One of my favorite areas in Rome. You can make this hike much longer by taking the blue trail which basically acts as an out and back halfway through the green trail (and you get a Creek to cross). Also a yellow trail which I haven't been on. All in all it is a fun trail and by no means easy. Should be moderate especially as you go on the rockier, creekier and steeper blue trail

Nice trail. A few trees down. Found myself on the Flower Glen Trail (blue markers) as sun was setting. Went off trail to get back to the Green markers (Marshall Trail) then off trail again to get out before dark. Go earlier in the day so you don’t switch trails accidentally in low light.

Well marked trail with unmapped trails off the main loop. Elevation is pretty significant and it was helpful to have trekking poles to navigate loose rocks and debris. Will hike this again and explore red blazed spur trail or blue blazed Glen Trail.

My 4 year old enjoyed the Dorsey Loop trail, we did the 1.4 mile loop one evening after work, trail was well marked, we seen alot of deer. Be careful there are some loose rocks. trail was very clean, no trash what so ever. The blue spur trail (Flower Glen Trail) is very well marked now and goes down in elevation fast and has alot of switchbacks and follows the creek back to horseleg creek rd, I dont reccomend walking back to the parking lot along the roadside, there is no shoulder and the cars are going very fast up and down horseleg creek rd. It is better to turn around at the end and retrace your steps back to the Dorsey Loop Trail.

Took my little dog out, wanted a short, fun hike and that is what we got. We saw a couple other cars/people in the parking lot but no one else while out on the trail. The path to the trail loop is only very slightly grown over and is still clearly visible, and the trail itself is well marked and easy to follow.

It was a ok trail. Lots of rocks and not too much to see. There is a overlook along the backside of the loop

So the main loop is called Dorsey Trail loop. There are 2 Spurs off the loop. if you go right onto the loop, the first one is called "To Flower Glen trail" this spur goes down to to Flower Glen Trail that parallels with creek and has wildflowers on it. It ends as it hits Horseleg road. It is not very well kept and there are no markers on the tree. The second spur is marked red, it goes about 0.25 miles on the ridge before ending at private property. This and the loop will have views of the mountain tops through the trees during the winter.

There are 2 separate trails here. From the parking area to the left is the Braille trail. To the right is the loop trail. This trail is a short loop, not bad. Overgrown near the parking lot, but it does get better.

nice little trail kid friendly with a 1/4 Mike part that is handicap/blind friendly. not sure why it's called flower Glen on this app it's actually the Marshall forest. and the best way to get here is to turn on horse leg creek and go about 4 miles and it's on the right
