No shortage of miles to horseback, walk, jog, ride bike. We love the location for jogging on the weekends in the colder season, after a rain especially with no dust. We can jog miles.

Went with my family in mid October. Not sure why the description shows the hike is 5.6mi, it is half that distance to the falls and back(2.8mi round trip). My entire family(me, wife, 5yr old and 10mo old) found it to be easy. The 10mo old was in a backpack carrier and she slept most of the way, so I am guessing it was easy for her. We went further up the trail to the river otter trail and it had steep shoulders in some parts and we had to hold our 5yr olds hands.

Took the hike today to the falls. It was very nice but very easy and much quicker to get to the falls than I expected after reading all the reviews here. I definitely will start around 8 or 9 am next time and do some further trails. Can't wait!

Fabulous and relatively easy. Rolling hills with a few big ones here and there. Shady, scenic and bathrooms on the trail!!!! Love it, it's my favorite.

Nice park. We went on a Thursday afternoon. We saw very few people and the parking was free which is nice. There are many different trail options. You can do a quick loop or a much longer hike that could take a few hours. There are a good amount of covered trails and a few exposed ones(avoid - they're like a gravel road). I'll be back again, on my mountain bike.

Every kind of terrain you need. Be prepared for the uphill on the way back. Bring plenty of water and ask the Ranger what would be suitable for the kind of day you want. There are many different options on this hike. Follow your map and explore away. We hiked 7miles in about 2.5hrs total, stopping at the waterfall for about a half hour. Loved it!
