Exactly what we were looking for- moderate intensity, easy parking, easy to navigate, beautiful greenery (thanks to the seasons rains) and returned back to the car in two hours. Alltrails led us right to the trailhead where parking in the neighborhood community is easy. Moderate hilly. Packed a lunch but didn’t need it. Would definitely recommend given the convenience and relatability. Also we went between 12:20-2:20 and there was ample shade. At least 40%

Great trail!

Great trail. It is all paved with divided lines in the middle. There are lots trees and a lot of shade. I started from Hellyer Park and walked south. I enjoyed the view of the hills, the creek with a small water fall, and a couple of bridges. There is a moderate amount of traffic. Watch out for bicyclists and skate boarders so stay in the right side. I didn’t see any wild boars or tents. The best part are the restrooms on both ends of the trail. It took me an hour to walk from one end to another. Give yourself two hours to complete.

It has some shades. Nice hikes

Me and my 2 years old son love this trails. We’ll be back.

I consider this an easy trails but for my 2 years old is moderate however we went super slow and it was a fun hike. We got there very early in the morning. The hikers and dogs are nice. Minus one star for the dogs poop on the path ways and some people left the poop in a bag along the side ways. Unacceptable! There is no poop fairy!

nice clean easy trail

most of the trail is too narrow. my dog picked up at least 10 ticks in 3 hours there. other than that a good workout. not crowded and friendly people.

Super windy today, but better in the trees. Saw lots of deer and birds, almost nobody else out except a few other mountain bikers. Along the lake is a fun ride, not too much extreme elevation

Pretty, but not spectacular. I would recommend this hike if you just want to get outdoors for the day with your pup, but I wouldn’t travel too far to take this hike.

It you want more of a walk rather than a full hike this trail is perfect for you. It’s paved, shaded and flat

Have gone on this trail for the last 3 weekends. Great exercise and great trail. The signs are easy to follow (disagree with latest post). If in doubt, use the All Trails app. Saw deers at the top of the hill. One caution to pet owner is we found a couple ticks on our dogs every time. So make sure you inspect your pup after the hike.
