I took my chocolate lab to the trail and we loved it so much, easy walk, decent distance. Even some parts of the trail close to the expressway, but I didn’t find it bothersome. I plan to take my lab back again everyday until it’s time to go home

The map is misleading. It takes you to the gate by the water treatment plant. You have to access this trail through Lone Star Park. Easy hike, even on a scorcher of a day. May want to go back to go fishing.

the trail is a bit hard to find. it is in lone star lake park. we didn't make it all the way to the trail. we will go back and know where to go next time. better signage is needed. I wasn't sure I could drive my car all the way back.

So not exactly what I was hoping for. The trails were nice, decent quality, but god was it confusing. after the fourth time of ending up back at the start after trying to take the longest "burgandy" trail, we decided to call it a day. Following the blue and yellow trails were just as confusing. They need to remark the trails and add some extra marks as well.

Nice walking/running path. The occasional unleashed privileged dogs.
Lots of shade.

My fav for running! Beautiful park!

Felt like a real forest experience. My dog loved it!! Only flaw is the lack of signs and we got lost several times. Need better signage/directions!

Out and back, mostly dirt and gravel road. This route only has 1 trail off shoot and it's short.

Skillet made it a fast trek.

Good cool down walk after Sleepy Hole run. Sunsets across the creek/marsh and the lightning bugs made it better.

Great sunset run, would have given it 5 stars but the bugs can be a bother. Awesome sunset pics.

We took our dogs walking on this trail to the lake and back. Saw a couple horseback riders.
Found lots of ticks on us afterwards in 2017.

a great jungle experience, except hard to follow the makers

Great for fishing

Short, easy, wide, packed trail. Rather busy for an early Sunday morning but everyone was very friendly!

Beautiful, short, wooded trail. We went late morning when it was to hot to normally walk with our dogs but nice and cool on the trail.

I live in the neighborhood by the park. this park is a great escape to enjoy some time in the woods and get a good workout.

Great walk but not quiet since it’s still near the interstate and very busy. Overall a very nice walk and scenic.

Im all for a Naturalistic walk but at a point it becomes a problem when the trails look like a hurricane came through 7 months past hurricane season. Everything is overgrown / derelict. The only other people there were 16 year old stoners on the bike jumps. Then again it fits the bill for southern VA, trashy and occupied by bums. Can't wait to get back to Colorado.

Trail was pretty cool.

As advertised . . . easy and short. It's worth walking if you're looking for a nice stroll and light exercise.

I'm assuming this one is the full/extension of the other park trail. I was confused why the other was described as so short. This one, though, makes for a nice stroll outside. There's nothing complicated to it, making it decent for most any age. It does offer a constant view of the creek mostly the entire walk. Otherwise, it's basically just a flat trail with a lot of shade covering. Bugs are a slight issue depending on the humidity or rainfall.

More of a shortcut through a flying disc course that has a few views of the water. I like being outside though, so it's not as disappointing as some reviews. But there really isn't much to it. if you're looking for exercise, you're better off just walking up and down the road leading into the park and boating lot.

This is a easy great trail. I have no clue why it's listed as a moderate trail. You will have to cross a ditch or two at a slight incline, but that is the biggest challenge. Bring bug spray of some sort during the summer. I have walked this trail in almost every season and they all have their rewards. You can check out my short review and pics on the Google listing or on Instagram @archangel.photography.

Scenic path around the lake. Heavily used, and you won’t get away from the road noise. However, if you’re looking for something quick, accessible and local to get outdoors for a bit, it’s a good walk.

great trail!

had a great time!

not a bad little walk to just get out of the house for a bit.

Instant favorite!

Love this trail. Only problem is large groups of student athletes run at fast pace, which can be a bit dangerous. Otherwise awesome.

Well kept, short trail. Not much elevation change, probably would be very boring for experienced mountain bikers. Nice views of the lake. Two offshoot trails that were less well kept, but offered slightly more in the way of trail biking than the main trail. Overall, probably more of a walking trail but a nice experience.
