great loop trail, two decent size hills, love walking it with my dog. Keep your eyes open for trail markers and its great seeing the valley floor.

Was a beautiful spot to take the dogs. We all had a great time. We ended up doing about 12 miles because a few of the turns were not clearly marked. Had to keep bringing app up to make sure we were on the right path. Overall it was great and with all the hills, we all are going to be sleeping well tonight!

Really enjoyed this trail. Nice views. Well kept. Clean and very quiet.

Great flat trail that you can continously run on. I was over there last week and someone pulled all the location markers. I emailed the city of Louisville and they reassured me the markers would be replaced so hopefully they have been.

Great trail,only a couple areas in turns weren’t marked and had to check the gps, otherwise excellent, I’ll definitely be coming back in the summertime to see how different it looks.

Relatively flat except for the two huge climbs. They’ll let you know how out of shape you are. Beautiful views though.

Great workout with several incline/declines. We hiked in the snow...glad we brought our poles!

Kinda of tough but doable

Beautiful winter hike close to Louisville.

Excellent trail! Well-maintained with lots of opportunity to challenge yourself physically (...were a few moderately steep hills!). My girlfriend and I were to do the Guided Winter Hike scheduled for today...missed the “meet-up” spot....Red Trail is what we did by ourselves. Admittedly there were a couple of spots where it would’ve been nice to have markers indicating that it’s the Red Trail, but there were dots spray-painted on trees! All-in-all, a FANTASTIC trail!!! What a lovely treasure right in the heart of South Louisville!!! ❤️

I’d say this trail is good for beginners. Me and a few buddies recently got into hiking and this is the first one we did. The two hills will test you a bit but otherwise it’s pretty easy going and great for someone who is just getting started!

Good trail, we did get a little confused in 2 spots on what way they sign was pointing 2. But other than that it was a good hike.

Great workout, ups and downs.

Well-marked wooded trail through gentle hills with a creek crossing. We took the shortcut due to time constraints. A very worthwhile and enjoyable couple-hour hike.

This trail (red trail) was my first experience hiking a few years ago. A friend and I had the idea of a short after dinner hike. We started out completely unprepared to walk anywhere. 6 pm start with no flashlights, water, food, cell phone, nothing. That 4 hour hike to finally find our car in the dark was a very unpleasant experience. That sparked my interest in being properly prepared for my next trip. I have now learned that lesson and now only hike when within my abilities and preparedness. Since then I have hiked this trail twice with great times to report.

Few accents that will kick some tail. Elevation changes were just what I needed to get the heart pumping. Trail mileage felt much longer than listed.

Nice trail. Well marked.

The trail is off to the right of the parking lot towards the wooden board with trail info, markers start after a brief wooded section. This is a pretty tough trail to run, especially with a leashed dog due to the elevation changes and narrowness. I wish the trail had been marked better, I had the feeling it didn’t get much use. The ridge sections were nice, I just found the trail hard to follow under the fallen leaves. I prefer Siltstone or Coral Ridge.

This is a great trail for a short but interesting trail run, I only wish it were longer. There are some nice elevation changes and the trail is free of roots and rocks. My gps showed 2.7 miles from the parking lot and back. There are some options for adding distance by picking up other loops or the Yost Ridge.

Beautiful trail. A little more strenuous than it's moderate rating but definitely enjoyable. Will certainly be back.

Anyone know the story behind the old car in the back section of the loop?
