Not well marked at all. I'm an avid trailer and got lost twice the first time around. Luckily, other hikers were very helpful. An absolutely beautiful trail once you find your way.
Not well marked at all!
Came here with great company and has a blast. The trails were moderate, but were a ton of fun due to the small footing challenge.
There was a whole lot of horses all over the trails back in Evansburg.
The water appeared very clear and the dog had a blast putting her feet into the water.
Unfortunately, the camera had lost battery so we were unable to take any pictures...we will have to go back again because the park was stunning.
not well marked later in the trail, easy to less moderate difficulty, varied terrain, lots of guns shots on Saturday am, more popular later in the day.
really pretty trail but at times was not well marked.
Very pretty and relatively easy hike. Was NOT well marked at all which was frustrating.
This is a great trail that can be added on to using a variety of additional hiking and horseback trails within the park. I would not rate this trail as easy but rather as moderate as there are several decent up and downs on both the north and south side of the creek. Plus the footing on much of the trail is dodgy (loose rocks, roots, wet areas, drop offs, etc.) and will force you to pay attention to your footwork. Since parts of the loops are shared by horseback riders it can get pretty chopped up and muddy especially after a storm. Very happy to have this park and trail system just a few miles from my house.
Great nature hike with different sights and terrain. We love coming here with our dogs on weekends. Some of the trails aren't marked well but they are well maintained!
The biggest issues are the horse weekends when it's hard to walk with dogs because there are so many horses on the trails and occasionally people let their dogs off the leash. The policy of the park is that horses stick to their own trails (they normally do) and dogs are on a leash (most are off the leash). Many times we have had to take our dogs off the main trail while other people leash up their dogs, which is annoying and disrespectful to others. The Park Rangers should address this.
Good trail, well maintained. A lot of sections are shared with horses which means tons of horse poop on the trail. Watch your step! Good access to the creek and the dogs loved splashing around and cooling off.
Beautiful area with access to river along the skippack trail. The 5 mile loop is not marked well and we needed to double back in a few sections. This app was a great help.
