Nice trail year-round. Can make an 8 mile loop, 4 mile loop, or shorter with an out & back. Mostly bikers from Walnut Grove trailhead. Peaceful.

Nice and easy trail. We had a little trouble figuring out where to park.

Nice, easy scenic trail. Great to bring the kids with you. Lots of connectors to make the trail as short or long as you want it.

Nice, easy, paved trail. Always well maintained. Good place to walk in the mornings. Pretty in the fall.

This is my go-to trail in the area. The yellow trail stays dry and follows the Wolf River. Lots of bikers, hikers, runners, and families use this trail. Really good for an easy, non-technical trail.

This is one of my favorite places to walk my dog in. It's quiet and very beautiful. I like to stick to the paved areas here since mountain bikers tend to dominate the dirt.

Great place to start mountain biking (as I did). The trails are fun but watch out for sand accumulation when the river floods. I'm not a fan of trying to ride a bike through it.

Love the trail i enjoy it more during the weekdays the trail is kind of busy on the weekend with bike riding activity so if you like to jog while you listening to your favorite music you need Stay on the right side of the trail and pay more attention to your left side from bikers passing by

I had a nice morning hike out here. Sometimes it's difficult to tell which path you're on, but the paths are easy to spot. It was a little busy. Lots of trail runners. Still, for a nice nature hike on a Saturday morning, it's a great option

Overall pretty nice. Didn't exactly know where I was headed because no trails are really marked. But the trails themselves are very nice. Some inclines but mainly just curvy goodness. Definantly going out there again!

Trailhead is located just south of agri-center off Germantown rd at wolf river, and ends at walnut grove bridge over wolf river. This trail comprises of 3 seperate trails (yellow, blue, white trail). I take yellow trail which is more sandy, and follows along the bank of wolf river with nice views to super nice foot and bike bridge across wolf river approx. 2.5 miles down, then follow blue trail which is further inland and more muddy after rains back to trailhead for nice 5 mile loop. This trail is heavily used on weekends by runners and mt. bikers due to being practically in heart of the city!
