Well kept trail. Easy to follow the red markers. Sign clearly states it is over 4 miles at the trailhead. Has a great scenic overlook in the first mile going clockwise. My toddler loved getting to run along the path. Great and easy trail.

The signage is poor and the distance of the trail is confusing. All trails says 1.9 miles bit the actual trail says it is 4+ miles.

Great trail enjoyed doing it twice

The fall colors were stunning here yesterday!

Beautiful trail, although perhaps better for a bike or horse ride. Probably won’t hike it again just due to the sheer amount of times I had to step off the trail to make way for riders.

We got misled by some of the signage. Still, it’s a nice walk through the forest.

Left from the trailhead at the Visitors Center and went clockwiser. Had a heck of a time picking up the trail when we hit the Equestrian Center. Wandered around the parking lot a few times, then finally located it. Very nice hike. Was surprised that we had a nice breeze even at the lower parts of the trail. Would like to see it when it is wet.

The distance was a little off I showed 3.1 miles. It was a good hike i would definitely mark it as moderate. Unfortunately all the creek beds were dry.

Enjoyed a gorgeous day on this trail. The trailhead is just behind the equestrian center and has two parking places adjacently located. The trail is pretty narrow - tough to walk and talk. There are a few confusing areas to locate where the trail picks back up around camping and other equestrian areas. No issues with insects today. Near the end, there were some areas that were pretty overgrown. Enjoyed the moderate elevation climbs but mostly an easy going trail.

The official Dogwood trail is actually 2.6 miles and is the northern section on the map. It's a decent challenge with a good amount of elevation change, but not too much. Just watch out for the horses***, which I mean literally.

moderate challenge with some nice technical areas. not for beginners. hope you like to uphill. there are plenty of ascents. great strength training.

I love Greensfelder. My great-great grandfather Charles Evans once owned several hundred acres that is now part of Greensfelder. It's an excellent place to camp and to hunt for rocks in the creek.

Nice Park. Trails are generally well maintained. No blazes, but markers located at intersecting trails. Quite a few nice trails in the park to choose from.

Not really well marked but a good trail with some cool sites.

Eagle Valley Trail, approx 3.5mi. Delightful changes in terrain, elevation, & plants.

Trailhead: When driving from i44, do NOT turn right onto a one-way road as soon as you see a "Welcome to Greensfelder" sign. Just stay on the two-lane & you'll get to the visitor's center & trailhead much faster!

Trail Traffic: Unlike the app's description ("heavily trafficked"), we only saw a handful of other people on a Saturday in July :)

Caution: Look carefully when the Eagle Valley (blue) & Deer Run (yellow) trails unite. We followed a dry downhill tributary and had to double back.

Special treat: wild raspberries! Yum!

This trail is now 4.1 miles long - (see picture I posted) - it starts at the shelter and ends on the road that you can take to the overlook - I enjoyed the trail and found it to be well marked and moderate in difficulty

Did the Joseph Declue Trail today - nice fairly easy hike - had some hilly areas but not a lot - watch for horses on the trail and what they leave behind. Also had lots of bike riders on this trail. Signage could be improved especially where trails overlap. I would do this trail again

Nice quiet trail even though there were several cars parked at the trailhead. If you're walking beware of horse manure. Watch your step. Otherwise very scenic and shady. You will need the bug spray if hiking in spring/summer. In some spots the trail is not very wide so be careful when bikers are passing. Wear good shoes as some parts are very rocky and can turn muddy.

My family enjoyed this trail. It was primitive yet well marked. We only met one other person while on the trail so we enjoyed the quiet hike in the woods. The final climb in elevation at the end of the trail was a nice challenge to end on.

It was hilly in some parts. Muddy because of rain and difficult to tell mud from horse poop. But overall a very beautiful and area and nice hike.

70+ degree February day. We were surprised by the amount of leaves on the trail and how faded most of the blazes were..... until we popped back out on to the proper trail. At some point, maybe a mike in, we lost the trail but ended up on the old trail. :)
The trail is actually in great shape but the old trail was more of an adventure. Very nice area. We lived the hike!

This is a great park. Lots of different trails to go out on and plenty of things to do/see. I spent 2 days in the park and found multiple caves and various kinds of wildlife. There are also a few buckeye trees in the park so make sure to pick up a lucky buckeye for future trips (I was told they're lucky)

I would rate this trail as a 4 but there were multiple trees down on the trail and it was poorly marked.

We did the Eagle Valley Trail, park map said 3.6 miles but the parks description said 4.5 miles which I think is more accurate. Great trail though!

very fun hike. saw 3 doe on the way. nice little view of the hills before you make your way down towards a nice little stream. We also saw a 5 foot blackrat snake and a few box turtles which helped the experience

Great trails to ride in spring and fall. Very easy to ride. Wide open trails. Can't get lost. Trail head not very large. Get site early to be able to park with ease.
