Nice trail, good variety in scenery. A bit too close to the freeway, never really get away from the noise, but overall a solid trail.

Good in the spring and fall. Would be pretty hot in summer. Trail very rocky and hard for young kids. Nice view of reservoir. I would hike in and out on the Jones trail and then make the loop with young kids.

Worse than I imagined with the highway. The first mile if this trail is like the highways side walk. Not enjoyable. Would not do again. Maybe start part of this look at Lexington reservoir. Good for running. Many people On the trail with and without masks. Wouldn’t do this one again

Not everyone wore masks. Loud from highway for half of it but the Jones trail and middle section was great

Nice wide trail - easy for COVID distancing. a little crowded in the afternoon and some road noise at the first stretch. Very pleasant hike with a decent uphill portion. Would consider easy to moderate - good place to meet up with a friend and chat!

There is way too much noise from highway 17. So if you want peace and relaxation, this is not your trial. Also as the reviews mention, it is a heavy trafficked trail. The only “nice” thing was the reservoir.
