Wonderful hike if you are looking for something fairly short and easy. I wore tennis shoes which were fine because we had not had much rain but after a good rain I would definitely wear something you don’t mind getting wet in all the stream crossings.

This was a great trail. There are several small stream crossings and two larger creek crossings. The inclines to and from these crossings can be muddy, especially if it has rained recently. It wasn't terribly crowded the day we went, which was a Sunday afternoon. The trail is narrow, and there are lots of rocks embedded in the trail, so you have to watch your step pretty carefully. There were lots of dog walkers too.

Great little trail. Cut by Lots of little streams, and has a little trickling waterfall early on. It starts with a meadow area cut for power lines that is full of wildflowers and pollinators. Small inclines, and can be slick in places if it is recently rained. Would do it again.

I love this trail! I usually hit up Boone Bottoms trail, then head over the Wild Hyacinth for a good workout. Be careful when it's muddy!

Pet friendly & kid friendly trail! Inclines and declines were not very steep and we went off trail a couple times to check out the creek beds. Well marked too. We will be back!

Great trail for a quick hike. Some bugs at this time of the year. Recommend bug spray. Combine with Boone Bottoms Trail for a little more distance.

Excellent trail! Can be muddy in spots so not good for strollers. Gorgeous scenery and easy walk! Trail is marked clearly so good for beginners like me!

Beautiful day and a beautiful trail, lives up to it's name flowers are everywhere! Was a little heavier trafficked than I would have liked but a nice hike either way! Nicest trail I've done here at the parklands so far.

We absolutely loved this trail! We took our two dogs with us and they really enjoyed it as well! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a little adventure! Great for kids as well. There are several little waterfalls along the way. This trail is a little rocky but seemed to be very well maintained. It took us about a hour to complete and the dogs were definitely worn out after and ready to nap we passed people along the way but wasn’t too crowded- just not a lot of space to pass!

It’s a really fun trail and pretty scenery. Slight up and downs but overall good trail for an easy hike. Does cross some creeks and there aren’t bridges, just rocks to step on. It was 80 and sunny, hasn’t rain in awhile and most of the trail was dry. But I suspect it gets pretty muddy after rain.

Easy enough for us and our 6 year old. About 2.25 miles from parking lot and back. Pretty, lots of water crossings to keep the kiddo interested.

The Park's sign says this trail is difficult, but it really isn't. It was dry when we went, so the several creek crossings were a breeze, but could be a bit more challenging when the water is up. A lot of up and down, but all of it mild and easy enough for me (and I am not at all in shape). A fair number of people out, all of them telling loud personal stories, which likely scared away any possible wildlife we could have seen.

I went with my two kiddos (ages 5 & 8), great trail. We saw deer, caterpillars, frogs, and had a great time. Not too strenuous and a great trail for us all.

Easy trail, lots of shade, peaceful. The creek was dry and the flowers were spent. Come spring, this will be a beautiful hike. Also, be aware The Parklands are spread out all over. I started at Beckley Creek Park not realizing Turkey Run park was another 25min. away!

Awesome, moderate trail with great views .several rain dependent waterfalls can be seen. Trail is well maintained and well marked. Several spots have ponding water, due to this there are massive pockets of mosquitos. BIG mosquitos. Just move quickly through these areas and bring your bug spray! Really enjoyed this trail!
