We had a great visit! Super quiet and peaceful. We had no problems finding the spot, some of the signage was a little confusing so we got lost along the trail. But the creek was awesome and our dog really enjoyed herself.

Super fun trek thru the woods with my reactive foster pup. He loved it and so did I! Recommend bug spray and /or long sleeves/ pants. We'll be back!

My deaf and reactive dog loved it! He got to have an adventure without anxiety of running into other dogs. There was plenty of shade and even some shallow water to splash in to stay cool. We plan on visiting again in the future!

We will definitely be back!! Beautiful trails, my dog lived his best life for an hour romping through the woods and in the water. Wear hiking boots!

Our dog love adventuring these trails. Lots of things to smell and plenty of room for her to run. She especially loved the water areas. The rainbow markers were easy to follow.

Our dog had SUCH a blast at this location! We just recently adopted him, and have never "tested" him off leash - this was the perfect place to do so. The trail/woods themselves were clean, well kept, and marked!

Dogs had a great time. Humans had a hard time finding the trail markers. Need some maintenance but still a great morning!

Great wooded area with a creek for our dog to explore. The trail markers are super cute multi-color blocks. Was a bit of a scavenger hunt to find them at a couple points after crossing the creek, but that added to the fun.

This is a beautiful trail along a small creek that backs up to Jordan Lake. Pay close attention to the trail markers that are a little bit difficult to see at first. My pups loved this spot!

Our dogs had a blast and loved playing in the creek! After reading other reviews, we wore shoes that could get wet and had no issues at all. We did hear a dog barking in the distance but it wasn’t in sight and our dogs weren’t phased by it. Would definitely go again!

Our pup thoroughly enjoyed this spot! Wooded trail, make sure to wear appropriate shoes/clothing. The creek crossing was fun for our dog ❤️ beautiful property. We could hear barking dogs (never saw or encountered any) so if you have a dog that is triggered by that, just make a note.

We had so much fun at this spot. It’s varied terrain with lots of water and room to explore. Wear boots if it’s rained recently because a good part is adjacent to wetlands. But in general, it’s pristine, and everything went smoothly. Thanks for sharing your land!

This trail was lovely and we had lots of fun, the owner was so kind and helpful! The only part that may be a little difficult is crossing the creek but we made it across 😄 I definitely recommend visiting with your pups

Great spot for exploring. Trail is marked well leading you across a creek and to the ATV trail. Owners were very accommodating and showed us the trail entrance. My little boxer had a great time exploring the area and playing in the creek.

Very cool place, hosts were so nice and showed us to the trail head as well as brought out a big water bowl for our pups after. It says it in the post but the rainbow markers lead you to the trail head and if you follow them there’s no issues finding it.

This place was so fun!!! I have a dog who is a farm dog through and through. She had the best time just running through the field and playing in the fall grass. There were shady spots with chairs to rest, access to water, a restroom, and poop bags available. And of course it was lovely to see some horses. All were very friendly and seemed to enjoy some pets. They were great with my dog who loves horses and stuck their noses over the fence for some quick boops. The host was very nice and gave clear directions. I will definitely be coming again, especially when the weather cools down more and we can stay longer!!
