Nice trail, Great Family Hike
Great for easy to moderate trail running. Not extremely technical but fun for beginners. 3 loops are approximately 10.82 miles. The 3.4 mile trail loop is not heavily used by hikers especially in late fall and winter. There are shorter hikes that will loop if take the yellow trail to the blue.
Wonderful family hike
Good for first time hikers
Did the larger loop with the blue markers and at times the road was very narrow and there are lots of bikers on these trails to where you had to stand in the woods to let them pass. The trail and bridges were beautiful. People were super nice and I had quite a few conversations. The dog very much enjoyed the long walk.
This was a wide, flat trail for the most part. It seemed like more of a training ground for middle-aged mountain bikers than a hiking trail. Most of the stream beds were completely dry. Not a lot of nature to be seen: 1 toad, 1 turtle, and 1 squirrel. Lots of spiders and butterflies, though. It was a nice starter hike but I don't think we need to go there again.
Great trail to ran on. Surprisingly quiet.
Mostly level; great for beginners and families; some bikers
Nice flat trail. Great for the family and our dog. Follow the blue markers for the longer trail. Very quiet. About 3 miles.
