It is a well paved trail for easy to moderate hikers. I went on a cool morning and enjoyed myself I would not recommend it during a hot day for there is little to no shade. The views are kind of bland but not altogether terrible. I did see plenty of water birds including an osprey and even a gator.

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.

took my 3 kids on a hike, they loved it! they get to run out energy, mommy got some exercise- watch out for the bicyclists though if you're walking, most people were very friendly. will definitely be going back.

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

it is a great trail for mountain biking!

Really neat seeing the difference between before the rain(dry) and after the rain

The trailhead was really hard to find. It's behind the school. The part along the creek was pretty the remaining was just a muddy track in a loop around a field. We saw cranes. No restrooms seen but a nice picnic area.

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

this is an update on the trail...
the trail is flooded out on many parts make some areas unpassable due to all the rain, and some of the bridges are washed out... needs some repairs.

Awesome easy trail

This was my very first trail hike and I enjoyed it very much. We used the trail entrance by the middle school and followed the trail along 417. I def plan on going back.
