Awesome, peaceful, great trails!

It was flooded but if I’m ever back in the area I’d give it another try.

Nice short walk with peace and quiet
Can experience good isolation

The history and the scenery make this a great experience!

Ran trail 12 Aug 2018. Paved trail until Huebner overpass. At that point it becomes an unimproved road of crushed gravel/dirt under construction with chain link fencing on both sides that is intermittently open. It is very traverseable and a few mountain bikers passed me. No overhead cover along the construction route. There were some existing single track dirt paths that I took out northbound instead of the road.

Past 1604 the trail becomes sketchy. I crossed another runner and he said I could follow a single track trail right or the power lines north. I followed the power lines and the trail was decent until the last section before the turn around point. If you stick to the power lines you'll be good.

Great scenic trails. Not too much shade from the sun, so I'd recommend going on a nice fall day or an overcast day.

Great views and little traffic. Easy to bike.

a little dirty at the beginning and had some people sleeping in their car in the parking lot early in the morning. Other than I enjoyed my run there and will probably go again.

This was a great trail but got hard to navigate midway through. The first several miles were paved, then going under the overpass, the path was lost and difficult to navigate. In addition to no clearly marked trail, there was a lot of debris removal involving tractors and lumber moving trucks which made us need to deviate from the trail. Then, laid out path from the app was blocked by equipment, so we needed to walk in the irrigation tunnel or go half a mile out of the way to cross the overpass. We decided to go through the irrigation tunnel because today was a sunny day without a cloud in the sky to worry about flash floods. Maybe if I try again in a couple of months, the construction equipment along the Greenbelt will be gone and the trail will be clear.

Lots of homeless. There is a river only .2 of trail. Covered in trash. Shouldn’t be on the list. Jogging next to freeway and under the freeway. Very unsafe. Surprised I can talk about it

It was a nice short hike. My dogs enjoyed putting their feet in the water. Just hated the fact that there was soooo much poison ivy.

Beautiful nearly all year round. numerous trail entry ways so that you can carry your experience each time you are in the trail.

Went February and weather was good. The unpaved trail is alright and links up to river, but not moderate trail and really easy. The paved trail is nice and good for beginners. Next time I'm bring my bike to enjoy more.

Great walking trail.. Very few people on a weekday. It is posted that dogs are allowed on leash. It's nice they have signs for local trees and plants.

Park was nice enough. Saw a homeless person shaving and someone attempted to break into my car so I’d rate this trail as pretty unsafe. I walked it today at noon - which should have been a safe time but will have to replace my driver side window since it was cracked during the break in attempt.

Beautiful trail system with lots of natural features and nice places to stop and relax. Also a nice place to kayak up and down the river using the convenient lock system.
