Nice quick hike. Good line of site down into the ravine as the trail is mostly on crest between two ravines.

HikingGreat!

In order to get the amount of miles as listed, you are combining deer run, hoot owl, red oak, and old village trails in that order. We took a picture of the trail map at the trail head to reference. The map on AllTrails loosely follows it, and I mean LOOSELY! Going in fall we didn’t have problems with ticks and the trails were quite clear and firm. Saw lots of deer (and hunters). You can really make any combination of these trails in order to get more/less miles. (I ended up with 7.5 miles by my watch combining the trails as I listed)

This trail is not close to the map. About a mile in it abruptly ends at a roadside creek. Hiked hoot owl and old village to get it up to 4 miles. Area was recently mowed so the hike was pleasant.

Very overgrown, confusing, and found ticks on everyone when we finished. There were some really cool sections but overall these trails are not marked or maintained well at all. Be sure to wear pants and/or tall socks because all ticks were found in between knees and ankles. This area would get 3-4 stars from me if it were at least marked well.

Trail starts out really nice but the further you get it gets more narrow the trail is. Was not muddy. Legs will itch if you hike in shorts. Had some neat views.

Looks like the park is doing some work on the trail and weather looks to have shut it down. Pretty muddy in the areas under repair. Not the park’s fault obviously but just an fyi for anyone hitting the trail this spring after rain. Trail does not follow the alltrails app exactly but is well defined and easy to follow. Signage is needing work to once work continues. Nice trail respective to the area.

Fun trail. Easy in parts, but definitely a couple areas which would have challenged someone with physical limitations.

RunningOver grown

Not well maintained at this point in time. I had to retrace my path several times because of overgrowth. It was pretty but more difficult to enjoy due to poor maintenance. I also agree with Doug down below that AllTrails is not accurate with this particular trail.

This was a great trail! Not completely clear so if you have small kids and things I would not go. But for the avid hiker, it was great! Very scenic and one of the best I’ve hiked in this area!

Hiking

Nice trail along a ridge, short climb at the end and beginning, otherwise flat.

Nice trail, crosses a couple small creeks, open timber. best hiked clockwise. The track on alltrails is not accurate. To stay on track start at the trailhead at the ranger station and hike clockwise. It is a great loop. Red Oak trail is a nice shorter alternate if short on time.

First to Review

Simple out and back trail partially along an old old double track. Follows a small creek and leads to a small river before climbing the bluff. Not real showy.

It was a nice short trail, followed a small creek, had minor rock formations a long a bluff, and a small area of prairie. NIce for the area.

I enjoyed this hike. It follows an old road, but has a couple of nice elevation changes and the sounds of the trees and birds are wonderful...

Best hike in the area. Starts off with a good incline for the first ten to fifteen minutes. There are are a few places that could be better marked. I do this hike a few times a year. I usually see a deer or something. nice views of oak (mostly) and pine forests. There are a few creek crossings (shallow).

Pleasant fall hike. Surface is a bit uneven and requires care when ascending and descending hill.

Beautiful trail in the fall. There are several trails that cross so you have the option of adjusting the distance by mixing and matching. Talks are broad with little undergrowth. I traveled about 45 minutes to get to this park and will definitely return to do different sections of the trails.

Hiking

Initially, great views as the trail winds near the creek. A dilapidated staircase takes you to the top of the ridge. We made it 1.7 miles from the trailhead, and the weeds became waist high so we decided to loop back. Overall, decent moderate hike.

It has some tough inclines, but was a joy to home through!

I go on this trail often. My only complaint is in some spots it's really overgrown and almost hard to tell what is the trail and what is just the forest. it's not marked out very well but no matter what way you go it's simply to find your way back to the beginning. it's definitely beautiful and great exercise

November, got to the trail head only did a over a 1/2 mile and lost the trail and ran into some hunters. So turned around and went back. Going to try this trail in April. Look fun though.
