Steep in the beginning but a very easy path for trail running, well maintained!

My tripod dog and I did this and had a great time. It was very easy for both of us and gave him a couple of places to splash in shallow water. We ran into other hikers, runners, and bikers.

A nice hike. As others have mentioned, the Waterline trail is steep. I banged my knee on the way down and hiked the rest of the trail with a bloody knee. Overall trip took me about 2 hours to complete.

Easy hike with nice views.

Very rocky, not scenic at all (or very little), confusing at times---and it's $5 per person to get in the park.

Beautiful trail but very rocky!

Very well maintained and heavily used trail. One incline at the beginning but smooth after getting to the ridge. We hiked to the tower and then down Varnedoe back to the trailhead. Great trip for us.

Nice easy trail with a slight but steady incline. It was a perfect afternoon trip for me, my wife, 6 year old son and our old dog. Had a ton of rock outcroppings sand a small stream for the dog to grab a drink.
