Nice hike with lots of beautiful scenery and a good amount of wild life  its a good hike if you want to get a good hike in for the whole day and feel it the next day. I enjoy going once a week!

Beautiful. Moderate climb, the marsh at the end is gorgeous. Combination of burnt, new, and existing plant life. Rocky paths, not many people out there, occasional mountain bikers.

Beautiful hike with lots of variety. About half was shaded, the other half exposed. Lots of wildlife including flogs and deer.

This trail is just down the street from my house. At this writing the trail is open an cleared but there is a great deal of evidence of the October wildfires. The park suffered a great deal of burn but is open and clear.
The level is probably difficult with large rocks and roots in some places. Lots of hikers, mountain bikes and runners but it’s never too crowded.

Beautiful trail, especially a few days after the rain with a strong stream in the creek. Other than a short stretch that was too steep for me to run up or down, moderate trail. Free parking on the street near trail head.

I noticed lots of 4+ star ratings on this trail but 3 stars on sugarloaf vista, just a few miles away. They aren’t really even comparable from a views and terrain diversity perspective. maybe it’s the mountain biker preference for this trail.

It is a beautiful hike, but many bikes on the main trail. we got lost for a little bit because the rain has washed away some mud, and plants are thick. overall, it is a fun hike

Very easy trail with some great views along the way.

My go to route for an efficient, fun 5 miler. Always fun bombing down rough-go and getting in some good flat around the lake. Add 2 extra miles by taking a right at Orchard and coming back on Cobblestone to meet up with Rough-Go.

Wonderful easy trail!

Went to trailhead but it’s all private property, no trespassing

Nice variety of not too steep and level. During winter small brook to cross.

Very nice lightly moderate trail. Not many birds, but lots of bikes on this Saturday, but all well trained in trail etiquette. Very relaxing.

Always a good time coming down Spring Creek - look out for turkeys! Access the trail from Stonehedge Dr. as well, instead of Spring Lake.

Really gorgeous trail. Pretty secluded from other people.

I have a lot left to explore in Anadel, but this was my favorite trail so far. We went on a Sunday in the summer but only encountered two people on the trail. There's a nice moderate climb at the beginning of the hike but not too taxing. Lovely views and lots of shade through the woods. At the end of the loop is a beautiful meadow with a picnic bench great for a lunch stop. Would definitely do it again for a relaxing evening hike.

2.5 hour loop at a leisurely pace. Path was easy to navigate and beautiful thick foresty trail. The last 1 mile of the hike was on a paved road back to the parking lot.

The various forests are just beautiful. You get a little bit of everything. A little climb at the beginning but pretty even throughout. Lots of flowers and herbs and things to see. Love it!! If you continue on Pig Flat to Schultz which leads to the road, then you can do a loop which is just under 7 miles. 1 mile of road....

Great hike. Lots of varied landscapes to enjoy. Mind the bikers if using Canyon. Not as many on Spring Creek.

great trail for hiking

Fun and beautiful trail with a lake at the end. Stunning views some uneven ground but overall a great trail. A bit muddy after lots of rain.

Amazing park with long gradual rolling hills. Very impressed to feel deep within the forrest while being so close to town.

Beautiful trail. The end of it was on a fire road where I usually prefer dirt trails but a wonderful mild hike regardless.
