This was a nice easy hike with some interesting features. The creek bed was dry when I went, but I bet this place is pretty nice during wet weather. Didn't see a single person the entire time, which I thought was odd for a saturday. The terrain was nice and rocky, but my favorite features were the tunnels and drainage ditches. I'm weird like that I guess. All in all this was a great stroll through the woods with some interesting man-made additions.
