Took the kids and it was great for them. Would be a good trail for dogs on a leash, and also trail running.

Nice easy trail. We have completed it several times with our dog, toddlers walking, and baby in the pack. For the loop, we suggest starting on the Low Gap portion and returning on the Mason Ridge Portion. There are several stream/drainage crossings, so it gets muddy if there has been rain.

Nice easy trail. Lots of downed trees. Park has lots of potential- low traffic!

I went out to Morgan Monroe today with my wife and our dogs to get some trail time since it was so nice out. Things were great until we got half way through the trail and found out that they've closed the entire southern portion of this trail and a large portion of the Tecumseh Trail while they destroy half of the forest for a bike path. I really love this place and I hate to rate it so low, but to not even reroute the track and just close it like this is horrible.

Hiked this loop starting at the low gap trailhead. The trail is relatively easy, but does have some decent elevation change. It's hard to channel the ol' inner woodsmen though, being so close to the road for most of the loop. Still an excellent 3.5 mile jaunt.

Hiked this a couple of weeks ago and the trail was really muddy at the time so it took a little longer for us to complete than it normally would. Parts of the trail are nice, parts of it run along the road. We also heard a lot of gun shots in the background, like someone was doing target practice.
