Comments: Brushy Creek Park's popularity has boomed over the past few years, especially since they opened the free waterscape during the summer. (We go here often--especially when it's boiling hot outside!)

There are a LOT of families here, so expect a variety of people on the trail--from individuals, to couples, to dogs, to groups of teens. And they are all doing something different--walking, jogging, practicing sprints, biking, or just sauntering along.

It was very pleasant, but I felt that most people on the trail were a little too serious. (Dare I say...borderline snobby?) That sounds like an odd thing to say, but everyone is usually very friendly and talkative on the hiking trails and the people here would barely crack a smile.

Regardless, the trail was very easy, well maintained, and quite pleasant. Brushy creek is fascinating with its quiet, rushing water.
