Nice trail, well marked. No vistas, no real views. Not much hill climbing. Lovely hike for a hot day because its almost all covered, but take bug spray!

Love this trail. Did anyone else notice the old building near the trail? I think it might be an old root cellar? It's near where that "seat" is carved out of a tree before the long wooded bridge

It was a nice trail, looks like it's better for biking than hiking since that's what most people were doing. But, WARNING! Our group of four found a ridiculous amout of ticks on ourself after this hike! There is a portion where you walk through a field with tall grass so I assume thats where they are but it was really bad when we started picking them off our clothes (at least 10 between us).

I go here almost every day with my dog. I backpacked some mountains in Olymic national park and did this trail everyday before really was great to get me into shape! Wonderful spot!!!

Really Nicely kept- lots of bridges and biking structures. Be careful with bringing a dog because the bikers go very fast on these trails! DO NOT TAKE YOUR DOG OFF ITS LEASH! not too much scenery

I ride here regularly, well maintained. great loop for a good 35-40 minute ride. foot hikers, please don't be intimidated, most riders. will (should) yield to you. Be sure to study the path, it interconnects with several other trails, easy to take a wrong turn.

Easy trail. To make it a bit challenging you could move-off trail deeper into central woods towards the source of maplewood creek for a spectacular view of the falls.

Did the 3 mile northern section in about an hour. Lots of different terrain, would be great for mountain biking.

Labeled Hiking, but definatley alot of mnt bikers out there when I was there. They might add mnt biking to the activities on this trail. Very nice trail to ride on. Plenty of shade and many cool surprises as you venture down the trail
