    Heather Hunger completed Binder Red Trail

    Heather Hunger reviewed Gans Creek Wild Area Trail

    over 1 year ago

    Really enjoyed this trail. On a warm day in February there were many people others enjoying it also. I took my little dog and we did a loop that was about 5.5 miles. I felt like I was the only one enjoying myself as most people just ran past us. I was glad to see so many people out though. There are a few fun little creek crossings, and many nice overlooks to enjoy. I imagine spring and fall with make this a beautiful trail to take. I will probably consider doing it again someday.

    I read the other reviews before heading out, I couldn't find a good map online (which I finally found today, after the hike) so I just went off of the tracks on here and it happened to be the Moon Loop. First I must say that when my non-hiking friends hear me say "I'm going hiking!" this trail must be what they imagine LOL. It's pretty, I can imagine it much more lush in the late spring or fall though. I have uploaded pictures and will probably post a few more. This trail was just a tiny bit longer than it stated... close to six miles is a good gauge. I found it marked fairly well, starting out from Ginn Ln. (park right before the creek crossing on the left-it's not marked from the road) and heading south (right to take the loop at the top of the hill). The first mile or so wasn't too terrible. I imagine the thorns would be overgrown in the summer months. I should start out by saying about 90% of this trail is well marked, only one part I got knocked off of the trail because a very large tree is down (go to the right lol I had to wander over to the right after I passed the tree to get back on track). Much of the trail is pretty rough due to equestrian use. I'd say probably 60% of the trail was muddy which made the horse tracks worse. I straddled or went next to much of the trail due to this. There are two actual creek crossings on this loop (a hand full of small stream crossings that weren't a big deal). There are rocks to cross but your feet may get a little wet in the process, no biggie to me. The last mile before you enter the field is somewhat mundane... lots and lots of pine trees surrounding the trail, and tall grass. Then came the mud! It wasn't a bad experience. It's not traveled very much but it was, overall, a fun experience. I could see myself coming back in the fall but with the fair amount of foliage that's there now late spring would probably be better.

    The link I supplied is for the map of the trails in the area.

    Heather Hunger reviewed Three Creeks Conservation Area Multi-use Trail

    Took my six year old on this trail today. They do need markers that show the beginning of the trails. We wandered through the woods for about half a mile before we found some mowed track and then found the trail. Knowing what I do now I'll totally do this again. We took a two mile loop and it crosses the creek a few times. He really loved it. We played around in the creek for a bit. It is clearly marked once you're on it but like I said, finding it was odd. Right off the access road. I'll be back!!

    We camp and hike the trails, as well as swim, at Truman Lake. The trails are nice for family trips. The 2 mile trail has a nice lookout point. The campsites are nice, bathrooms are generally clean, and the swimming is great. Nice water. We always enjoy our trips there.

    I live very very close to these trails. I go hop on them a few times a week for some hiking exercise. There are five to choose from, I take the kids on the 2 mile red trail and they really enjoy it. The Yellow is the longest and goes next to the lake for a lot of it, very pretty. My favorite is the Blue, it crosses a creek several times and has lots of flowers.
