Great trail in an incredible area to hike in. Hiked too much today and my phone died. Hate it when that happens. Was able to charge it before I did the next trail in Grants Pass. Hats off to the Jacksonville Woodlands Assoc!!! A truly great place to hike.

Great trail that I and my dog, Brook were alone on. Met a nice gal walking a friend's lab that looked a lot like mine where we parked. This one runs on the edges of the neighborhood. It was enjoyable hearing the hammers go on 3 different construction projects. This would be a great place to live, especially if you liked to get out on some trails.

The 1st of 2 times today me. my phone or the app acted goofy. I wasn't able to lay down a complete track and didn't catch it on time. It took about a mile to catch it... Probably me. Great trail I enjoyed and met a nice couple who were fellow Lab owners. In all the trails I did in the area today I went through parts of this 3 times. Awesome area to hike in.

Great trail with a lot of gold mining history. A lot of blood, sweat and tears from the past. Met a nice lady with a Doodle to play with my Lab for a bit. Great place to hike with some very nice people. I really enjoy the mix of Madrone, Manzanita and Oak trees in the area. Thoroughly enjoyed the 7 trails I did in the area today

Very nice trail. I enjoyed everything I've done in this trail system including all the people I've met and talked to on the trail. Bravo to Jacksonville.

Great trail!! My GSD and I went hiking on the Petard trail and had loads of fun!

I hike this trail several times a year it is easy, but there are a few steep sections. There isn't much if any snow during the winter which makes it an excellent place to hike when other places are snowed in. A couple if years ago while hiking the trail there was a rattlesnake that buzzed at my dog on the edge of the trail. Beware if you are hiking with children. That was the only time I saw a rattlesnake but I have heard them a few times.

Short but sweet. Great if you have little ones.

The trail system is behind the Britt grounds. It's across the highway if you park by the library. Wildflowers are everywhere early spring. Watch for poison oak in summer! It's a nice mix of hills and flat.

Easy with kids, just keep the little ones close at narrow parts of trail. Boys loved seeing a few lizards.

Good short hike

Nice little trail in a very good area to hike. Jacksonville did themselves proud on these trails. Something here made my phone decide the GPS wouldn't work for awhile.

Nice trail through an interesting area with many different types of beautiful trees. Come across quite a few people close to the TH.

The trail is nicely wooded, as mentioned before, it is next to the highway so you will hear some traffic noise, overall I would hike this again!

My friend & I walked this on Good Friday it was the 1st hike for both of us this year, & it was very enjoyable. I think everyone who enjoys walking/hiking should try this trail at least once & the new hike trails at Britt (that are being planned) there in Jacksonville should create an even more satisfying day of hiking.

Great easy Hike.

A beautiful early spring day for a hike!

Absolutely perfect at sunset!

The directions to the trails are bad. Never did see the river but it was pleasant. The Panoramic Viewpoint was nice.

This area is nice and right in Jacksonville. It’s pretty easy as well. There really aren’t much views or things to look at, but if you are in the area and wanted to take a break from the city, I supposed this could
Be a nice refreshing walk.

Directions took me to a cemetery... I don't know if I just missed it or my directions weren't working but I wasted 30 minutes of my time and gas. Never had this happen before.

Really pretty view from the top of panoramic view/trail (I think that’s the name). There are a bunch of trails we went to a couple different ones. If you donate 50cents you can get a super informative pamphlet. I believe the price is to assist in maintaining the park so if you take one I think it’s only right to donate! Anyways, it’s a super easy trail, a couple uphill but many downhill and flat areas. I would definitely recommend this trail, it has an awesome view and is very shaded. Watch out for ticks! My dog got one in her armpit so make sure to check your clothing and body as well as your pets.

This trail was super pretty, didn’t get to see any water it was mostly dried up. It was very shaded and the trees had those beautiful fall colors. It was fairly flat and some places had small paths so stay close to the inner part of the path so you don’t slip! This trail is right next to the Britt ! So don’t follow your gps, just type in Britt gardens and there is a road with parking specifically for the trail visitors!

Great hike with kids. Lots of history from around the area.

Nice trail that provides both hills and flat spots.

Easy to get too with some really pretty views. A couple steep parts but a rest in there and you'll do just fine. Perfect for kids.
