Great place for a day hike. Went with my dogs and enjoyed the river. It's beautiful and relaxing. The only thing I found confusing was to be able to tell what trail to follow and where it was taking me. I think they need to be more specific at pointing that out because the second time I went for a run through a different entrance and got lost but found my way back.

Really enjoyed this hike. As many of the other reviews stated, it's surprisingly beautiful for being right in the middle of town. We took the trail along the river out and the Ridgeline Trail back which provided for some nice variety. Just about the right length and just about the right difficulty. Will definitely do this Trail again.

Great for trail running, many steep hills and valleys but extremely narrow along the upper canyon. There are about 3-4 areas with pretty extreme washouts so just use caution.
