So disappointing that dogs and geocaching aren't allowed and now even Ingress and Pokemon go are being restricted. Beautiful trails that should be encouraged to be used. I have been here various times, but not being a bird watcher, I mostly see squirrels.

Fun trail to walk and run. Lots of hills and scenery. A little wet in some areas when I was there (March) but not too bad. Well used but not crowded.

Amazing trail system with several routes you can take. As for getting here, you should look for Highland Spring Rd. Go to the end of that and take a right on Montello then quick left into the parking area. I tried to reassign the location mark and with luck Google will work better for getting here.

Excellent trails, well marked. The trail map did not indicate difficult areas. It was very wet but there is still some snow and no bugs so I particularly enjoyed this time of year.
