The trail was stunning. Trees as far as the eye can see, and occasional little ponds made for a peaceful and beautiful adventure. The trails themselves were clean, and clearly marked, making it easy to navigate. I truly wish I had known about this hiking trail while I still lived in Georgetown.

However, there are a few things I wish o had known going into the hike so I could have been better prepared. First, you have to park next to a church, a ways from the trail head. To get to the trail head, you have to walk along a narrow paved road for some time, and pass conflicting signs: one claiming to be private property and the other claiming to be the trail. The trail head is past the private property sign, and once on the trail it is easier to navigate.

Also, because of the nature that is around this area, ticks are a huge problem. I was wearing tall socks and long pants, and I still had ticks everywhere on my legs. Be sure to use some type of tick repellant and check closely for ticks as soon as you arrive home.

Me and the #badassrunners crew love it! it's almost a half marathon for all loops. As all trail runners know there's always opportunities to choose your distance. Beautiful groomed trails in some areas and then some moderate/technical sopts as well. Overall a must visit if on the area. Short drive from highway 75. Enjoy!!

Stopped on our way to Florida from Michigan just to have a break from riding in the car. This is a beautiful trail. The trail keepers have done a great job keeping it nice. Glad we came across it.

From the perspective of a hiker, I could only give it 4 stars. It is designed for mountain bikers, which would make it closer to a 5 star rating for them.

When wet, the trail is slippery and muddy in several areas. As long as you know that going in, it is a great stretch of the legs for hikers.
