The pluses of this hike: 1. Dog could go off leash which is not necessarily common in this area. 2. I only came across one hiker & one mountain biker, despite the fact that I was hiking midday on the weekend. The minuses: 1. You might miss the turn off from the wide trail into the narrow single-track (as I did) and walk for 15-20 minutes before realizing you’re wandering off into the wilderness. Luckily, I had cell service which helped me locate my mistake on the map. 2. Nice forested trail but no water views.

Trailless nice but eventually tries to take you down a dirt bike path that doesn't seem super safe. We found it was a better idea to keep going up the gravel drive. It just seemed safer.

This was a great find, thanks to this app. Right off the neighborhood. The first part is a dirt road, but keep an eye on the map, since the turnoff for the loop is a single track and was pretty muddy and obscured by water when I went. This trail has a little of everything and is perfect for a quick loop.

Great wide trail, park right at trailhead. While rated as easy there is definitely an incline at parts so be prepared for that and rocky trail. Beautiful views! Hiked with our dog off leash and he lives it!

Semi hard to find the forks, I trekked up the road and split off at the first sign of another trail; somewhat slim but always easy to follow. This wooded hike will set you out about an hour and a half + rests. Definitely will start using this loop as a warm up when near Homewood.

Fun trail to drive up, really easy with a great view of the lake at the top.
