Aside from the not fully improved steps down from the trailhead just behind the school (more of a scramble, really) the path is easy to follow. Not overgrown at all, just a few places a tall fella liike me had to duck. The creek is pretty, and the two ponds (or is it one long pond, hard to tell from the trail) are worthy waypoints. The kids (ages 3.5 and 6) enjoyed sitting on the old pier and looking at the fish and turtles. We stopped at the final dam, but it seems like it would be easy to cross just downstream and hook up with the Mountain View hike.
