No Dogs... The starting doesn’t say that nor does the listing... but the trail goes into Anadale which does not allow dogs.

The real issue is the people on the trail, usually the older retired type with nothing better to do then stop and harass you even when you’re trying to leave.

A very nice walk in the park. elevation gain is minimal.

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!

good first 3.5 miles with a walk on asphalt for the last mile.

Beautiful first 2 or 3 miles with nice views. Ended up walking the last mile or so on the road in the sun though.

pretty fun and easy hike.

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

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!

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.

Don't go if it's toasty out. There's very limited shade spots so it's direct sun. Make sure to wear sun screen!! Otherwise gorgeous trail absolutely loved it

Only strenuous for about 10-15 minutes then the trail flattens out for the rest of the hike. There's a beautiful view but it was ultimately a little underwhelming.

Trails weren't marked very clearly so we veered off course a bit.

Needs better signage but beautiful trail, moderate grade up and easy down.

Great views coming back down the canyon trail!

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

great trail for hiking

Trails are not clearly demarcated. At the Cobblestone and Orchard trail junction, it would help to have a trail sign indicating where Cobblestone trail continues. Otherwise a great activity.

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.
