There are a lot of trails criss-crossing the main one. The trail is good for exercise and has a great dog park at the base of the trails. Otherwise the views are meh.

Easy to get off track near trailhead due to multiple paths going different directions.
Lots of dog walkers. Get's more secluded the farther you get from trailhead making for a nice peaceful hike or run.

Does have a pretty view, but it is absolutely swarmed with bugs unfortunately. The bugs made it hard to enjoy the walk even with bug spray on.

Lovely 1.6 mike loop for walking/hiking with kids. My 3.5 year old loved the woodsy entrance, stroll out onto the dock, running past the farm - the horses were right up by the fence. Lots of interesting flora and many birds as well. No real elevation gain. When clear, nice views of the mountains across the lake.

this Trail is great and long for casual rides, just try to make sure that you stay on the correct path. you'll end up heading through a neighborhood which is kind of boring so try to stay on the marked unpaved Trail

Not a bad little stroll. Easy walk and connects to many of the other trails in the area. It’s great for a dog walk or just to get out for some fresh air without a substantial hike. Saw a coyote on the trail in the morning. Make sure you read the signs on what to do if you encounter one.

The paths leading to the trail (as of today) are slightly flooded. There is a spot to cross the water with logs but otherwise you have to puddle jump. If you try to bring your dog, you're gonna have a gross dog afterward.

It is very beautiful, highly trafficked. I prefer more solitude.

Good for seeing ducks and other birds. Nice view view of the mountains.

Great for a quick 1 mile trail. PortaPotty, benches, dog waste stations, dock to see water/ ducks, birds and saw a dad fishing with his kids. Easy fir dogs and kids.

What a fabulous trail. Water, nature, Mountain View’s, mixed terrain and other people here and there. It was a fabulous 4 mike hike (3 times around) ...sunny and blue skies in February

Nice trail where dogs can be off-leash. There were a lot of dogs towards the entrance but you eventually get a decent amount of space to yourself while walking in the trail. Beautiful views!! Easy walk, so peaceful.

I WALK this trail all the time with my dog - and have ridden part of it

I have ridden my bike on this trail dozens of times and love it!

Really enjoyed this trail. I’m always looking for new places to run that offer great scenery. This if a wide crushed rock trail with a number of transitions in grade. The trail as shown in the map from the trail head to S 112th St is just over 1.5 miles one way. It was great to get in a 5k, out and back. Enjoy.

We go all the time with our dog. Love everything about it minus the parking (not always enough) and crowds unless you go at off times. Beautiful place and you can see farm animals :)

Kinda barren and close to busy roads but a decent place to relax during lunch break.

This is one of my favorite places for a longer run. The scenery changes a lot along the way keeping it interesting.
