Well maintained cross country trails. Great to use while the kids are in school! Great for dogs but they have to be leashed per park rules. Can’t wait to go back!

This trail is great for easy exercise with hills that offer a bit of resistance. My two small pups did well. A great green space hosted by Columbia County!

Trail is close to evans. It is geared for cross country trail running. It offers diverse slopes and some intertwining sections that nestle in between football and soccer at the center. It is well suited for someone just getting back into hiking.( me). And on a cool fall afternoon winding around the pond was a bit of a surprise. It offers a little excursion into the woods and is rewarding for a progressive start at a short hike.

Not a scenic walk. Part of the trail runs on top of a sewer line, so a little smelly. Long stretches in full sun.

I love the hills and valleys which makes this trail awesome. However, even without recent rain, there were some pretty muddy areas which I don't like to go through on my walks as a personal preference. I will be coming back to this trail on occasion and maybe the muddy areas won't be so bad.

Lots of variety

The trail offers a good mix of inclines and declines, at spaced out in intervals which you can use to your advantage if you like to sprint uphill and run/jog flats for speed workouts.

I give this as an overall for variety. It is great for a slightly challenging run, relaxing walk/heavy pack hike with a family/loved one, or even biking. The trails could use a slightly more improvement. I hope Evans/Columbia County invests in other like areas for the community. Side items include a sports complex with even a skate park! If you visit, leave feedback.

This park is very nice and the path appeared to be a high traffic area frequented by local walkers and joggers. The trail is well maintained and has some fairly scenic wooded areas with mild undulations. It is a good place to go for a little trek and then take a break and enjoy the other elements of the park. I particularly enjoyed watching the folks skating.

I was a little off put by the location. The trail surrounds a park/soccer field area, which creates a sort of juxtaposition -one sport against another- one that I do not like.
Aside from that the trail seemed to be well marked. I think this would be a good one to take your dog for a walk on, but not one I would use to feel "lost in the woods."

It was fun to do the short bit with my toddler, his first hike and he loved it.

I typically hike this 5k loop most mornings as it is close to my house, in the woods and has some hills on it. While if you are trying to prepare for something like Georgia section of the AT this wouldn't really get you fully prepared it is a good trail and isn't enough like a paved highway to feel like a real hike. I enjoy it, it is fairly well maintained and has lots of parking.

Great trail to run. It is actually the Augusta State home cross country course. With the main loop measuring 2.75 miles, it is great for training. If I need more miles, i just run more loops. The trail has varying terrain from gravel to grass and a couple of good hills.
