Hardwood is a great trail. Rocky and lots of climbing so I would rate it higher than moderate. Looked like it hadn't been worked on for a while - a bunch of downed trees over the trail and overgrown near the river.

Relatively moderate trail, the weather was perfect for January, but it had rained the night before, so some parts took a little bit to maneuver (which I always enjoy a bit of climbing around). The gps on the app was super helpful in not going off the trail!

Been coming in November and December and I rarely see more than one other hiker. Great place to let the dog roam off leash during the slow winter months. First time through the trail can be hard to follow in spots but the app's GPS never fails to put me back on track and even help to blaze a new trail.

12/27/16. 50 degrees, what? A bit icy by the river. Great hike. Stopped by the Roadhouse after for a drink. Life is good. Cheers

Great afternoon hike with the family. Made a few wrong turns but the good old gps map got us back on track. We will be back

Beautiful trail system, includes river views, open spaces along power line with wild flowers and butterflies in addition to wood trails. Great for hiking and trail running.
