Parts of the trail on the east loop are completely obstructed by fallen trees that have been that way a good bit of time. If not removed by county park maintenance, be prepared to have to duck and crawl. A potentially decent little trail, but it needs improving.

This hike is nice but is not maintained and it is very swamp like at times.

This is a nice trail if you are looking for to get out for a short walk. I tried to follow the loop in the description map but got a little past the bend and it came to a dead end. I didn't see a path anywhere so I just went back the way I came. I noticed that there are other paths but didn't want to end up at another dead end.

I'll probably come back on a day that doesn't look like it's gonna rain and check out the other trails.

The main path has a little bit a standing water on the trail but other than that the trail is well maintained.

Your GPS will take you straight to this park. It goes through a mobile home park so don't be fooled! Make sure you use your GPS or phone because it has crisscross all over the place. The bridge is closed looks rotten. Part of the trail small part you have to slog through because of ankle deep water. Just a small part though. I did see a rabbit. You will never be far from the noises of the road, but it's an interesting little park. I also saw a turkey footprint

Needed to take the dogs for a walk, nice little area. Bring bug spray.

Pretty little wooded area. Absolutely riddled with trails so it isn't too difficult to get the length you are looking for. We had to make a few loops, but it all worked out. Very clean, and quiet.

Pretty area, but small area of the trail has garbage needing to be cleared, parts of the trail not well defined, and bring some spray because we all got ticks.
