Pack a picnic lunch, sunscreen and have a good pair of walking shoes on.
This is a great springtime hike with lots of shade trees for cover. Be aware of runners that often use this trail for training. There are no bathrooms, so you might want to stop in Ruch at the grocery store along the way. That is where we usually go for potty breaks.
Anytime you can get a hike in during the week will be great, because there won't be as many people.
