Nice easy walk for beginners. Beautiful scenery and clean landscape

Great hike! Lots of other folks with their dogs, mountain bikers, runners, walkers — you name it. I will definitely be doing this again!

This trail is actually several trails. All are fairly easy to moderate. Be careful to follow the signs, not just the paths. Great place to trail run. Most dogs are NOT on a leash. Park on the street, NOT in the parking lot.
Who Now Loop overlooks a beautiful golf course.

Great hike. Lots of snow still in April. Needed snow shoes at about 800 ft from the top. Great views.

Aside from one really nice overlook, there are probably better trails in the area. Good for kids and elderly people as it's not very strenuous. no hiking boots required.

Cool hike but do not take dogs onto any volcanic rock lightly. People only! Dogs will need booties. Also, it can get windy out here, windy enough that any hats need to be physically strapped on and jackets need to be zipped or they can catch gusts that will knock you off your feet.

The trailhead is at the end of Council Springs Road. About three minutes from the coordinates given here! The road ends with a gate at the end.

From a somewhat novice, but enthusiastic hiker:

The driving directions provided took me right to the start of the trail on the map. I thought it was a very pretty hike overall. I have no sense of direction, so I made sure my phone was charged, so I could stick to the map. The GPS totally ate up my battery...started out at 85% and by the time I hit the spot where you move from Corral’s to Bob’s trail, my battery was down to 10%. It was a little confusing which sign went to which trail at that point and I ended up having to backtrack a bit. Not going to lie...I was a little terrified at that point and felt like I was out in the middle of nowhere...luckily, I very kind couple, who knew the trail system well looked at my map for me and told me that I was, indeed, now on Bob’s Trail, which would end at a culdesac in a subdivision. Highlands trail starts there and if I took that trail and stayed left at every opportunity, I should make it back to my starting point on the map. It almost worked...following those directions, I was almost murdered by a mountain biker, traversed up a slightly heartbreaking zigzag of trail up to the top of a ridge (which seemed never-ending enough, that it caused me to start rationing the trail mix), where I could finally see the parking lot where my car was, but could not figure out how to get to it...so I hiked down to the parking for another trailhead and hiked up/down Bogus Basin Road to the lot where my car was parked...very pretty, nice hike...slightly heartbreaking at the end....glad I wore waterproof hiking boots...would’ve twisted my ankle a few times had I not worn mids and had to cross a stream somewhere around 6 times. The climbs are not as steep as Table Rock...

04/18/2018-We started at Crestwood Court. The trail was in good shape. Two blow downs right before the Big Tree. Shortly after Big Tree the snow got very deep and numerous blow downs. We couldn’t make it to the Forrest service road to go up to the tower. Other hikers reported moose and bear on the trail past Big Tree. Still, we were able to hike 3.4 miles and gain 1,000 feet in elevation.

Great hike. The start and finish is steep (medium level) but the rest of the hike is flat and follows the river. We’re here in April and there were 5 waterfalls!

A calming way to end a day. I did it straight from work wearing rain boots and had no issues.

the creek is nice and warm!

Fun hike to start the year. The water is so clear and beautiful. We did the full loop, took us about 3 hours, including sightseeing and picture taking.

nice easy hike with great view
some blind spot on cyclist.

their is still 1-3 feet of snow on the trail most of the way. it was compact enough to stay on top of it (most the time) without falling through. I would wait at least a month if you don't want to deal with the snow.

Very easy, to the point of being kind of boring.

We hiked up to the second lake, took a swim, and hiked back out. There is a shuttle from the lodge that will take you across and I think you can just hike straight up or down if you want a round trip. Check the map.

We went during beautiful wildflowers season. The path was lined with flowers in certain areas. Super beautiful.

Super quiet. We plan on doing this hike again this summer!

our family has hiked here a few times and love it. my two sons 3 and 7 do great, note we are avid hikers.

Great for kids! Short & sweet! Opportunities for more hiking if desired up & around the canyon!

fun! great with dogs! be careful because it DOES loop into the old wagon trail hike from the park down the road. we ended up going almost 6 miles!

Awesome! Great hike. Beautiful scenery.

was wonderful today, April 9th. good ups and downs, enough challenge mixed with some moments of decent to get your breath back. very beautiful!

very cool

Cool hike

My fiancé and I hiked this trail yesterday and we loved it. Even though we hit snow halfway up the mountain the view from the summit was well worth it and the dogs had a blast too!

Great path that is paved and follows the river.

The falls are great and the trail is alright. Highlight of this Greenbelt is the garden on the rock just south of the Broadway bridge.
