Very pretty. Very green and leafy, even during the winter time. Good signage. Straight forward trail with lots of steps. Going from north to south is easy, but going south to north you get some elevation climbing. Of course it's not near the level of the Natural Trail at River Place, but it's still a good hike.

There was one section, though, where I thought the trial looked a little thin. Then I noticed the actual trail went to the west (I was going from north to south). The steps were a little overgrown and thus hidden, and people have been taking a short-cut (the "thin trail"). I'd urge everyone to try and stay on the actual trail. It's the smallest little cut-off, but still it's good to keep the actual trail in tact.

Beautiful as always, but I haven't been in 2 years, so I didn't realize the creek was dried up. We still had a blast though!
