Nice wooded hike. Mostly flat. Definitely overgrown in some areas from lack of use. A little difficult to follow the trail at the end. Had to cross a creek that was a little Difficult. Also not sure why you see posted signs on parts of the trail. You also see park signs on those same spots so it’s kind of odd that there are posted signs. Overall very nice hike. Very happy it’s open again.

Great trail - little to no elevation, but not the best for running - a lot of roots and it’s easy to trip. Beautiful views. It was busy, especially in the beginning but that tapers off during the second part if you do the entire 4 miles.

The trail is open. The fee is waived for now. There were several private property signs on the trail and in some places it was a bit overgrown.

Hey this area is actually CLOSED right now! The gate was left open today by accident and I bumped into a ranger who kindly let me finish running, but it is CLOSED.

I have enjoyed this trail throughout my life. I recommend driving to the very end. When getting to the trail take a right, this will be longer and more enjoyable. Taking a left is shorter and muddier towards the end. The scenery is great and the people are nice, happy trails!

Great flat trail along river but very muddy after a week of rain. Saw one runner on trail but not another soul. Big parking lot. $5 fee unless you have a pass from USPD.

Really nice trail. Mostly easy with moderate hills to climb. From the parking lot out where it crosses over private road is mostly 2 people wide and clear. After this it gets less clear and narrowed down to 1 person path but we had no problem following the apps trail map. Follows along River is parts and other parts lots of secluded woods. Trail is longer than 4.4 miles. We turned around at 2.2 and there was still more in the loop we didn’t get to.

Pretty good trail mostly flat, can get lost since there are a lot of options to go left or right. Follow the maps and you can find your way back.

This is a really lovely moderate little hike. My only complaint is irresponsible dog owners running around without their animals off leashes. I was going to bring my own dogs and decided at the last minute not to. For that I am grateful because three unleashed animals would have rushed my dogs in there would have been a fight without a doubt. Other than that it was lovely… Will post pictures

Beautiful hike along the Hootch. Rooty in places but view is awesome.

Easy trail. Several places with exposed tree roots though, so wear proper shoes. Great scenery to walk by the river. Opportunity to see wildlife. Enjoy!

Nice trail, but a little deceiving. Though you hike parallel to the river, there are almost no spots to actually walk “on” the water.

This is a good trail for running or jogging. There are on about 3 fairly steep inclines. So I walked up those. But over all a nice trail

Great hike. There is enough of a hill for a good workout, but not too hard. Some of the trails were not easy to see, but trail posts were frequent.

Nice hike along the river for the most part, it seems they have added more of the trail markers since the last time which is very helpful when you get to the far end and the maze of trails there.
