Made for a nice run; my only criticism is that it isn't longer.

Pretty decent trail. Saw lots of wildlife (tortoise, deer, woodpecker). my only encounter with others was watching someone head to the trail before me or coming back to the parking area. It was raining and we were lucky enough to find a seated shelter on the Pine Island Trail, along the board walk.

Nice trail. I did it with all the others to make a full trail out of it. Did a little backtracking on some to make sure I covered it all the way! Enjoyed the day of hiking here.

I did these trails with all the others. Was very nice trails. No one on the trails today which was kind of nice! No bugs either!

I did these trails with all the others. I enjoyed the Moccasin area as something a little more interesting on the trail. Was very well maintained and easy hiking.

Was chilly today and I had the trail mostly to myself. Saw one couple and a lady coming in as I was leaving. Nice maintained trails and lucky for me because I forgot to put on my hiking shoes today to go hiking! Didn't notice till I got there and it's an hour's drive. I hiked all the trails in the park that I had not been on in the past. Saw some control burn places, swamp places, and mostly pines. Easy hike for just about anyone. Not muddy today and still NO BUGS! yea! Happy 1st day of Spring. Forgot to mention that my alltrail app crapped out on me at a 3-way 'fork' on the trail, so left me LOST! (thankfully I don't trust it after doing this so many times, I had the paper map).

I did this trail one evening when the sun was just about to go down. I didn't have a lot of time, so I chose this one. It was a nice quick hike to get a feel of the park. I came back and completed all the other trails on another day.

great trail, will visit this one again and again as it's close by. There are a lot of exposed roots that can twist your ankle especially while trail running.

Lots of pines!! Beautiful fall colors!! Very peaceful.

Well marked, very sandy trail with lots of roots. But decent. The whole trail is runnable.

Well marked and relatively well groomed trails that had a good mix of small elevation changes that kept them interesting.

Trail is pretty hot and the air is stagnant at many points. I would not recommend in the dead of summer unless it’s a breezy day. Did a few of the trails twice to increase the distance. Well kept trail with lovely pines and small reflective bogs.

Walked/Hiked three loops. Great trail systems. Nice benches all along to rest. Great bridges to get over the water. This trail offers low swampy areas as well as hill tops. We had a great time. Maps available at the desk. My Fitbit said we went 3.7 miles and the AllTrails app said 4.2. I’m inclined to believe the app over the GPS Fitbit since cellular refreshes more often. Highly recommend this trail for all levels of hiker and walkers.

Well mapped and blazed. Can mix and match smaller loops or stay to the outside and do the whole loop. These would be good for trail running, with or without dog.

Paced a friend for the Weymouth Woods 100k. Trail was very technical and a great challenge. A few places were pretty treacherous especially in the dark. Definitely worth the trip.

Solid trail. Enjoyed it start to finish.

Great trails, first time in the park will not be my last!!!

Great park with a very helpful staff! We thoroughly enjoyed this park and the trails. There are enough trails to customize the trip and make it as long or as short as you would like. We hiked 4 miles and thoroughly enjoyed the park. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to check out the Sandhills region.

Nice hike with my wife this afternoon. We did enough of the loops to get in 4 miles and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Sandhills are home for me and I always enjoy hiking in the long leaf and loblolly pine groves. We did not see any wildlife. The hardwoods were beginning to change color and were very pretty as were many of the small under-growth plants. As we are now "senior citizens" we found the walk to be more "moderate" than "easy" but certainly easy enough for us. Because of the recent rains from hurricane Matthew, some of the trails had a few ruts created by the runoff but all were passable and well maintained. The young lady at the welcome center was very helpful and provided us plenty of good information about the park.

It was a fun easy to moderate hike. The trail has some hills and is super sandy, of course. It was really pretty though even though the recent rains had turned some of the smooth path into ruts which increased the difficulty. It was great for a nice short hike with my dog though. I did the 1.5 or so mile loop twice. There are pretty gardens in the property too and a nice gallery.

Nice walk. Not challenging, but great NC scenery. I managed around 4 miles or so and got a nice workout. A few runners on the trail; all ages - seniors to infants carried by parents.

Great family walking area. You can choose an easy 30 minute loop or go in the back horse trail for a real 4 miler. Lots to see and the parker rangers are very friendly.

Love this trail to run on. Varying elevations, nice soft trails, and bridges over water. Very nicely kept up local park with good parking and nice visitors center. If you want to extend distance, easy access to the All American Trail that goes around Fort Bragg.
