The trails are not well marked.

Beautiful trail, poorly marked. After a couple of trips constantly checking the map, I finally have a clearer idea of the trails and it’s one of my favorites. Would be 5 stars but for the poor markings.

This is one of Steve and I's favorite trails. It was so nice out today we saw a lot of deer, squirrels, birds, and even a rabbit. There a lot of different types of trails to pick from which is good for different levels of hiker's.

Lots of people at the park but not many on the trail. And everyone on the trail was practicing very good physical distancing. Good trail to get the heart pumping but not to the point of being a difficult trail. Trail markings not very good and the app was confusing at times but managed to stay on trail. Bentley absolutely loved this trail! All in all a good mental health, stress venting day. By the way, the park rangers are strictly enforcing the resovoir closure, can't even stop to take pics! This will certainly be on my return to list when all the craziness is over. Stay safe and keep your distance from fellow hikers. We will get through this! God bless America.

Beautiful scenery peaceful. Hill climbs & 2 stream crossing for loop I took. Crossed red with green. Wide pathways mostly all dirt and stones. Saw 2 bucks and a doe and lots of birds. Hawk and Pileated Woodpecker also.

Definitely a moderate hike with a nice mixture of rocky inclines and flat smooth trails. A nice warm late winter sunday, so lots of happy people and dogs to greet. Highly recommend!
