Beautiful! Enjoyed this trail and will definitely go back. The hill was a challenge but made it up :)

Great trail with moderate inclines and declines, great for the beginner!

Beautiful walk for all levels. Paved road all around.

beautiful trail, but not marked well. got lost lol.

The highlight of this trail for sure is the small abandoned cemetery. I can’t wait to go back in the fall or winter when it’s not so overgrown so I can really take a good look. Take bug spray if you go this time of year! And also, a park ranger was driving down the trail in a van so I was super happy to have obeyed the rules and keep my dog on a leash.

Actual length of full trail is 3.71mi.

Beautiful place well kept up with can't wait to go again

Great trail. Short but easy to do the loop twice. Dog friendly

I run on this trail pretty often. One of my favorites routes to take when starting a run from Ridley Creek State Park. Beautiful long stretch along the creek with a view of the golf course on the other side.

We enjoyed this hike through the woods and along the creek. My Golden Retriever loves it!

This is an excellent family trail. Lots of spots to splash in the water. It is an easy hike for families.

This is a great trail to take kids on. There is a lot of elevation change, but it is staggered throughout the trail.

Great solstice Hike!

sometimes hard to follow; lots of elevation changes

Great short hike, not boring. Along water. Big boulders to climb in the creek

Pretty good! I think the trail changed bc you can see a white arrow that gets blacked out, and an alternative route- so it may be different from the map outline shown on the app. From the stables, you follow the paved road for a bit, passing two yellow trail entrances, and finally hit a blue AND white entrance. Starts together, then separates

Good hiking, some deep incline keeps the variety. But the trail markers are very poorly kept. Pretty hike, spots by the water are gorgeous. Plenty of areas for rest and to refill on water.

Very busy day on the trails.

Really nice walk. Couple of hills to go up and down (watch for roots). The map on this app DOES NOT match up with the actual white trail. With about a quarter left in the walk make sure to pull the app out and follow the red gps line (pretty much end up on the yellow trail).

I hike and/or run this trail often. Great when you don’t have time for a long trek. The hill is challenging and the creek is beautiful.

Great trail, very peaceful on this Easter Saturday. I wouldn’t really call it a loop more an in and out trail except for small loop at one end.

Nice trail, however stay away right now because they are deforesting sections of the trail because of a problem with emerald ash trees. There were no signs to let me know so I was walking through deep mud tracks from large vehicles and in front way off trail trying to get around all the down trees in the way. It was a hassle and very unpleasant. I'm not sure when it will be completed (I hiked this on March 6, 2018).

Closed!!! Drove all the way here just to find no access because of tree removal! Bummer!

I am on the fence about rating this trail a 5. Wish we could give half points. This amazing 2.25 mile trail takes you through everything you want. Its a loop, flats overlooking the babbling creek. One steep section with ~100 feet of elevation that plateaus to allow you to stretch out. A picnic table about a third of the way right where you want it. Only reason why not a five is because there isn’t a vista panoramic view to top it off. Sorry Hawk Mountain has set a high standard. Visited the trail in February and am going to return during every season. Was able to hike the trail in just over an hour with a group of 12 including young Cub Scouts.

I love this path along the creek. This trail is hilly so I recommend bringing water with you. This is one of my favorite hikes but be prepared for the steep hill.

"It's a trap, It's a trap lol " Be careful , lots of detours and cut trees making it easy to lose trail. Crosses often with white & yellow trails.
Overall great sights, streams and views.

Great short hike - some water, only minor elevation / a few ducks - great way to spend a little time connecting to the earth.

1st snow of the season this morning.

This is our go-to trail when we need to get out of the City. We've hiked it countless times in all sorts of weather. It's a gem!
