Pros

  • Easy hiking through varied terrain along the creek.
  • The Stone House adds interest.
  • Drop back the way you came, or mix it up a little by taking the upper path from the Stone House and dropping down along Holman lane, or any number of alternative routes.
  • Offer of post hike cake at nearby St Honore Bakery (NW 23rd & Thurman) can act as an effective motivator, see last photo.

Cons

  • The main trail is busy. Expect to sidestep joggers. With dogs. On skateboards. OK,probably not on skateboards.
