This is an easy trail, perfect for families with younger children. The trails are wide and well maintained. Trails run along Yellow Creek which makes for a nice, serene walk. Plenty of benches and rocks to stop and sit on for a quick break.

Amazing! Well worth the drive! I will be back after my knee repairs itself! Mulched trails are a plus!

Nicely worn trail with beautiful views, several different bridges, creeks, benches along the way if you need to rest, and not overly crowded. I only passed 3 people during my walk (on a Sunday afternoon). I wouldn't necessary rate this as "easy" because when I think of easy trails, I think of ones that older/elderly people can walk, or those who are beginners. There were several parts throughout the trail with pretty steep inclines and declines that an older person, or a beginner might have to over exert themselves. However, if you take your time, and go when the weather isn't too warm, it's not that bad of a walk.

The bridge has been fixed! Its a great place for running. The trail is thick mulch so it never gets muddy and its low impact.

Pretty easy trail and can complete pretty quickly. Has some pretty streams that are all orange from not sure clay or slate.

Nice easy trail, unfortunately they have removed one of the covered wooden bridges. With no replacement in the near future, you can not complete the loop.

Nice trail but the mosquitoes were pretty heavy the last time I was there. Trail head post is a little confusing and gives different lengths.

Easy to find and get to. Perfect for a quick 30 minute walk through the woods. Not a place to break a sweat.
