I ended up taking a wrong turn early on and doing ridge trail to creek side trail, but it was a great run. I'm very new to trail running so the first half was tough for me but probably not that hard for a more experienced trail runner. Imagine it would be a moderate hike. New tree coverage, great views. Parking free along the road outside the parking lot ($7 to park in the lot).

I've been going to Shiloh Ranch a few times a week after work, on the way home. I love all of the variations on loops there, along with the challenging uphills. It's perfect for an after-work hike. There are lots of deer out in the evenings.

Lovely gentle hike. Nice variety of terrain. Sometimes amongst the trees, sometimes in open meadows. The pond is a peaceful place to sit and relax for a bit. The geese and a bunch of dragon flies kept us entertained.

As described- moderate hike with a few nice views. Great mossy trees and clearly marked trails. Very muddy post rainfall. A few options to make the loop shorter or longer.
