3 stars on the grand scheme, it’s a great trail, wooded, shaded, some nice views...but it’s short, has stinky outhouses at the half way area, near neighborhoods and residential areas so it loses a couple of cool points. If you’re looking for an easy stroll on a gravel path...this is it, but please get off your cell phone soccer mom and try to enjoy it!

Great trail. Many options to take on the trial. Visiting from another state. I would recommend it but put mosquito spray on before you ride. They were out today.

Good nature-filled trail for being located in the suburbs. Gravel and dirt paths with good signage throughout. Creek and pond feature at various points. Able to hear road noise through decent amount of trail. Neighborhood houses visible at parts.

Great trail for dogs and kids! Lots of beautiful nature, creeks and even a lake to explore!

Park as soon as you turn off Old Alabama for the 1.4 mile hiking trail - easy walk in wooded area. Drawback was the drone of traffic in the background and rather monotonous scenery.

Most recordings don't include this little side trek up the road to Leita's house. There is an interpretive sign there too, a must-see I'd say. Love this place, it was a nice relaxing run in the woods this day!

Beautiful hike with lots of options within the system. Long 4+ plus miles to short 1 mile easy loop. Big minus...dog poo. All over the path and in bags. Pickup after yourself.

such a great trail to get a good quick workout in. this place will always be dear to my heart as I used to live just 5 minutes from here. the hills are good ones and in the summer, my dog used to get in the creek and cool off. so many great places for photos too.

Great trail and if you have dogs there is a dog park right by the parking.

Well maintained trail. My only complaint is that the “Take Outs” along the trail are reserved for emergency vehicles only and not hikers. There are no short cuts for hikers as the paved road in the middle is locked at the entrance.

Wide gravel trail with some moderate elevation! Great hike in the middle of suburban neighborhood's!

Good length for a quick workout. A number of hills to get your heart rate up. All woods - would be cool in the summer.

Beautiful this time of year. Moderate amount of people, but worth the time. Wonderfully maintained so us out of towners enjoyed it thoroughly. Ran 8.5 mi

I was first unimpressed at the start. But the more I walked, the more I became pleasantly surprised with the scenery changes. The concrete walk changed to a boardwalk through wetlands and then back to a concrete walk along Big Creek. I also admired the beauty of the marsh area. Dog friendly. Benches and Poop Bags are available.

Easy trail by a dog park and memorial gardens. There is a small lake/pond and creek along the trails. Good for trail running and dog and kid friendly. Largely shaded by trees.

We couldn't figure out how to get to the longer loop so our hike was only 1.5 miles and was VERY easy. Good "walk" for little kids and dogs, but there are tons of bike riders if you go off the pedestrian trail

good trail. wife & I enjoyed it.

Well maintained trail system. There are different options for adjusting the length of the hike/walk/run.

It's beautiful out here. Great trails. Love the greenway as well.

Nice walk. Lots of walkers and dogs, but the trail is wide enough for all. Pond along red/blue is a nice treat... be sure to include the pond loop!

My son and I went, it's a peaceful walk.

Great trail! Very well maintained and several activities to do at the park. The trail is very well shaded and will make for an excellent walk when the temperature sky rockets. For about an hour of exercise that is literally over a river and through the woods, I would highly recommend this trail. Additionally, the story of Ms. Thompson whom the park is named after is a very interesting one.

It was a decent trail but short. Great for those who want to bike and many more trails for mountain biking than hiking. I couldn't find the trail marked "outer loop" that showed a 4.78 mile hike.

This is a good Trail for a quick walk or short run (~2.25 miles at full length). There are no exciting views but very family friendly.

Great trail! Everything from beginner to advanced.

The paved trail is ok, but big creek is great not because of the paved trail, but the awesome xc and free ride mountain bike trails located in the park. Big Creek also offers decent dirt running/walking trails.

This is hands down my favorite trail to walk my dogs on. The only drawback is that they get filthy from the creeks, lake, and gravel trail, but it is totally worth it. Canopy overhead makes summer walking tolerable. Trails zig zag and many hills keep it interesting.

The trail was clean and easy to find. it is all gravel so no mud. Easy walk, just watch for bikes because their trails intersect the walking trail.
