Lots of great finds for a mushroomer!

I'm surprised there aren't more reviews of this. It's a beautiful trail that follows the reservoir and has plenty of spurs to the water for a gorgeous view.

Sam's Grave is the more lightly-trafficked of the two. I'd rate it a moderate, not easy. There are some grassy bits, but for the most part it sticks to the forest, so you have a good chance of seeing wildlife. When it dips toward the water, you get panoramic views of the lake. It's one of the best local trails I've hiked.

Glen Ellen is easier and moderately trafficked. It seems to be popular for runners and bikers in the evenings.One thing to note is that part of it goes right past people's backyards, so it isn't as scenic. I ended up getting back on Sam's Grave instead of completing the loop.

One last thing: The trail-head can be a little hard to find, if you don't know where you're looking. If you park on the side of Seminary Ave with everyone else, you have to cross at the light to get to the path. I definitely wandered around a little!

great trail but a little muddy after rain.

Good trail. I took the yellow trail (the 4 mile one) and it was peaceful, only saw a couple of other people towards the beginning and end of the trail. There is a nice little bench and pond area about halfway where you can sit and relax. Definitely will do it again

it was fun and we had to fight it through

Great walking through the creek

Was okay...but honestly it could be marked much more clearly. We were always a little confused about which trail led where!

Very pretty park in the middle of a residential area. Trails are marked but its easy to get on different trails throughout hike.

Hike is lame but there is an informative nature center

I appreciated the variety of terrain (rock, packed dirt, even soft dirt/leaves). Some nice views. Parts are really overgrown and others are just a rock road. There is one really, really nice long hill if you need to train for that. Unfortunately the map shows that trails continue beyond this mapped out and back but they are unmarked and barely visible, and eventually completely run out even tho the map say they are there.

This is a loop trail combining the loggers trail and the yellow trail at this park. It is visually appealing as you feel like you are away from the city. Unfortunately, the road noise will remind you that you are not. Has good ups and downs and some river crossings which were quite fun (good balance and coordination will help or you might get wet). There are other trails and fire roads connected so you need to look up every now and then to make sure you are on the right trail. Trail is mostly well marked on the trees (some markings are a bit faded on the yellow trail) Overall fun little hike. I clocked in at 4.46 miles.

SKIP THE LOOP. The straight line into the resovior and back is great. The loop off the trail was completely gone, unmarked, and full of downed trees and burrs... ouch.

Nice easy to moderate trail... only moderate because of some water crossings and a few short steep ascents.

This is definitely a runnable trail for nearly the entire way—just a few places where you would need to walk.

Fun, easy trails with a few water crossings.

I love the blue trail. Its easy and super fun, with small rock scrambles and some little water falls. The only bummer is there is a TON of trash everywhere. Be careful of the broken glass all along the streams edge.

This trail name is wrong. The correct name is Dead Man's Cove trail. There is no cave, though there is a sinkhole as well as some long-buried kiln activity. Before the reservoir was created, the hill coming down what is now 146/Jarrettsville Pike was known as Dead Man's Hill. The cove that this hike goes along eventually took that hill's name after the current bridge was built and the road made more safe. This is one of my local hikes and I really enjoy both the trails and bushwhacking around the shore, where much beaver activity can sometimes be seen.

I loved this trail. The app estimated the total length at around 7 miles. I went on a Thursday around 5:30 pm in the spring. It wasn't very populated at that time. Very peaceful. it was a fairly easy hike. There were some steep hills but few. Very dog friendly. This is a great morning or afternoon hike to add to the list.

We took this trail today and it was ok. There are sections that have been clearly worn that go to the lake, the loop on the map goes into paths that are not there, overgrown so many briars. We should have just stayed on the well worn areas because trying to get a five year old and dog through the briars was awful. If we go back it's to the lake and out. We tried the recorder but had to turn it off as we started to run out of battery. There isn't a parking lot just a pull off of the road to park at a little ways down from where the map shows the trail head being.

Nice trail!

Very nice hike. If you go to the right and follow the Widland sign you have a couple steep hills right off the back but then the rest of the trail is pretty light. A couple of little streams to go over via rocks. Def need a backpack carrier for any little ones.

I have hiked this trail quite a few times. There are a few steep hills but overall it’s a great hike!

This place just holds a special place in my heart. It's not a difficult hike, although on certain loops it can be challenging (in the best way). Great hike for the pups because there's a lot of water for them to swim in! I miss the old lake area, but aside from that, it's still a great place for a short or long hike, depending on your mood.

My kids loved this trail. There are actually two trails a yellow which travels around the park and a blue trail that follows the stream. The dogs we ran into were leashed which was really nice since so many places we go they aren't. We did lose the blue trail and ended up on the yellow which was fine. There are tons of rocks for the kids to jump on and a couple of crossing on the stream which weren't hard to cross, so no one's feet got wet. Overall a nice place in the middle of town which you forget about when you get on the trail.

Fun trail with lots of smaller trails you can connect to. There's also a creepy underground room, an old family cemetery, and part of the foundation for the Merryman house if you want to explore at little. Only downside to this trail is people frequently let their dogs off leash despite the signs.

As compared to other trails on here, I think that this falls under 'moderate' based on creek crossings and elevation changes! That said.. wonderful hike and great place to bring your dog.

Wooded trails, kinda marked, with a stream running through the middle.

great trails. scenic. some tough hills, but good for training for longer ventures.

very poorly marked at one point. Found ourselves on a red trail that was not mapped

The BEST trail we’ve found nearby with plenty of rock scrambling for the kids, which is the only thing they really like about going on hikes with their parents. My 5 and 11 year old loved jumping from rock to rock. Be sure to wear water shoes. You can easily stay dry on the hike as well by sticking to the path along the stream. We found a box turtle on the path. And butterflies. Moderate traffic, people with dogs, folks hanging out at the waterfall and smoking weed. There’s a great kids playground at the start of the blue trail as well. Plenty of shade. Only complaint is the trail markers are terrible. We stuck to the path, but it was awful when there was more than one worn path, trying to figure out where to turn, particularly at the end of the loop when you need to turn around and the blue trail seems to intersect with another trail.

Great weather for hike.
