Great Trail. Saw Deer, and other wildlife. Well marked.
Great trail. Marked well. TONS of seed ticks. We didn't have on strong enough bug spray and had close to a hundred ticks on our legs, inside our shoes and in our shirts.
Great trail. I saw two deer. Awesome workout.. Completed in about 2 1/2 hours. Some areas were great for running others a little to rocky. Overall a wonderful trail to hike!
It was a good 2 1/2 hours of straight hiking. Me and my girlfriend found two box turtles and that was fun.
Nice trail, and great to run.
The trail was perfect for me and my lil' frenchie! He had a blast! Some of the trail was blocked off due to the recent storms, but we managed to make the most of it! Will definitely be back!
Awesome trail super easy to follow and not to harsh on my wife who is new to hiking, not to many "wow" moments but lots of forest to explore as well!
This review is for the North Loop Trail; I couldn't find it listed on this site.
I chose the 2-mile North Loop Trail because I was short on time; I'd like to return and hike the Opossum Hollow Trail.
The North Loop Trail is nicely marked throughout, blazed in yellow. It offered good variety and some steady incline. I spotted two deer and a woodpecker. I had the trail to myself--saw no other hikers.
It was tricky to find the trail head; look for it directly behind the playground equipment that is adjacent to the campground.
Trail was nicely marked with red blaze and well maintained. Also had a few shortcuts marked along the way that headed back to the trailhead. Terrain was a mix of dirt, large rocks and roots but fairly easy to maneuver on foot. Several bikes passed us along the way but everyone was very respectful and excused themselves as they rolled through. Trail length was actually 6.2 miles from the trailhead sign and back but info board reads 5.5 miles.
Marked out good.
