    Nice hiking trail

    can be a bit crowded so something to be aware of if you have a dog that doesn’t do well in that environment but if you go during the week or on “off season” times it’s great!

    Great place

    Really like this dog friendly park. Multiple places to take your pup in the water. Plan on making many more visits in the future.

    Amazing spot!

    Trails are mostly shaded, well kept and plenty of spots to get your dog in the creek! Just make sure you yield to the horses that ride through the park :)

    Great Place!

    We enjoyed this place! There was free parking and when you walk up there is a information station with a map (that we didn’t grab), you can go left to the flat trail or right up to the difficult section. The trail was full of roots, steep stairs, and overall pretty difficult. We loved it tho! I was able to find numerous places to let Evo off leash in the water. I would highly recommend this place for dogs and adventure alike.
