Great trail and so different. Like a moon scape landscape. Well marked first half and not well marked return. Still disappointing broken glass everywhere in one section. Beautiful terrain

Beautiful trail, quite muddy in places. One area about halfway through beside the trail had A LOT of broken glass where there had been parties.

Got turned around a bit as not always marked clearly and had to improvise paths as no bridge. But that’s all part of the adventure!

Wow what an amazing place! Walk on smooth flat rock at the tree tops for an extended period of time. Bring you camera. Beware of poor signage and prepare to get lost and off trail. This happened again and again. If it wasn’t for my phone gps I would still be out there! Beware of the garbage and tons and tons of broken glass on the south Trail of the extended loop. This is obviously a place to gather in large groups. Despite its unique space, I have no plans to visit again soon. Our 1.5 hr hike too 3’hours and thankfully my dog did not get injured on all that glass! Loo

Couldn't do the entire trail due to a missing bridge but I got to do most of the trail. Nice and easy with a couple rock garden areas that made me pick my path a bit more carefully. Lots of puddles on trail because it had rained heavily earlier in the day, so be mindful if you're heading out after a rain.

Great trail. Not too easy, wild and challenging at some points, but still fairly easy to follow. Lots of wildlife if you’re quiet and pay attention.

The main reason this gets a poor review is on 2 occasions I’ve gone off trail accidentally (due to lack of signage) and ended up in a glass graveyard. The WHOLE area is COVERED in broken glass. By the time I realized the glass my dog had already cut his pad on a piece. I had to carry my 70 pound dog across probably a 300m area. I don’t know how it all got there, but it’s dangerous. I’ve never seen so much glass on the ground in my life. The second time it happened I kicked myself for making the same mistake, but also, whoever maintains the park should maybe find this area and either clean up the glass or put signage around it to prevent people from making the same mistake I did.

Hiked this trail on beautiful fall day. A lot of hiking is in open rock areas so would be hot in summer. I imagine nasty bugs as well. Signage/maps needs replacing.

Ok trail. Easy peasy sometime you need rubber boots. Can get very busy in the summertime. Even though it's a sky preserve you can always see light pollution from surrounding towns.
