Very well marked trails, easy to follow. A few ups and downs, but overall easy trail and can complete in less than 2 hours.

I love this trail, go all the time with the dogs.

BEWARE! My car was broken into as my son and I were hiking here. I had nothing in sight sitting my my car and they busted out my widow and went through everything. According the the police officer, it happens frequently here. I was also advised by a fellow hiker there was a child missing in the woods while we were there. Didn't give us good vibes.
The trail I will say wasn't bad. We did the Yellow loop but I wouldn't chance going here ever again!

Nice hike with access to water. Dog loved it. Met very few people (3) during the hike.

really pretty trail. lots of different terrain keeps it interesting

I really enjoy this lightly trafficked trail. Sometimes I cut the trail in half by starting at Dogfish pond and loop around either north or south. Some challenging hills with rewarding views of the ravines. Often muddy in spots so I usually wear rubber boots. Highly recommend.

I start at the southern end off Chamberlain Rd. and hike counterclockwise. This puts the river views first, lunch at the northern most end, and the old growth last.
It gets pretty tough the last 2 miles or so, enabling a really nice appreciation for the old growth woods.

I would love a companion hiker here...

Great trail. Mostly in shade, with some pretty meadows. Lots of mud today, after a week of storms. I enjoyed the ravines. Very nice.

I trail run so this review is from a runners point of view. I have run the orange trail 3 times and really enjoy the varying terrain. The yellow trail has just enough hills to make it a bit challenging. I would rate it as moderate for trail running. Can be quite muddy if you run within 24 hours of rain. Be sure to go left when you hit the pond on the way back. It's easy to miss.

Wife and I did the Orange Trail today. We were kind of expecting the bottoms to be a swamp from the recent rain but it was just moderately muddy in places. We started at the southern trailhead on Chamberlain Rd and hiked counter clockwise putting us alongside the river for the first half of the hike. The Earthworks were very interesting to see, as were the many deep revines. The river views were nice and I found a few places that I want to hike back to with a backpacking rod-n-reel to do a little fishing during the summer. We stopped at the north end of the trail at the High View Trailhead for a little break and a snack. Our snacks today were cheddar cheese block, canned herring in olive oil and a couple boiled eggs. Our little lunch break was a short 15 minutes and including the break, we finished the 6.2 miles in 3 hours and 14 minutes. We were not in a hurry but rather were taking our time and taking in the scenery and photo's. I would recommend this hike as it offered great scenery and was moderately challenging. I'd say the last 2 miles were the most challenging with the deep ravines.

I really like this trail. Most of the trail is easy to moderate, though there are a couple of rugged areas. There's different types of terrain that makes this trail interesting.

Trails were great! Little mud, most spots have walk around trails. Loved the remoteness feeling and elevation changes. A must do!

I switch between this trail and germantown on a regular basis. Every trail has an energy and twin creek trail feels ancient and desolate even though it's close to homes and farms. Lovely views overlooking Twin Creek and Sunfish Pond. Can be extremely muddy. If you start on the Eby Road main entrance you have an amazing view of the farmlands surrounding germantown/Carlisle/miamisburg.

A nice longer trail with a feeling of remoteness that quickly disconnects you from modern life. One of my favorites to just "get away."

we took the orange trail on a warm and sunny april day. it was nice long trail mostly wooded with frequent views of the river. it was a little slick and muddy with the heavy rains we has the previous week. it would be a nice local destination to hike but with the hour drive, this one would be a once a year visit, reserving more time to go places with a more rewarding view. it took us 4 hours to complete the loop.
