My dog and I hiked this trail for the first time today. It is about a mile of walking down a clearing of power lines. We couldn't find the pine loop trail and ended up at the housing development. I decided to turn around and saw on the way back that it was roped off. I'm assuming that was it because there wasn't a sign. The trail head behind the middle school starts out nice but it doesn't provide a trail map. We'll go back to this trail because it's so close to home but to be honest not very impressed on this trip.
IMO this is a great little trail. The majority of it is asphalt, but there is a small section that is dirt / grass. It's very quiet for being behind an apartment complex and there is usually always someone on the trail, either walking or jogging. I photograph as a hobby so I was pleasantly surprised at the abundance of birds along this trail, which is why this trail is a favorite of mine.

Great place for hiking/walking (except u hear the cars).
Very challenging for biking cause of the terrain. Didn't see much wildlife.

More than a little disappointed. Mostly open area with little to no shade and a consistently unremarkable landscape. Bummer.

Very quiet and peaceful
this is my first trail and me and my family love it... we ride our mountain bikes thru the flats and trails... non stop fun and excitement plus get great views of wildlife... other reviews on here seem to be on point! so grab your helmet, water bottle, and be ready for anything lol
