Nice easy walk with lots of shade. Was very disappointed in what they called a waterfall, filled with trash and stagnant mucky water. Nothing like the picture. But we animals you see are awesome!

love love looooooove this trail... nice and quiet and lots to do in the different areas... will for sure be making this one a weekly trip

Lots of shade, trail markers, paved, trash bins, benches to rest if necessary.

Nice place. Was very quiet and not many people. Concrete paths. But, found some “off road” paths. Enjoyable. Nice ponds and creek.

Nice little walk by the creek, pretty quiet during the weekday when I've gone. It was nice to relax and sit by the waterfall for a while.

Fun trails to explore! I usually took the Renner trail that went under 75 and connected to these trails, so parking was not an issue for me

Short trail, dirt path is nice. Popular spot on the small waterfall for photos. Side street parking in safe neighborhood.

great trail

Needs maps posted along Trail or better signage

Love the views. Saw an armadillo. Need maps.

This should be rated as Easy. Total of 37ft in elevation change, and some of the trail is paved. Out and back from trailhead at Collins to Fall Creek was only .96 miles. Trail was clean and well kept. As previous reviews have stated, there are only a handful of spots where you can’t see streets or houses. Good spot for an evening walk, but that’s about it. CoR needs to have more unpaved trails for hikers and mountain bikers. I’ll be back because it’s so close to home, but nothing special. Parking situation is also on the poor side; that being a complete lack of at the trailhead.

Nice place for a leisurely walk, but this trail is far from being "moderate." It's just a pleasant gravel trail that meanders through some thick foliage adjacent to a creek. We enjoy walking our dog here.

This is a prime spot for people to have their portraits taken, so it can get rather crowded at times. Also, during the summer and late fall it can smell rancid in certain spots, possibly because of a sewer line in the area.

This trail is a good alternative to a walk around the block. We walk here on days when local unpaved trails are muddy. Did see a bobcat on the trail, and occasionally see salamanders on the bridges. Parking can be a challenge in the lot at Renner and 75 due to the small number of spaces.

Nice trail by the creek. Most of the trail is wheelchair accessible. Frequented by morning walkers from the neighborhood, all of which greeted me with smiles.

Great distance. A little bumpy but definitely safe for road bikes. Just a few small hills. I went around a few times and that was plenty for me.

Not sure why this is rated as moderate, but has nice stream and lots of wildlife (saw variety of birds, including a hawk). It's gravel for most of the trail. For most of the walk you can tell you are in a neighborhood but pockets where you are surrounded by complete nature. Not crowded at all, there seemed to be plenty of street parking on the side streets, didn't have a problem. Overall, nice Sunday stroll or run or ride, great for beginners.

Literally just walked this trail. Pretty landscaping with paved pathways. Really like the 911 marker safety features and the amount of shade in the area. I came in from the Renner Rd, US 75 entryway and crossed the first bridge on the left I noticed that it was kind of junked out but besides that I came across a couple of people with dogs off leash which would be the only two negatives I can immediately think of. The overall experience was positive for myself and my husky and he was able to experience both paved and dirt/grass walking. Definitely worth going to!

This place is nice, opened and wide. More for walking rather than hiking. Also good place to go biking as well. Walk your dog.

Scenic and shady. Waterfall was fun. Saw lots of wildlife for the city. Parking isn't great but good trail.

Clean trail (except the usual debris near the water). Points for being mostly shaded and giving the nature feel in an urban area. Also.points for how easy it is to make the walk longer or shorter and the markers for calling 911 if needed. As far as nature trails go, this one was pretty boring. Got there very early in the morning. Didn't see or hear any birds. Only animal I saw was a snail. Not many interesting views. A good walk if you live nearby, but not worth traveling to.

Starts out paved at N Collins Ave for a short distance then turns into a natural trail. Trail listed distance wasn't accurate, it was .5 miles one way. Very scenic, too bad the trail isn't longer it would make for a really nice run.

Very easy hike. You can park right near the small waterfall. Kids and dogs can play in the water. Trail is short, partially paved. Plenty of grass and space to play ball near the waterfall. Good place for a picnic.

Beautiful park with plenty of wide concrete paths for hiking/biking/walking/running. There is also a 1 mile one way road loop that many toad cyclists work out on regularly (tues night crits). There is a stream and dirt/grass trails for hiking/running as well. Beautiful spot for a variety of activities.
Paved trail connects to other local trails.

you can run 4-6 miles on concrete paths without feeling like you are repeating a bunch easily.

Good place to go to feel alone in the middle of a city. A lot of trash but that is true of any trail in the wild these days.

Beautiful park!!! Well kept, quiet and refreshing. This is a little piece of heaven away from the traffic and the hustle and bustle of everyday life. So glad my son and I found this place.
