Wonderful garden trail. It was little early to enjoy the flowers blooming by the trail. But still enjoyable for families.

One of the most poorly mapped out trails on this app. The bottom loop portion of this trail doesnt exist nor ever looked like a trail ever did...as you're just bush whacking in the woods to a deer hunting blind. This trail also doesn't include the paved trail through the woods that has all of the informational & historical storyboards that explain the significance of this place. This nature preserve itself is really nice and highly recommend visiting here...just wish a non-idiot would have mapped the trails out on this app because the actual trails in this place are nice and well marked & well maintained.

pretty great trail. gets crowded in nice weather, with good reason. side trails are worth checking out too. very scenic, rock formations, old quarries, rail bridge. main path is wide and maintained.

A landscaped small area. Costs $10 a person. Great variety of plants. Much better places in the area for natural landscapes

Trail covered with leaves, difficult to follow in places, a lot of the flint covered. It would be better hiking this mid summer. History of Flint Ridge is awesome.

My low review rating is not so much for this place as it is for the idiot who mapped this trail...as they skipped 3 of the top main attractions (Daweswood House, Dawes Memorial & the Observation Tower that overlooks the famous Dawes Arboretum Hedge Letters). I didnt mind paying the $10 fee like some of the other clown reviewers mentioned because it's a National Register Historic Place...plus it's a truly remarkable place to visit. Do the extra 1.5+ miles to see the extra attractions I mentioned above. You can also even add another 1.5+ miles if you walk through the tunnel to Arboretum East to see the Hopewell Mound & Gorge Overlook.

Paved trail. Chestnut trail is primitive and challenging, but no mud, no scrambling. Only climbed to peak of Chestnut and turned back before doing the downhill due to losing the daylight.

Beautiful! Tried to do the unimproved trails under the tunnel but must’ve gotten turned around because I pooped and never say the gorge. The old cemetery is cool, loved the lookout and the Japanese garden but did not see everything.
