This was a nice surprise!  A deer kept running from us further back down the creek both directions.  Several large birds were back there.  Would have been nicer if the water was running but still easily gets a 3.  Expected it to connected with the long San Gabriel bike trail but it never does (may be across the river by that point).   Would get a 5 for solitude but a few houses are visible up above (but they are really nice).  When you are finished, take a left on Booty (the road you came in on) until it ends, you'll be just below the dam and there is the San Gabriel bike trail to Georgetown to the left and another path thru the woods to the right that make hook up with the Goodwater on the North side of Lake Georgetown.  FYI Booty changes names many times as it passes the airport and 35 but it is a shortcut to Berry Springs Park.
