Easy dog/horse/kid friendly set of trail loops. Everything is clearly marked and easy to follow with maps posted at major intersections. Each loops seems to be about a mile, so if you do them all it's around 5 or so, but there's little elevation change so non of it is particularly challenging. They're supposed to be expanding it at some point in the future...

It’s a nice walk and mostly shady too. You’ll get some good exercise with this couple hour hike to the Hidden Falls overlook. But you might want to wait until the cooler months. Summer time heat will get in the upper 90’s plus, so bring lots of water. Spring should be a nice treat with wildflowers. The Hidden Falls was flowing nicely even in late August. And the trail to the Falls was well marked and well maintained. So far I haven’t done the other trails, other than to the Hidden Falls overlook. I look forward to trying more of the hikes in this park.

I rate this with three stars because the trail to the actual falls remains closed. I did enjoy hiking the other areas, though.
