Took a walk out while on vacation. Nice little stroll with plenty of spots to stop for a dip on a hot day. The trail is easy enough to do in your beach footwear. the views are great and include ocean birds and sail boats.
There are several smaller paths you can take that connect the loops 2 sides but no signage. Being a small peninsula you can't really get lost so if you want you can make the walk longer byzig zagging your way out.

Lots of fun! There are some great views on this trail; however I was constantly surrounded by a group of gnats, so that was annoying.

This was marked by someone who has never hiked. I don’t have any other explanation. The first time I went around I got off trail about 4 times I had to backtrack and by the end lost the trail completely, ended up on someone’s driveway and took that out. I thought I could go the opposite way to see where I went wrong and instead ended up taking a big circle back to the parking lot.
I have been hiking for over 30 years and never had a more frustrating experience than this loop. The blue seems what you follow when you start and then the yellow comes out of nowhere. There are probably 50-100 trails that branch off for access from peoples homes.
I wanted to love this because it’s so close to home but it’s awful and I’ll only ever go back for kayaking.

Beautiful!

I love the upper pond is nice peaceful hiking

Easy 3/4 mile stroll up to the falls. Nice falls but overrun with jackasses not heeding the no swimming or diving signs. Loud and full of humanity on a warm weekend. Nice to see it but I don't think I'll be coming back. Not as spectacular as, say, Kent Falls, and just too many people. Parking is also a mess.

Great hike. So picturesque. It can get a little challenging on the more natural paths on the way out but to me that’s the best part.
So many mushrooms on the trail today. Beautiful and varied.

This is a good easy going trail in the area. Pearce Lake in particular is very scenic especially for sunset in the evening. The upper pond is good for swimming. The whole loop will give you a solid workout and the paved road is a nice touch making it good for family with strollers as well.

Awesome

Now that the park is open I noticed they want $6 or $8 at the gate, a day-use fee. Nobody was manning the station so I just parked (there is a self-service pay station but I was only planning on being there an hour or so). Maybe next time I'll just pay it, they keep the place in pretty good shape. I did a little bushwack on this trek and also noticed they mended the fence so it's more difficult to get into the quarry area. That is private property so suppose I should stay out. A nice loop for sure and the Doggy Memorial, absolutely precious.

Parts feel as if your in Colorado. Spectacular meadows studded with exotic evergreens. Magnificent

Very little view of the water. Difficult to find trailhead until we realized it was off golf course entrance. Black flies were bad. Boardwalk section of trail was pretty enjoyable, despite needing repairs. Very easy hike.

Flat trail, nothing special. Wouldn’t go here unless you live really close to it. There are better trails around.

This short walk along a stream on a hot day when many people were cooling off walking around in the water was really nice! No swimming by the actual falls (strictly enforced). Super crowded with families and lots of people and dogs.

This was one of the best hikes I have ever done. Bring a towel and wear your bikini so you can take a dip. Some of the trail was submerged but don’t let that deter you bc there were alternative routes (or just tough it out and walk through the shallows). This was one of the highlights of my summer!

Tried to get to 500' elevation gain over at Cedar Hill. Parked at the top and ran up and down 3x. Almost did it. Nice way to get the blood flowing!!!

It was cool to see all the bunkers but the bugs were literally out of control. I would recommend going when some bugs have died for the season...

The trail is scenic and its around 8 miles. Follow the yellow markings on trees as the trails are not marked well. Shoutout to the app the map and gps tracking helped us. There are too many mosquitoes, carry insect repellant and hiking gear.

awesome ride to the beach and back. went off route couple times to check things out. Great campground along the way.

4.25/5 is my review and we only saw a fraction of the park. The staff at the gates were very helpful and the park itself is pristine with clear water and and easy terrain. Living minutes away, this place is a gem.

Great hike for the whole family, kids really had a great time.

had a beautiful kayack trip, although couldnt find a good place to swim. some areas had no swimming signs up.

Great for a family? Two parking sites one further away then the other. Our 7 and 9 yearold loved the hike and the falls. Room to go out on rocks which were safe for most, with the exception of very young kids or those with mobility difficulty. Well worth the trip.

Ugly path. At least on the initial section I ran on.

Me and my bestfriend did this hike today!!! Loved every second of it. Peaceful, and relaxing! A lot of activities too. People bring their dogs, they jog, there’s people swimming! Very clean, very nice! Would definitely recommend to everyone who you like to walk peacefully.

Decided to go here as I hadn't walked the area in about 35 years. Found out there is an outer loop and a lakeside loop or shorter walk. The outer has some undulation on the trails and a little bit of elevation changes. Took about 45 minutes for the outer loop. The area has moderate traffic so expect to see a few people walking the area. There are also many other trails that branch out from this so take a brochure as you start the hike in case you want to extend your walk. The beginning is just to the left of the parking lot but it doesn't really say it's the starting area. It just is an area with a place to view the map and has a gate so start walking up and look for yellow blazes. It's really not that difficult and I would consider it an easy trail but on the higher end of that rating. Did the inner or lakeside loop afterwards and this starts next to the yellow blazed trail. Look to the left as you start walking up from the gated area and then stay close to the lake. The trails are really like something you'd see going to Disney. They put gravel down in spots so it's more like a walking on a sidewalk to start. You go over a nice footbridge and can check out some of the back of the lake if you want to walk down from the trail to the side of it.

Beautiful spot. I went on a Tuesday afternoon. No horses - couple of mountain bikers and campers but otherwise quiet. Sunlight filtering through trees. Peaceful.
