Trail shared by Sarah Ilagan

There's a ton of tree cover in this area, so the route feels very secluded and quiet.

Overview

Tons of tree cover so the area feels very secluded and quiet.

Description

There are well marked trails in the parking, making navigation simple.

You'll begin by initially heading east on the Rowlett Creek Trail, which soon hooks to the west. Continue on this route for a little. To make a loop, at the westernmost point, you'll need to hop on to Willow Springs Trail for a bit. This will eventually intersect with Rowlett Creek Trail again, on which you'll retrace your steps back to the trailhead.

Boardwalks in lower-lying areas help to keep feet dry.

Trail-users beware...these river-bottom trails tend to retain lots of water.
