Paved. If it was unpaved, it’d be safer when wet. This place all slippy when wet my dudes.

Really not bad for a paved trail - a lot of deer hang out in this park, they mostly ignore people. Drive slowly since they cross the roads quite a bit.

Walked up on ALL the elk on accident. Whoops. Scary, but very friendly creatures. Give them space and respect their space.

The trail was extremely muddy today . The suck your shoes off type of mud. Otherwise very nice day.

Great trail-kid friendly. We were the only ones on the trail and enjoyed walking along the creek and river, then exploring the bath houses and grand staircase (make sure to go to the top for a view). Needs a bit of cleanup for trash closer down to the waterline.

Great trails. Loved hiking with the elk! Holy and great elevation! Will definitely do again!

Easy, semi-paved. There’s a fair amount of people since it’s in a metropolitan area.

I took my dog with me who was very startled by sounds that I believe may have been gun shots- I’m assuming there’s a range nearby. This may not be a good fit for dogs with anxiety. Scenic and challenging! But currently very muddy

We did a great morning hike with the dogs today. The trail was rather icy, but we survived, and we will definitely do it again. Beware of cardiac hill. It is definitely a heart pumper.

Nice trail. It was 3.2 miles long per the Garmin GPS. Trail was very muddy and slippery in spots. Did not see any elk on the trail this time, but have in the past.
