very nice, well maintained trail. trail set up for both mountain biking and hikers. although I was disappointed that there was no view point or anything special about the trail. you could stare at a picture of a wooded trail and walk 6 miles and it'd have the same effect as if you had walked the whole thing.

The trails have been updated recently and are well maintained. My favorite trail to visit when there isn't time to drive out for a long outing.

Our hike was almost 6 miles on this trail. It was nice with lots of small trails connected. Saw some cool mushrooms, a box turtle, frog, salamander, and some other rock structures. Be sure to snap a pic of the map at the entry point before you go in so you know which way to go. There are other paths that will make the hike shorter if you like.

Kristen and I did this trail on trip to fayetteville. So close to town but the trails are great! Big trees. Cool rocks. Nice views. Lots of elevation change. Loved it. It is now a trail system that is a bit confusing as we did not have map. But trails are great fun.

Beautiful, very well maintained trail. we followed the outermost circle, but there are quite a few places to shorten the hike if needed. Perfect for hiking, trail running, or mountain biking.

Seemed like it was uphill a lot but it was really pretty and curvy and interesting and it really felt like I've burned a lot of calories I enjoyed myself.

Great place to spend a day. Trailhead is no longer accessible from HWY 62(Main Street). You must use the Kessler Mountain Park entrance on Cato Springs Road.

A very good trail. Part is a gravel road for a short distance then the rest is excellent single track. You first climb then it down hill. Great fun. Well constructed and marked
