About 1.5 miles of forested walking trails with biking trails throughout, with connection to additional in Creekside. Walkers may need to be careful of bikes. Trails generally well maintained but may have some trouble after heavy rains.

It is nice that the reserve is available for taking a short hike. It is basic, no amenities, the trails are marked. With the growth and development in the area, places like this will have increasing importance.
