I’d say it’s more of an easy trail but there are lots of roots and rocks that you might trip over if you aren’t paying attention. Over all it’s a nice trail for a stroll and visit with nature.

Nice little trail close to the city. Runs along the river and ends near some ruins and an old farmhouse.

Great simple hike. Well covered and goes along a creek with access to the water at several spots. Lots of parking.

Nice trail. Very flat. Ends at an old collapsed mill and you can continue up to a covered bridge up a small trail.

Great trail for a mid-week reset from the hustle and bustle or change of scenery from walking the dog around the block.

I liked this trail a lot. It’s scenic and really easy to walk. I’d suggest it for a family outing or if you want an easy, but longer walk by yourself or with a dog.

Very pretty but short. To add any length means joining the Silver Comet Trail, which is nice but not challenging. If you want to walk you dog or get the kids out on a safe trail, this is the one. Otherwise, skip it and head somewhere more visually and physically stimulating.

My go to trail when it’s not rained out

Tuesday, May 08, 2018

This was a great trail for me and my teens. We ditched our homeschool lessons to get out in nature and we were not disappointed. The trail is moderate and very shady-perfect for warm spring or summer hiking. There are some graveled portions of the trail, however, no more than usual as compared to any other trails we have been on. There is also lots of dirt path to travel on. There are also picnic tables neatly nestled along the path which I thought was a nice touch. We enjoyed hearing the sound of the creek rustling by us as we passed it by as we got closer to the ruins. I would have loved to see some historical information about the mill ruins-just the homeschooler in me-but there were none. As per another visitor’s suggestion, upon approaching the ruins, we continued uphill to meet up with the Silver Comet Trail path and hiked all the way back around to our parking spot down Fontaine Rd. My kids found the trail very exhilarating and that’s saying a heck of a lot. We will definitely hike there again.

Completely gravelled, barely any off trail parts. Mainly people running a decent trail.

Heritage Park is Absolutely Gorgeous, Peaceful, And Fantastic For Either Hiking, Walking, Run , DogWalking Or Relaxing. Must Go Again.

Scenery is beautiful. I wish it was marked better. It’s a little confusing. Great easy hike though.

This is a great “clear your mind” after-work stroll. Nothing too strenuous, and in the winter months you can clearly see the backyard of big houses across the creek. We hiked this during the big snow in early Dec., and the boardwalk area was downright gorgeous. Glad to have experienced it under those conditions.

We didn't do the whole hike, but stopped at the abandoned buildings about halfway through and turned around after that. The hike itself wasn't very eventful, just a flat straight trail with a creek besides it. The buildings were cool though, which is why I gave 3 stars for this one.

Beautiful easy trek

A bit secluded. I've walked it alone with my dog but I feel safer when I have company. Wooden bridge crosses semi-marsh toward beginning of trail. This trail connects to the iconic Silver Comet Trail.

Enjoyed a lazy walk from the SCT to the bottom where the old mill structures are located. so nice to have the peacefulness of a creek in the area. Accessed the creek in several places. People do have their dogs unleashed in the area to let them go in and out of the creek.

We started from the Concord trail head on the SCT which was very busy on a Saturday August morning. We quickly got onto the Heritage park trail that does not allow bikes, so was quieter but still many walkers and dog walkers. The paved switchbacks lead down to the creek and the mill ruins. Then the trail turns to a wide easy dirt path that follows the creek. There are multiple areas that you can access the creek and we allowed our dog to wade on leash and spash around. We walked east towards the Fontaine road trailhead. Wear bug spray! I was eaten alive! But it was a beautiful hike.

Perfect trail for an easy walk or jog. No bikes allowed. The path is gravel with some tree roots poking up. Park at the Heritage Park lot on Fontaine Rd. and you'll have access to a pavilion and bathrooms. The trail is about 3.5 miles round trip so if you stop to take in the scenery of the foliage and creek, it could take you 1.5 to 2 hrs to return. What I like to do is start at Heritage Park and once you get about 1.5 miles in, you will come to some abandoned mill ruins and paved access to the Silver Comet Trail. If you head uphill to access the SCT, you can go left to reach the Concord Rd parking lot a couple tenths of a mile. If you go right, you'll get to travel about 1.5 miles to reach the Fontaine Rd parking lot access point and Heritage Park is just down the road a few more minutes on the sidewalk. It makes a nice loop. I expect most people stop at the mill ruins and turn back or move onto the SCT. However, if you stay on the path along the creek, you can walk another 15 minutes. There are some great views of the creek and rapids below (best view in the Winter when the leaves are gone). You will end up at the covered bridge on Concord Rd. There is a plaque for the Battle of Ruff's Mill on July 4,1864.

As of December 2013, I noticed For Sale signs along the side of where the trails should be according to my GPS.

All in all it's a nice trail great for family hike for couple to 3 hours getaway. You don't get completely way they are drainage culverts lighting the path and some houses in the distance but it was nice.

Had a great hike with the kids

Sunday, June 03, 2012

A nice place to walk and take the kids. The creek is chilly enough to swim in and have fun. Look for the rope swing into the creek. The waterfalls are also a treat. If you're up for an adventure walk under the East West Connector in the drainage tunnel. Spooky, but fun.
