My first trail! I enjoyed it, my husband and I turned it into a Day Date! it was very rocky and the trails were narrow. we also got confused at the beginning of the trail. but thanks to this app, we figured it out! can't wait to look into other trails

So beautiful wow . Literally ethereal just go

Hiked this 11am-1pm on Saturday 9/28/19. I hiked it as an out and back from to/from where the peninsula loop starts, so it was an hour each way. I love the peninsula trail but prefer the scenery of it from that trailhead instead. Only passed 2 couples on the trail that entire time, though there were several cars at the trailhead. Only an occasional bug buzzing in my ear, so I imagine it might get buggy in summer. Pros: shaded, generally wide trail (since most if not all of it is a fire road), good mix of elevation, not very muddy (though it’s been really dry lately so I imagine can get muddy since there were a few spots of it) Cons: traffic sounds for the first/last 15 minutes, not many views of the reservoir, some horse poop (though not as bad as some other trails at Liberty)

Enjoyable hike with views of the reservoir. There was a port-o-potty at the parking area but it was locked so don’t count on having that available. Very light traffic on the September Saturday morning we were there. Definitely on the easy side of the moderate scale.

as a runner, there are plenty of roots and rocks to trip on... tape your ankles up..if you are walking or hiking its perfect

Nice hike. Not marked on the trees but is well traveled. We didn’t see a lot of people on our venture which meant a lot of spice webs! Easy trek. Nice hills, still wouldn’t rate this as “moderate” though.

Spectacular area of oak Savannah best on overcast days or bring sunscreen/hat! Spray legs for chiggers in late summer.

We didn't go too far into the trail, it was okay. the high voltage powerlines really detracted from it for me, unfortunately.

If you are someone who enjoys adventure, exploration and an insanely difficult trail to follow than this trail is for you. This is primarily an unmarked trail that is not maintained and requires trudging through knee high brush and woods and climbing over, under and around multiple downed trees. Needless to say this was quite the adventure. So, my hiking partner and I are hiking adventures so overall the trail wasn’t bad. There are water crossings which are not clearly defined and in most places there was not real good place to cross and we ended up with wet feet. There was a section that ass very muddy, like up past your ankles. You will NEED to wear log pants and high socks for this hike. You will walk through an open field for about 15 where the brush is out of control so wear sunscreen

Parts of this trail were great. The longest part was overgrown and not well maintained however, a walk through the tall trees was pretty nice with a rewarding view of the reservoir at the end!

The trail is well shaded, pleasant on a hot day. Nice views of the lake at the end. My dog and I enjoyed it very much.

Was a very enjoyable walk on a gorgeous day. I loved knowing that I burned 1400 calories walking 8 miles. I started at 8:30 am and finished at Noon and that included a 15 min break. There were a few muddy spots in the shady areas, but not impassable nor got my shoes all mucky. The trail was wide but wish there were signs at the forks in the trail. If I didn’t have this app, I could have been going in circles and not know it.

Trail as shown does not exist. After about 3 miles it ends at a river. Also several trees down before that point making it almost impossible to pass.

A nice, quick walk to the waters edge.

I reviewed this trail when I first hiked it last November but figured I’d give an updated review. I still loved it and stand by it being one of my favorite local hikes! This time I hiked it on a Saturday afternoon in June. This time I hiked the loop instead of doing it as an out and back. The section of the loop to the west, which I hadn’t done prior, was only okay. There are some steep sections, and it seemed less breezy and more buggy. It was not as pretty, in my opinion, though there are some areas you can see the reservoir. Pros: pretty, not many people (though the trailhead was pretty full, I only passed a few people), mostly shaded, lovely reservoir views for much of it Cons: mud in the same section towards the beginning (and you can’t get around it easily), a lot of horse poop
