This is a great route for dogs, bikes, and walking. Many enjoy sunbathing at the creek while dogs playing in the water. There are many interconnecting trails in the area to extend this hike and continue exploring. Please note that is not advised to travel along the route when conditions are wet. Walking and biking along the wet clay can further the damage done by rain.

We wanted a short hike where the dogs could go off leash on a Saturday. We chose this one because we knew we’d be able to park easily without waiting and hit the trail. This particular trail was not too crowded although the park was hoppin. We stopped along the creek and played fetch and had the place all to ourselves for a good 15 minutes. Lots of different trails, will be back to hit the rest of them!

Nice, well maintained trails. A little muddy after a rain but usually dries quickly.

Walnut Creek park is always a sight to see. We try to explore new routes with each visit. Water was flowing nicely today. Careful of the bike traffic though... they can speed around corners pretty fast.

WalkingOff trail

Seemed like a trail for mostly bikes. No one really walking it, just bikes zooming by. Looking forward to the other trails Walnut Creek Park has to offer!

It was so pretty! Lots of nature to be fully involved in. Many trees and beautiful water in the creek throughout the hike! We went after a rain and it was muddy in a lot of walking parts near the water but easy to avoid!

Pretty trail! Picnic by the river in the off leash section maybe not the best idea.

Walking

As of November 10th they are cutting trees down and I was able to walk through but when it came time to walk back to my car they won’t let you through so I’m having to walk next to busy streets with my GPS on to get back.

Great moderate to hard trail. Beware of dog droppings at the beginning and for bikers throughout. Not too rocky when compared to other trails, and mainly shaded. It would be incredibly easy to get lost without this app!
