We tried to do this one in April on a Friday and the gates back to it were closed, said they are only open to the back Saturdays and Sundays so make sure you check. You can get back there but it is about a 1.5 road walk to the beginning of the trail head. We did a different one instead but will go back to do this one. We liked the area.

Easy beginner trail.

Great for kids or someone who doesn't want a challenge.

Good all around hike. Saw very few other people. A little muddy in areas and we had to cross a shallow stream at one point (it had just rained recently) but overall easy hike and well marked.

My first dedicated hike and I had a great time. I would rate this trail a little more than easy, closer to moderate.

Trail was very enjoyable. Nice and wide for the most of it. Well maintained. $5 parking fee for the park.

Nice paved, safe, and almost a 4 mile jog but can get boring. No pets allowed and no bikes.
