Nice trail would have given it a 4-5 but the trail had a lot of ice on it. Other than that I enjoyed it
Great vistas and a great wooded run with some challenging inclines.
Went here today and unfortunately my recorded trail didn't save correctly. It's a great workout with lots of hills. I enjoyed the hike and loved the little unmarked trails.
Trails are not labeled well and are very confusing. Not my favorite for running.
Very scenic with the varied environments! Trails are challenging at times with good uphill climbs and wonderful views. Seems longer than 3 miles as you can meander through the woods on offshoots of the main trail. Will definitely come back in fall and winter.
One of my faves. So many trails to take. I've done 5+ miles here at a time and that's only a fraction of what's there if you hit it all.
Much more than 3.5 miles here. A whole network of MTB, hike, trail running trails.
This beautiful pair of parks is heavily used by trail runners, mountain bikers, geocachers, birders, etc. It's popular for a reason and is great year around. It's not flat, and the hills can be steep depending on the route chosen. No camping allowed. GREAT singletrack.
