One of the best blazed trails. The trail guide was a delight! He could tell you every detail. It was a bit muddy in some spots. Some really good views if you take the directions from the guide.

Stunning views from the summit. Very cool variety of terrain on the way there! Only negative is that certain areas flood quite heavily so you have to trudge through water and mud. Rather than soak our socks we went barefoot through the water so if you encounter that I recommend the same!

Great trail for the whole family and dog friendly. Some moderate terrain to keep it interesting. Great scenery!

Very nice trails, views & fellow hikers.

Always a joy!

Only did a small section to start. Beautiful, relatively quiet. looking forward to going back. Will bring my walking poles next time.

It was a great workout, with an awesome view at the end, there were a bunch of hawks flying level with us at the vista, pretty cool, be careful on the descent, seemed harder than going up, but overall, would recommend it to anyone

Excellent. The Copper Mine was of particular interest.

best trails in the area. we did an 8 mile hike today. nothing to changing but good exercise

Reasonably well maintained trails but poorly marked for sure. Keep a close eye on you map during this hike or you’ll end up off trail pretty easily. Trail offers some nice foliage and a couple of nice views at the end, but really mostly just forest the whole way.

Went on a misty, foggy day so didn’t get to see a lot of the views described, but this was a consistently nice 4 mile hike. Not a lot of elevation gain and not too rocky, so pretty easy overall. Would love to go back when it’s nicer for sure.

trails are marked but no signage at cross trails to make sure you’re moving towards your starting point.

Saw three bears on Thursday October 4th about a mile in. Two scattered and the mother grunted a few times, turned her head and walked off. I slowly backed up, turned around and went back to my car. I carry bear spray whenever I enter the woods and I highly recommend it to everyone else. I didn't have to use it but it was very happy that I had it during this encounter, just in case. I'll be back one day but I wont be hiking on trails with no cars in the parking lot any more.

Nice trail to kill a few hours at. Tripod Rock is always a cool little spot and there are a few views but they’re not particularly impressive. Some nice uphill hiking and the trail on the side of the reservoir are super refreshing.

I love reading people's reviews on what they see in the woods. It is the woods so you may see bear, snakes, deer, raccoons etc. You may even get bitten by bugs as well. Expect it, be prepared or just stay home. Anyway i was hesitant to do this hike because of the lame views but decided anyway because its not far from home. The views are very lame in fact. Lucy's overlook has too many trees in the front of it and the high tension wires at other vistas take away from the charm. At 4 or more miles much better vistas can be found at a shorter distance near by at other trails. Just my opinion of Pyramid Mountain is don't understand all the hype.

Great family hike!! 5 miles
Well marked, Wear boots, Very muddy! After a little rain.
Red stripe trail is a 100ft walk down a rocky trail. Walking sticks will come handy.

An ok trail there was not much of a scenery just a long trail walk. The trail marks need to be more clear we had to stop a couple of times trying to figure out where the marks are.

Had a great time

This Park is so nice,You can expend hours of pure Nature Contact. Big Trees,creeks,nice trails,well marked. overall You will enjoy your visit.

Love it. Lots of choices, all abilities, Beautiful, serene. Dog and bike friendly.

I love this trail. It follows the stream to a beautiful waterfall. After the waterfall it follows the stream up to the second lake than u can take the trail around the lake. Haven’t finished the entire trail , but I plan on it very soon. What a great trail

Easy hike. it should not be included in hard hikes.

Overall good hike but it does cross through a swap which gets muddy after a rainy day.

Well marked. Easy and moderate trails. Alongside the lake. Not too isolated or crowded.

Had a great time! The trails are blazed well & the reserve is in great condition. Only compliant is that some of the trails are close to people’s backyards; perimeter of the park is close to private property. Overall watch out for frogs & chipmunks!

Very organized and clear view. I enjoyed this trail with my girlfriend and my hike buddies. Watch out for the descending rocks and deep mud. Very fun hike

Boardwalk section very easy, Heaven Hill Farm a good place to stop and get ice cream mid way or afterwards. Part after you cross the road was the busiest section for us, very steep- took about an hour to get up to the top. Very rocky but views are totally worth it! Saw quite a few snakes a long the way so just be wary.

The trail has clear marks and some interesting boulders. The level is relatively easy.

Too many people in the beginning. Awesome chicken of the woods mushrooms. Brightest and biggest we have ever seen.

Beautiful fall views
