail running again yesterday.

As I said below, on the north/east side of the creek, it's easy to moderate. Mostly flat, softer dirt. On the south/west side, it gets steep, rocky, and rugged. If you want to get some hardcore trail running, mountain biking, hiking in, this park is pretty good, even if it only has 7 or 8 miles of trail system (despite the 3.5 in the description).

If I failed to mention below, this park and trail system has some of the best views. On the south/west side of the creek, take one of the three middle trails up towards the back, and take the first trail into the middle of the trail system. You should be right above the creek, and the views are totally awesome.
