Well manicured walking trail. Not enough off of the path trails. Fairly easy hike.

Easy wide trail that was clearly labeled. Was not very busy at all. Would be a good trail to run. We did not do any of the trails in the middle of the loop, but will try those next time.

Plenty of shorter trails in the middle of the loop and some peaceful spots to hang out for awhile.

Pretty easy trails. A little wildlife. Light human traffic. Dogs OK. Some bike trails. Other stuff here like a camp ground and a little water park and pavilions for picnicking and parties and whatnot. The grounds were well kept.

a lot of spots on the outer loop right next to the river were so low they were swamped. We trudged through quite a bit of mud. The mosquitos out there were insanely bad.

Great easy hike, wide and well-marked. The lower part of Trail 5 can be inaccessible if the water is high. Make sure to bring bug spray!

Nice trail. Don't forget the insect repellent. When the trail crosses the road you need to travel down the road a ways to pick up the trail. If you go directly across the road you switch to trail 4.

Great easy hike. Perfect for dogs or anyone that wants a beautiful day out. Trees, water, animals. This trail has a lot to offer and is free!. I would recommend this hike to anyone.

Completed this trail with 3 of my kids (ages 8, 17, 18) and 2 dogs. Beautiful scenery, trails were easy to follow although we did have some difficulty towards the end with trail markers. Would rate more along easy...

We went on this trail with our 7-year-old daughter. It's easy to walk, but some areas were slightly flooded because of the rain. Mosquitos were out in full force, and we were glad for repellent! The trail is notably wide (we could walk three-across) and not all that isolated (we could hear campers and see residential backyards at several points). However, the bluffs overlooking the White River were more isolated, and the views were rewarding. There are several wooden benches strategically placed along the way.

Nice trail, with some good scenery. We went right after it rained and the river was flooded. It was still raining, but the trees provided plenty of cover. We'll be back again.

I walk this trail often. It's one of my favorites. Love the part along the river, especially.

Good wide trail for walking, hiking and running. Dogs allowed on leash. Runs along a creek which can cause lots of mosquitoes in the summer/wet season. Small hills but not strenuous. +restroom facilities and water sources.
