Lots of fun trails, all on hills, and lots of trees

Nice nature walk, with enough small inclines here and there to make you feel like you got some exercise. There is no scenic viewpoint, but if you enjoy walking through the forest you’ll enjoy this.

This is a nice forest walk, with a few steep inclines that make you think you’re going to reach the top and have a view, but you never get one. I don’t mind walking through the forest, but my husband likes to be rewarded and have a goal in mind, so to him it is a rather aimless hike. We did not see the waterfall.

People, effective May 12, 2019, Magness Tree Farms is closed to the public except for Sundays, 9-5. They will have a chain across the entrance to the parking lot. Magness is part of the World Forestry Center and the web site states that the park is closed to the public due to high costs and vandalism.

Great trail to do with kids or if you are a beginner! Pet friendly too! Is only open on Sundays now which is a bummer. There is a short two mile loop and a larger five mile loop. There are bridges and a canal that make for cool photo opportunities!

Beautiful, secluded trail with a small creek and lots of greenery. We didn't see any wildlife other than birds. It was quiet and relaxing - though a bit steep at a few points.

Used to be cool, but not anymore. They blocked off the access to the waterfall and put up some super steep switchbacks that I honestly didn’t even bother going all the way up on because I had spent a lot of time trying to find a path that worked that I was over it. One of the paths leads to the road and ends and the other is closed off like I mentioned. So basically it’s not worth the drive. It’s a bummer.

This was a nice easy trail. Many people were coming and going today. There’s plenty of parking and covered tables for picnics and whatever else. For dogs they do ask for dog’s leash to be 6ft long and under.

I enjoyed this one and can't wait to go back to check out a different path

Fun hike with the dog. The waterfall area has been fenced off and blocked by the persons who own the land above the trail. Marked private property.

Love this hike.

I walked both trails and they were easy with a few inclines. I didn’t see the waterfall either. I wish someone would mark it on the map, if possible.

The waterfall can be found by heading north and west, up the Middle fork of Corral Creek. The trail is less maintained than the others and very muddy in the wet months, but very beautiful once you get into the cedar grove.

As others have said there isn't a waterfall along the trail. Otherwise it's a pretty standard walk especially with a toddler in tow

We had a great time hiking this trail. We did the short loop since we were pushing a double stroller. Dog and kid friendly, but lots of bugs.

Nice hike but there is no waterfall!

Took the dog for a morning hike. He loved it. Quiet first thing in the morning. People were just starting to head up as we were leaving.

great for all levels

Love this place. Great place to take kids and pets. A bit buggy, but otherwise this is a treasure!

Nice and easy hike, would be great for some trail running. There was very few people around but it is extremely well maintained.

Easy hike, nice smooth trails. Well taken care of, I would rate this as an easy trail not moderate.

I loved this hike but it was a little hard to follow the trail map and go on the Woods Trail so we got a little lost. I would still highly recommend this hike.

My husband and I needed to find a hike that our lab August could do 5 weeks post op a rear leg amputation. This hike was just what he needed! Wooded, pretty flat (if we avoided what probably was the prettiest part) and plenty of stream access! The rushing stream and forested trail was beautiful! The trillium was in its last glory as well! We will definitely come back and go further as August gets stronger!

I liked this trail. It was easy and I had fun. Also got approached by a rooster at then end, just wishing us a good day!

Good for the kids. The right mix of uphill and flat. Really enjoyed it.
