hiking, walking, trail running...backpacking trek training...best all round trail for those pursuits around. You can cut it in half if you don't have time for the full 3.2 by taking the shorter trail option, well marked, name evades me! New trails cut, and just lovely. good elevation gain, hike along the creek, and up along the ridge and plateau with meadows and grassland. nice!

Directions on the app take you to the Kendall Lake parking lot. It’s a 0.5 mile hike on the Kendall Lake loop to get to the Salt Run trail head. I showed us walking just shy of 5 miles total. You could park at the Pine Hollow lot and more easily access this trail.
Thankfully there were trail maps at the parking lot as the initial signs don’t tell you which way to go towards the Salt Run trail.
Overall, a nice hike through the woods. Nothing spectacular to see. Trail goes close to the road so there is traffic noise. Coolest thing we saw was a big beaver at Kendall Lake.

Fun hike close to home! Going on the *closed* trail off Mary's cave is our favorite that connects to the Highbridge trail. There are some amazing natural rock arches to be seen! The falls are the 'main' attraction but there is so much more to see and do here!

A very easy and nice trail to hike on. It was nice and flat with no major hills. Great for running on. It was also quiet and desolate. Did not see any people on the trail and had a lot of options to go onto other trails. Highly recommend for an easy 2 mile hike that is peaceful and isolated.

Great Lake loop, there are connected offshoot trails which allows you to cut and wind and loop back around to keep it interesting if you go often. I take the pooch and he loves it. The lake is very pretty and you can see ducks and geese and I even seen a huge beautiful fox on a connecting trail. Do be careful as there seem to be a lot more ticks at this park than others.

neat trail that winds around and through some neat rock formations, very pretty. dog / kid friendly

Lovely easy trail along the ledges of large rock formations. The stairway created by the civilian conservation corps is really cool and worth checking out. The signage can be confusing. We ended up doing a loop on the happy days trail and then back on track with the ledges.

Fantastic hike today. The trail was slippery in a few places and there were opportunities to hop across streams. Very well marked trail. Beautiful wildflower meadow area at the back of the loop, so glad I opted for the longer hike even though it was sprinkling a bit.

It was a perfect hike. I loved the ever-changing scenery. It was awesome for a weeknight hike!

Most enjoyable. The “Top of the world” is a wonderful spot for meditation or a little yoga. From there to the trail head can be a little noisy, being so close to Bath Rd.
Be careful in the rain.

Loved adding connecter trails which made it much more challenging. Very few other people which can be refreshing! Pretty dry but the pine trees still smelled amazing. Cannot wait to revisit and switch up adding other trails and seeing what changes of seasons will bring!

First time and loved it. Took a couple of hundred pictures and finished in 2-1/2 hours. Well maintained trail.

Great, well marked trail with lots of shade and moderate elevation changes. We parked at Kendall lake and took a connecting trail that parallels the main road to get to the trail head. There is a nice little loop around Kendall lake as well where a good amount of people were fishing and picnicking.

This is one of my favorites in the CVNP. It’s never busy, is fairly remote, and takes you through several different ecosystems. It’s great for dogs too.

Wonderful trail, a mix of forested and open high field grasses. Does include some significant ups and downs which is nice but to be aware of. Wonderful couple hour hike.

Nice hike. I met a group of volunteers who maintain and cleared the trail :) which was very nice. Signs are a bit confusing at times - no biggy. Love the trail and will come back.

I would say this trail is on the tougher end of moderate. It has very steep hills and many stairs, but it’s worth all of it. Very pretty area, takes you through wooded areas, past a beautiful barn and a nice creek. Honestly, it has everything I’m looking for in a hike.

Boooo! Mingo started out pretty cool with a nice incline with the stream on the left, but so is the road. After a couple miles, the trail crosses the road, which is where the trail used to loop around the other side of the stream. It doesn’t anymore. So I ended up looping back on the paved multipurpose trail...several feet away from the road. Not even a run-in with a big white tail buck saved this hike. But if you love being really close to roads and cars and stuff, you’ll love it.

This trail was super fun! It was very unique and easy. There’s a really pretty scenic overlook if you cross the field too.

This a great hike with some nice inclines to get your heart rate up. I had a little bit of trouble finding the trail head and ended up adding a mile to my hike by doing the lake trail.

The trail path and surroundings are nice. We went left at the big tree. If you have dogs be very careful taking them here. There was quite a bit of broken glass in the beginning and scattered throughout that could have easily cut their paws. It's a shame people felt the need to break glass on the trail.

The hilly part of the trail provides a good workout and beautiful scenery. I saw only four other people on this trail during the entire time I was hiking. There are places where one can easily extend the hike by going into the F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm or other extensions.

One of the neater trails I've found in the area in terms of terrain and scenery, and not much noise pollution from traffic until the last 1/4.

This trail is pretty easy 80% of the time, but the dip in the middle can sneak up on you. I’d like to stop by the lake in the middle next time, but other than that there isn’t much to this trail.
