Trail in decent condition but no signage at all. An uninspiring walk over all. Monotonous scenery. But on a plus we were grateful to be outside.

This was our first time exploring this state park and it was an adventure. There are no signs so we just rode everywhere and ended up on a road using GPS to get back to our vehicle. Mixed flat terrain of pine needles, sand, dirt, mud, a bridge and a small pond. We had to move some fallen tree branches off of the trail. I thought it was beautiful and loved that we felt secluded. We rode about 6.5 miles.

Decent trail, wide access road. A lot of soft and sandy spots.

Beautiful if you want no distractions and not much to look at. Very sandy trails for bike riding. Would probably be a better trail for walking, more experienced bike riders, or horses. Kids had a hard time navigating through the soft sand and around the horse divots and manure.

Decent easy trail throughout. The trail is sandy wide road that traverses the woods. Great for a leisurely walk through the woods with your dog. Decent scenery but nothing spectacular. If you’re looking for a more exciting adventure then this wouldn’t be the trail for you. The trail did get a bit boring in parts. Also none of the trails had any type of markers and there was a few cut offs that again had no identification. I followed the trail map on here mostly but there are a few throughout that are not marked on here. Overall a decent hike but would’ve liked more traditional trails deep in the woods. This is also an active horseback riding trail so watch out for the occasional droppings.

Very flat, easy, wide path through the woods. No markings but easy to follow outer loop. Abundant deer. Nice state forest- pretty in the woods with the pines. Watch out for horse divots/manure.

A decent, easy trail with wide paths through most of the forest. The trails are not marked but can be followed without difficulty., especially if you check against the map. There are several, narrower side trails that lead through a new pine forest or to a lovely frog pond. The bugs were nearly nonexistent with use of a deet spray, but did find one deer tick on me. A wonderful place to spend a warm summer day.

First the good - its quiet, not alot of people and close to home. Now - trail markers are non-existent. We ended up riding on the road to get back to the truck I hate road riding. You basically take your life into your own hands because cars aren't looking for bikes on back roads and going way faster than you are! Thank goodness for the trail map to help get us back!

Trail was just ok, for biking the trails were a bit sandy and tough going. Trail was gravel and sand for most part. No markings at all on trail and extremely empty. It wasn’t a terrible trail, just would not rush back again anytime soon. Nice drive there though very pretty countryside.

Easy flat loop. Took us just over an hour. Watch out for ticks! My wife just found one on her leg!

Wonderful easy 5 mile trail. Highly recommended bug spray. Mosquitos are bad. Trail is not marked. Several off trails. It will make your life easy if you leave this map up so you can track your way around.

We took our dog and hiked around, and while it was beautiful- the insects and ticks were really bad in the summer. Be sure to check yourself after hiking! We did not have any ticks embed, but we found 7 on us and our dog.

Very nice loop as well as many side trails. You can see many trees in multiple stages of life as well as some meadow type area in between the pines. This was an enjoyable winter hike. As a local to the area, I would recommend heavy bug spray in the summer months. I did not give full 5 stars due to the fact that nothing is marked. I had to rely on the gps to lead the way down the many winding trails.

Trail is not marked and is a sandy service road. Not the worst thing, but wasn't expecting. Redeeming quality was the large forest pines out there.

Did a 13.2 mile run there the other Saturday, and didn't see a single other person. There are lots of side trails and lanes cut in that you can explore.

Great area the trail allows you to walk, bike or horseback. Its well kept, very quiet and has alot of parking and port a pottys at the beginning of the trail. The drive is not toooooo bad from Ocean City, MD, and its less than 2 miles from major stores and gas stations. The park also has a public catch and release pond, camping areas and bbq pits and covered picnic tables.

This is a nice, steady trail through the wooded tract. Redden State Forest actually has several tracts and several trails. Today, we did the 'Headquarters Tract' and its accompanying trail. Around 5 miles, it was sided by small meadows, one full of milkweed blowing as fairies in the sky -- gorgeous! Lots of birds and bugs to look at. Deer scat, but no sign of the deer.
