Trails are clean and have mostly good footing, especially on the easier trails.
Don't expect spectacular or unique views. You will mostly see woods, some streams and a few bridges. Excellent, though, for hiking and exercise in a natural habitat.
Seems to be good trails for cycling, as we generally meet some on the trial.
Several trail forks have no markings, which can be a bit confusing.

It was nice, but doesn't give you a sense of adventure. It's sort of like an outdoor gym.

Rode the beginner trail today it was very fun and the flow was nice some small jumps and a good wall, was wet in spots but great ride.

Not a difficult trail. Beautiful scenery with creek crossings. The trail does get a bit confusing since it has a few loops that intersect.

Was a fun trail. Was able to take my young children and they made it with ease. Has great views of the lake and some cool bridges

Loved the trails, but the expert trails really need some TLC.

There are different levels and paths of the trails to chose from...

The "Beginner" trail: its always clean when I go, the views are nice and there are always benches to sit and view the scenery and sighs of the different trail heads and views.

The "Intermediate" Trail: not as kept up as the beginner trail, but just as nice of view and good for biking because it has less traffic of people.

The "Advance" Trail: should have a warning like, hope "Have a gps tracker on your phone cause, that's the only way you'll have luck getting back to the trail head." It's so over grown near the end of the trail the first (and last) time I went I had to walk back through the creek for.5miles to find the trail again. Don't waste your time.

Great hiking for myself. I'm a beginner and loved it. Nice trails and clearly marked. I did the green and black trails and had no problems staying on path. The trees that were reported down have been cut and most are clear. We went from PC Park to the suspension bridge. I've always heard about that bridge and now I've crossed it. I will finish the trail to Piney Grove and hike it more often. Don't pass this one up if you need a good hike.
