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.

Nice trail, good for kiddos. My boys are 5 and 7, they did great.

good for beginners but not kid friendly. my 6 year old would not have been able to hike these hills. but a great place for me to work out, unfortunately not mountain pretty enough though.

Would be great if it didn't run along a major road. The road noise ruined it. But it's great for locals to take a walk or for anyone who wants an easy trail run.

We walked the Shade Creek trail and it was very nice, shaded, cool, pretty and easy.

It is easy and good for the hole family.

Love hiking this area and the beautiful scenery

Love this area!!!

Easy to find. Many different trails springing from one parking area. Different difficulty levels. Something for everyone.

This trail was really pretty, took a couple of hours to complete, and had a nice variety of nature, but we were pretty disappointed that you could hear the sounds from the busy road nearby the majority of the trail. It definitely took away from our enjoyment of the scenery to hear cars rushing by.
