Great location to run. A bit short on people. Great place to run.

I wish it were not paved but otherwise it's meticulously maintained with a water point at about the 1 mile mark. not too many people on it. Dog friendly with poop bags at the entrance. excellent trail for backpacking, ruckmarching, and running. it says it's for bikes as well, although I didn't see any and that seems rather hazardous with the number of pedestrians.

Came here the first time to go on a trial walk but was completely fenced off. Second time tried to go fishing here but both piers where completely packed. So if you like peace and quite then I don't recommend this place.

There is no official traihead. There are many entry points on the creek, most being adjacent to residential areas, or off main roads. This creek runs directly behind my house and is heavily used in the summer months for tubing. Expect a steep descent into the channel and a short portage. There is a short hiking loop between South Main sub division and Parton rd. maybe 1.5 miles of easy terrain with 1 small water crossing. Be aware of your surroundings since the locals go to the train trestle to shoot. There is also a small camping area at the train trestle where teenagers party in the summer. also watch for ATVS on this trail. UPDATE: I just checked the trail yesterday and part of it was washed out by hurricane Matthew. you can still make it but there is a 20 foot deep water filled gully you have to traverse, which will be too much for children and most dogs.
