Evansburg State Park is in southcentral Montgomery County between Norristown and Collegeville. Evansburg offers a significant area of green space and relative solitude in an urbanized area. Its main natural feature, the Skippack Creek, has dissected the land into ridges and valleys that create feelings of enclosures and provide scenic views. The narrow valley was first settled and farmed by Mennonites who also powered their industries with the water of the Skippack. Even now, mill remnants, mill buildings and houses from the eighteenth and nineteenth century dot the park landscape and serve as reminders of early American life. Today, the park is a quiltwork of cropland, meadows, old fields and mature woodlands that attracts day use visitors from the Montgomery County and Philadelphia areas. People come to the open play fields, picnic areas, trails, golf course and the relatively tranquil, natural environs.

Found the horse trail incredibly difficult to follow, almost no markings and never at the many path intersections. Constantly checking my phone to make sure I was still on the trail detracted from the enjoyment of being out in nature.

well it is January.... the path was muddy and had lots of horse dropping too. but other than that a nice walk

Great hike and a beautiful day to start 2017. Challenging and peaceful throughout the entire year.

Definitely on the easier side. If you do the Horse trail watch out for horse turds. It was cold to day so they were all frozen. Also, if you plan on doing the entire Horse trail as a loop you do have to cross a large creek which I would have done in a warmer weather. No worries, you can hike up the road to a bridge and cross the stream. It's not far and there was a very defined trail on the over side that led right back to the trail. I certainly wasn't the first to do that.

Beautiful scenery I would consider this easy not moderate

Not well marked at all. I'm an avid trailer and got lost twice the first time around. Luckily, other hikers were very helpful. An absolutely beautiful trail once you find your way.

Not well marked at all!

I just moved to the area so I wanted to check out the park. I wasn't able to find the actual trail until the end of my run. Once I did, I really enjoyed it. When I first started I ran on a pseudo trail around the fields. Beautiful views but no where to really go and high grass. I'll definitely go back now that I know where the actual trail is and out down some miles.

Came here with great company and has a blast. The trails were moderate, but were a ton of fun due to the small footing challenge.
There was a whole lot of horses all over the trails back in Evansburg.
The water appeared very clear and the dog had a blast putting her feet into the water.
Unfortunately, the camera had lost battery so we were unable to take any pictures...we will have to go back again because the park was stunning.

Not sure why this trail has not been reviewed because it was the first one that we set foot on due to where we parked. Was a neat little trail.

Be careful for horse poop...especially along this trial!

not well marked later in the trail, easy to less moderate difficulty, varied terrain, lots of guns shots on Saturday am, more popular later in the day.
