Very nice trail. Well shaded and well maintained. Especially good for summer.

Beautiful trail with very old trees. My mother father and I loved it!

A nice walk through Clayton park!

First time ever at this park for my wife and me. A wonderful shaded walk in the woods! Worth the 55 minute drive. A few spots were muddy, but that was expected based on all the rain over the past 2 weeks. Will return with my mountain bike!

Very nice

Good condition. A few challenging hills for running. Private and quiet. Not challenging for hikes.

Nice. More later

Very good trail that is very well marked. According to my Apple Watch workout it was just under 4 miles and the equivalent of 32 flights of stairs for the complete trail. Definitely some good elevation to get your heart rate up. There were about a dozen cars in the parking lot at 8:30 am on a Sunday but we only ran into a few hikers and 2 mountain bikers through the course. Will come back here for sure when it starts to green up as there are lots of trees and the lakeside view is wonderful.

Beautiful trail with unique trees. great for mountain biking.

Clayton park

pulled 19 miles out of there great workout on the mt.bike. u get out of it what u put into it .I like to push myself there.

Beautiful place, natural views, is well cared for, enjoy it.

Nice trail to hike. Eerily beautiful in the winter. I made a walking stick and left it at the entrance. enjoy.

Moderately long trail. Many ups and downs amidst the ravines. Normal wooded trail. Skirts portions of the creek. Bring a map as only the intersections of trails are marked.

Splendid little hike through forest and farmers field. One initial decline with switchback. There is a small pond the trail circles.

very easy and short loop but leads to the bigger loops.

This trail is pretty easy. I would definitely do it again. There's few trails you can choose from. I did most of them within 3 hours, looped around twice. Good day hike with your dog. I noticed some small log jumps around the paths for mountain biking. There's a small pond where few people were fishing.

Awesome loop with a few different options. I loved the massive trees. We went in late October and there wasn't much traffic, just a hand full of cyclists. Plenty of deer, turtles, and a few snakes. The elevation gains are easy and flatten out quickly.

Great loop. Climbs will give you a workout but the downhills are a nice reward. Trails are shared with runners, hikers, and dogs but are plenty wide to allow passing.

Everything I expected it to be. An average hike at an average place. Nothing more and nothing less. Though, there was a nice little (10 yard) solid elevation on the back 9 of the trail which was pretty sweet. Keep your eyes peeled for it..., that felt good. Not sure about the whole run off p (pollution) in the water spring which reflected as a rainbow and gave off the illusion you could make money, here. Nevertheless, a lot of cool table top fungi, etc. and at least 1-2 very kind frogs. Definitely nothing greater than a 3 star hike, but definitely nothing less either.

Great fun. Some fast down hills and you can ride all the trails in about an hour. Some erosion has taken place either the 2018 rain. The blue trail has some bad erosion on the downhill near the big bridge. The hills can get your heart pumping! I’d compare it to a roller coaster on the boardwalk. Challenging and fun, not to wild.

I did this with a heavy pack on a 90 degree day this week and found it to be super challenging. A lot of elevation changes was the workout I needed.
