Not very difficult and I'm pretty out of shape. It's pretty, you cross the creek a lot, at times with not a clear line of rocks, so you'll probably get your shoes wet (it's really not deep, it's not a big deal). They allow dogs off the leash and there were a LOT of dogs when I went, running around. It gets mildly more difficult further in, but for the most part the trail is flat. People leave their plastic bags of dog poop all over the place, unfortunately.

TL;DR It's nice scenery, it's not difficult, don't go if you don't want to be approached by dogs throughout the trail. And your shoes might get wet.

Was beautiful expect for all the nasty doggie(plastic) bags full of poop all over. People shove them in holes of trees hang them in trees and it was honestly disgusting to see. Austin had gone plastic free so why not allow the poop to disintegrate naturally instead of picking it up and placing it into plastic bags. Make zero sense. Hmmm dog poop takes a few weeks and plastic bags, well never. Think people. Other than that it was a great hiking trail.

Really enjoyed this one. The dogs are almost all off leash so prepare for that. Due to the giant barreling huskies running at you I would not recommend this for small children, small dogs or dogs with any behavioral issues.

You must be spry to perform this hike. I did okay crossing the first 5 creek (after a rain it can get deep in some places) crossings and then fell in the water about half way ha. Definitely a hike you want to wear chacos or other water/hiking shoes.

Trail was busy on a Saturday morning, probably pretty nuts in the summer months as there a good places to sit by/in the water to cool off

We had a great hike and it was perfect for my 8 year old son who loves crisscrossing the Creek.

Must love dogs (which I do), they're everywhere! Make sure to wear water shoes or shoes you don't mind getting wet. The entire trail runs along and often through water.

Awesome trail. Water crossing areas that are especially fun for dogs, kids, and kids-at-heart alike!
