on Rocky Woods Trail

One word. Awesome! Trail was very clean and well marked. My only issue was that I was looking down A LOT. Someone else mentioned that this was the trail to sprain an ankle. I agree! Take it easy and be careful on this trail.

All in all I highly recommend this trail to anyone and everyone.

To say there is a waterfall is a bit of a stretch but the area has a lot of neat things to see, is dense with forest, and had plenty of trail options. You don't feel like you're in a city at all.

Nice quiet trail even though there were several cars parked at the trailhead. If you're walking beware of horse manure. Watch your step. Otherwise very scenic and shady. You will need the bug spray if hiking in spring/summer. In some spots the trail is not very wide so be careful when bikers are passing. Wear good shoes as some parts are very rocky and can turn muddy.

The trail is not as well maintained as it used to be, and the entrances, especially easternmost, are wrought with human detritus: tires, garbage bags, etc. It's a nice short hike with great limestone outcropping to explore.

Great trail. Very scenic views! There are lots of stairs in one section so be prepared. Definitely want to wear good shoes as there are rocky parts that can cause you to slide. Heavily traveled so you can feel safe walking alone. Get there early if you want a parking space, especially if the weather is nice. It does get crowded.

Challenging enough to give a good workout but not a difficult trail at all. Nice inclines and beautiful scenery. The sections that are heavily wooded are beautiful.

Very pretty trail. It's a mix of paved, gravel and dirt. There are moderate inclines but nothing too steep. The trails are well marked. I really enjoy walking there.

Trailhead: across from the buffalos on E Park you'll see a small 4 car parking lot with tiny pond right by it, park, the trail starts there.
This trail is super easy to get lost on!!
If you're wanting a remote trail run with low traffic and low maintenance this is it!! You start on a well distinguished path then there are tons of off shoots from the trails to take! Some led nowhere, but that was half the fun!

warnings: you WILL get spider webs in your face
high risk of rolling tour ankles with the narrow rocky trail
if you're running you probably will get lost
if you end up on a small gravel road, you'll be able to find another small trail that leads back into the trees!
Have fun exploring!

Nice flat path and scenic. If your looking for solitude this may not be for you. Very popular and always busy, not overly crowded but a good stream of walkers, runners, bikers, and roller bladers. One of my favorite places for an evening walk. Bring the bug spray!!

Great trail, not too overgrown and a perfect distance for beginning hikers. Can be ran, use caution due do rocks and roots. Not highly travelled. There is a creek crossing which is hard to cross with out getting wet, had to use a fallen tree to get across. Trail is well marked and shaded.

If you get "lost" don't worry all trails connect together, if you're willing to hike the eleven miles. Suggest to start early if you want to make the full hike. Some sections are overgrown and other sections are very open and pleasant. The highlight of the whole trail is the natural bridge (more of a natural tunnel)
