Three mile loop that is part of the Hidden Diversity Multi-Use Trail System - Piney Road Access. They call it that because of the diverse combination of geography and anture that can be seen along the way.

Nice, easy hike. No major must-sees, but the overlook is pretty, and there is the potential for some really stellar views during leaf-off.

The dog and I finished this pretty quickly (about an hour), so we did the Dutton Loop as well. It was our second time on the Dutton Loop, and I've got to recommend doing both trails on the same day. The contrast between being up on the ridge, and then down in the hollow really highlights the different terrain and plants in this area, and makes both trails more enjoyable.

We hiked this with our dogs. The trail is well marked and well maintained. The overlook on Beaver Lake was pretty, it's a nice stop for a picnic or to just hang out awhile. We did the 3 mile look, then hooked onto the Dutton Hollow Trail that intersects with it.

Hiked on a chilly winter day. Encountered about 20+ cyclists, 4 folks on horseback and about 6 hikers. Definitely a diverse group of enthusiasts if anything. I have hiked this loop with my school age Daughter before. The lake doesn't really provide a great place to cool off but the view is beautiful. The dropoff to the water is a bit abrupt in high water levels.
Have always taken the loop in a counterclockwise fashion and it is a good brisk workout. Not much to see at this time other than a woodpecker or two. Always very well maintained and the trails well defined..

A well maintained and nice trail. A word of caution though...having just hiked this trail today in very hot conditions I realized (belatedly) that distance from the trailhead is 4.6 miles total...NOT 3 miles. The loop is 3 but the trailhead to get to the loop adds another 1.6.

Recently rode this trail again and enjoyed it more so than before. The pines are nice especially when the sun is lowering in the evening sky.

Boring. The only nice part was coming down to the lake cove view on the middle.

This trail hikes longer than advertised, by the the time I got down to the lake and a few short side looks, the GPS showed over five miles. Great hike that I highly recommend, moderate is accurate but if you go slow it is almost easy since the trail is so well defined. After all, it is used by mountain bikes regularly.

This loop is about three miles, but the total walk from the parking lot is probably 4. Although part of hidden diversity, this loop and the adjacent loop are really stand-alone hikes. The parking lot is accessed from the blacktop, and has rest room facilities and water. This is a moderate hike, with probably 400 feet of elevation change on a very well maintained trail. Great woods views, nothing else really remarkable on this loop. This is a great jogging trail.
