Pros: Close to Portland Metro Area, so if you don't want to spend a lot of time driving to a trail you can get here relatively quickly from town. Has a variety of scenery, a couple of creeks, meadows, forest, and WSU campus. Dogs allowed.
Cons: There are many crisscrossing and parallel trails that are not well signed so it can be easy to lose your bearings. On the other hand, it is surround by suburbs on every side, so you couldn't get lost in the wilderness. I did find that using the All Trails app on my cell phone GPS, with the "Satellite" layer turned on allowed us to see where we were.
