It was fine - a nice morning hike. The only reason I am giving it three stars is because it was painfully difficult to follow the trail marks and the leaves on the ground (hiked in November) made it impossible to follow the trail at points. Definitely bring your phone with you so you can look back at the all trails ap

It was pretty good! At time it was a bit difficult to navigate because there was leaves covering the trail but you just had to look out for the trail markers. It was good but will probably go for another more interesting hike next time.

Nice trail in decent condition. Do the white and yellow trails for the full experience. Nice creek nearby. Turn left at the last bridge and trek at the bottom of the big meadow to get back to the Nature Center.

Great trail. Located very conveniently in the center of Rockville foe people seeking a nature reprise. The trail had a lot of variety with plenty of wildlife and little outlets where you can take a breather. It was a little overgrown in some areas but the woodland loop in particular was very wide open. You should avoid the area I did on my recording as the path is eroded and not very safe right now. There was also a slight sewagey smell right after the bridge but it clears quickly. Overall, highly recommended!

HikingGreat!

The trail is well marked and very nice. Yes, there is a bit of road noise from traffic in some spots but it’s a little slice of wilderness in the city.

I would have given 5 stars but for the road noise. Didn’t see a single person but one in the field area of the main park. Nature center closed due to covid so I couldn’t check it out. Varying terrain. Not too flat. Kept my interest.

Great trail!! A bit overgrown in areas of the ‘yellow trail’ but otherwise well-maintained. Besides a big group of people playing in the river, we only passed 3 people on the whole hike.

I went for the first time last year. Enjoyed the walk through the woods and the nature center where I met an owl:)
