Solid loop, but there are some streams to cross right at the start and some abandoned trails. We walked, but this is a fairly rocky trail that is probably not great for runners. Parking on that dirt road isn’t bad for a few cars. There’s a pond north of the loop that is perfectly circular on the map, but it’s surrounded by marshlands. Really wanted to see it in person, but it appears to be completely inaccessible. The western trail we had to double-back on has lots of fallen trees obstructing it and near the end of the extended loop we attempted, to our dismay, it is completely flooded by two marshes that are now connected. Overall, it was an challenging hike for us with a small dog and two kids under 7, but it was an adventure!

Nice trail but because it's not heavily trafficked it's easy to lose your way as the trails are not very well defined in some areas. And I'm pretty sure there are some missing markets.

A really neat place to explore. Lots of hills, rocks, roots, a good mix of terrain. Awesome for trail running. The pups loved it.

I liked this trail! It had a lot of walking/hiking options and a lot of pretty scenery. It wasn't crowded at all, which I really liked. Besides the trail being a bit bumpy in some areas I loved this trail!

This is a real nice trail - relatively easy but cool landscapes and changing vegetation.

Really like the drumlins in the park. Reached Bald Hill but some stretches of bushwacking through junk in less travelled trails. Lots of horseflies.

Most trails were well marked and overall the hike was good. Very rocky at points and beware: there were many many snakes.

It was a lot of fun. So much more to hike, the only thing a lot of the trails was washed out. But also that made it fun too

Nice loop with a mix of steeps and single-track. Nothing spectacular, but a great workout/training path
