The reason I come here is because it is 5 minutes from where I live. It's an okay place to walk your dog/run but make sure you come when the sun is not strong. There is barely any trees so very little shade if any. Also the map makes it seem like there is a creek. Didn't see any running water. Only nasty stagnant puddles. The trail is well marked and wide. Also there are basic exercise stops throughout which is nice. I would not drive more than 10 minutes to come here as there are other better trails.

Super fun trail. Crank, crank, crank, lean back and huck! Pray for good luck.

Pretty, lots of creek crossing. Take your bug spray though, and if you're bringing dogs bring a towel.

Great it you're looking for a challenging trail! The only reason I'm rating it a 4 is just because I was expecting the total distance of the trail to be 5 miles but it seems like the only way you're getting 5 miles out of it, is if you count the distance you go back. Definitely would recommend! Bring good shoes, you're going to be going up a lot of stairs.
