Beautiful well marked trail. Lush foliage with ferns, trees and moss. Very well maintained. Saw a few friendly trail runners. Did not see horses on the trail but saw droppings but no big deal. This is a trail worth running!

Super easy trail. Did it after having surgery just to get back out and moving again.

Walked dogs on it and rode it horseback on two different days .. very nice and peaceful

Awesome easy trail! Lots of side trails to explore! Trail is very well marked & it’s mostly in the shade! Very enjoyable!

awesome time with our 2 year old and dog

This was a great hike for myself, my husband and 5 year old. The trail was well maintained and very well marked with lots of side trail to take.

good fun easy level trail for anyone

Easy to get to and easy hike. Shared with horses and even though there are signs to scoop the trail is littered with horse manure.

Great trail! The trail itself is in great shape, it’s well marked and there are lots of options for adding distance. Will definitely be doing this one again.

Easy, varied, shady, interesting, short. Well used by horses so you need to watch your step.

Overall, really awesome trail that is well marked (just keep to the right at every intersection to maintain the longest outer loop). I started in the horse parking lot off 21st and went down Raspberry Trail to start - runs alongside field to the right of the forested entrance (where we ended). Main problem is the amount of horse poo. It was everywhere, and I mean every couple feet for four miles. My dog was great with commands, but he could NOT have done it off leash. I’d be afraid of him eating it, rolling in it, or smelling a horse and chasing it down. Thankfully horse poo is mostly hay, so it wasn’t stinky. The fresh bits were easy to spot, and even though the dry stuff was hard to decipher from regular ground matter, it didn’t stick to my boots.

My husband and I love to come run these trails! Yes, you have to dodge quite a bit of horse poop, but that doesn’t bother us. The scenery is gorgeous and the short steep hills are great for getting into shape!

Really pretty walk that’s family friendly. Steep in some areas, about 350 foot elevation gain according to Garmin. Lots of loops to do. We did about 4 miles worth. Muddy in some spots, horse droppings too. Will return for sure.

It’s a nice and pretty trail but too much steep up and down hill for mountain biking. I had to walk my bike up too many times. Also really muddy right now.

Horses are definitely priority. Lots of poop. The scenery is beautiful. Just be aware that you will be dodging the horse poop. You can go way further than the 2.1 miles. We went 2.5 and we didn’t even get around the whole loop. Would be a great place to bike or trail run. We saw a few out there.

I took my 2 year old for his first hike. It was really toddler friendly. Few steep he handled like a boss and really friendly people (he got to pet two horses). The only issue was his boot got stuck in mud, but it's March so what ya gonna do?

it's a nice trail with some elevation changes but not bad. Liked the shade and maintainence of the trail. Went there a few times but I spent more time dodging horse poop than enjoying the scenery.

Easy to get to and navigate. Other users and visitors are friendly. A lot of small birds and a male harrier today. Fair amount of mud and road apples, but pleasant.

Not for bikes. If you got a mountain bike cool. No kids not cyclocross. It’s a no go for me.

Great place to run, have to dodge horse poo but usually never see horses. Trails are generally flat but some good hills mixed in. Love running here!

Some really steep short sections with sharp switchbacks, but overall nice forest scenery. No major focal points of interest.

Beautiful trails and scenes. This is a series of loops- do all of them for about 3.5 miles. We went about a week ago and the giant maple leaves fell the whole time with yellow sun rays shining through.... damp floor covered in leaves and mushrooms... songbirds and frogs singing constantly. There’s no major feature, but it is some beautiful hiking. Mostly flat. Easily jog-able. Loved it. And the horse poo just didn’t really bother us that much, to be honest.

This place is beautiful and peaceful but the horse owners do not pick up the horses waste like they are supposed to which is very inconsiderate. There is horse shit literally everywhere. This place would be perfect if it weren’t for that.

just watch out for the horse poo otherwise an awsome trail to walk for the whole family. very well maintained.
