What a beautiful hike! Go early if you prefer a less populated trail, though. We set out around 11 am on Monday and it wasn't too bus then, but when we finished (just before 2pm) there were lots more people around-- too crowded for my taste. Great area for dogs (mostly off-leash, which was fine). And lots of nice areas to sit and enjoy the water. We did the whole hike, but the last 1/2 mile which ended at Camp Craft Rd, was an open, rocky uphill path-- not nearly as nice as the path along the water. We're visiting from out of town, but if I lived here I'd be a regular visitor to this trail!

Nice out and back hike! It took us 1 hr 15 min to go up to the top, then 1 hr 25 min to come back down. It was a little too populated when we first started out ( mid-morning on a Saturday), but became less crowded as we went on. A good mix of climbing steps and some level areas, pleasant scenery the whole way-- I recommend this hike,

I love this trail. Do keep in mind that there's traffic and you'll see people running; others walking and groups from 2 to even 12 people. However it's friendly, people say "Good morning" and there is room to park.

Went today with my pup on the off leash side. Loved it. Would like some signage, but the adventure was super fun. Will be going again!

Have hiked with family and with dogs, great trail!

Fun to bring your dog. Always next to the water which is nice, but after a rain it's very marshy.
