“This out-and-back trail climbs gently along a babbling creek with undulating terrain.”— Emily Goodin
From the parking lot, you immediately step across Fourmile Canyon Creek on a few large stable stones that trail maintenance staff provided. You'll encounter approximately 25 similar crossings during the 1.7 mile upstream run. As you progress, you'll intermittently climb short and somewhat steep sections, often on stone stairs set into the hills. In a few spots, you might want to hold hands with children due to a bit of exposure, but in general the trail is safe for kids to explore with some freedom, and the creek is shallow.
After about 1/2 mile at the ~8th crossing, a short uphill section leads to a stone bench where you might want to stop for a snack, or sit quietly and listen to the trickling water below. When you arrive at the end of the trail, there are some nearby rocks where you can sit and have a little picnic before heading back the way you came.
Trail maps such as Google Maps show the trail extending beyond the 1.7 mile marker, but this is private property. The end of the trail is clearly marked with a sign.
