This is my second time to the preserve. The trails are well-maintained and it's convenient to where I live. There are informative signs and way-points throughout and a fair variety of canopy and undergrowth for the nature lover. It's immersed in a populated area and is usually too heavily trafficked by people, dogs and horses too see much wildlife, but the birds in the canopy remain present. There are no water features or vistas here - not a "destination" trail, but it is an excellent place to meander when you just want to hike through the woods!

Great trail for all skill levels. Enjoyed this hike with my little dog yesterday. Well maintained with lots of signs and mile markers. Parking lot is big for horse trailers along with a sani can at the trail head.

Great for mountain biking with some man-made bike trails. Beautiful on a sunny day and in the rain. Easy go get to.

The walk was nice. Not very scenic if you're looking to take pictures. Overall good experience.

Easy to follow trails, signs that easily mark all the routes. Good amount of parking, great for dogs but no trash cans, Honey-buckets at the begging. If taking horse/bike/hiker trails then plenty wide, We didn't take the hikers only trails. Informational signs to know more about what you're looking at, and clearings good for picnics.

Went ALL over these trails today - pretty great variety of terrain with lots of clear, informative signage and well-maintained tracks. My favorite parts were getting into some old growth and the quarter mile that was so dense and the trail so narrow, it was like finding your way through a maze. I also found it super cool that all the trails are looped so you can make your hike as long or as short as you'd like
Special Perk: no pass required

Drawbacks:
1. If you're not on the trails designated for hikers only, you wind up on super narrow trails with lots of blind corners with horses and mountain bikers - choose your path carefully
2. You can see homes and hear road traffic on many parts of the trail
3. If you're a destination hiker, this is not the trail for you, the loops are pleasant and some stretches of old growth are particularly scenic, but there are no water features or grand views to be had here

This is one of my regulars, it's close to home and great for a quick trail run or getting my girls out for a hike.

First summer hike with the pups and teens. Chose to stay close too home. Our bad! Not exactly what we hoped for. We just walked in the woods for two hours with only one cool discovery. We heard there was a lake but we never found it. No mention on the posts in the woods to even direct you to it. Must be a typo. Great hike for small kids.

This is a largely easy trail that is well worn and mostly shaded. The main trail has several foot only trails that circle back to the main trail, which seemed to enable hikers to make the hike as short or as long as you like. There were some bikers, but the turns, roots, and rocks really keep them from going fast. There were several water puddles/well worn bike spots, your feet are likely to get wet.
