This is an interesting trail that runs between neighborhoods.  It is mostly paved, so it was perfect for a hike the day after rain showers.  Of course, that posed some problems where the trail was under water because the creek had risen.  The dog loved it!  4 dew claw up.  There were no people around so we let him off leash and he had a blast--wallowing in mud pits and splashing around in the creek.  The tunnels were a little creepy, but not too intimidating.  The water was high, so the water fall was very pretty.
