I hiked this during the beginning of November and the leaves were beautiful. It was an easy hike as advertised but there was a modest incline toward the end of the loop that got the heart rate up a bit. My Dad and I clocked 6.45 miles in 2 hours and 52 minutes.
This is a good trail except it's not 10 miles. It's actually 6.6 miles. This time of year was very beautiful with several gorgeous views of the forest floor with colorful leaves. Some parts of the trail were rocky but still not too difficult.
Easy trail. No view. Would potentially mtn bike but not hike again.
Great hike - especially if you haven't been in a while. Not overly crowded which is nice. Saw a bear in the home stretch so that really got the adrenaline going! Will definately be back another day.
Overall well kept trail. The sound of the creek and multiple, small waterfalls was very peaceful. A few inclines, but a good trek for us and our dog!
Only 5.8 miles on flat creek loop but there are other trails other than the loop you can do to extend mileage. Little over 1,000 elevation climb on Flat Creek Loop. Mostly smoothed trail with some rocks. No vista views but pretty creeks.
