I really like this hike. Nice variety of trails and mostly pretty flat - nothing too strenuous. It can be a bit muddy, especially at the beginning, but not enough to prevent me from doing it. No spectacular overlooks or anything, but some great views of farmland and streams.

Today I did the whole loop (over 10 miles) and saw more deer than people! Only saw two people the whole way and they were workers towards the beginning. I guess that's the advantage of doing it on a Friday :)

Pleasant and easy. A collection of intersecting trails allows one to vary hikes and make longer or shorter loops. Nice set up.

Some of the trails are very rocky even my horse with front shoes on struggled; if you plan on taking your horse park on Lewisdale Road it's small field in between two horse farms the best trails are that side, Prescott by the golf course are awful

Nice hike! Lots of streams to keep the dog cool and hydrated. Very few people.

Decent hike, but be sure to watch out for the broken glass and trash all over the trail when you get near the camping areas. However, that's really the only downside to the long 8 mile loop. Good for an afternoon in the woods. Bring your pups and let em swim in the creek.

Nice easy, peaceful hike. Be warned that the distance for the hike shown is 8.1 miles, not 4.1 miles. we had to cut it short at 6.4 miles because the dogs were getting tired. :)

Nice trail, good workout! Some trees are blocking some trails due to storm.

The whole area is beautiful and hiking is easy to moderate. The only downside for hikers is that the trails are shared with horses so they are very muddy in areas and there are flies in the summer around the horse poop. If you get to know the trails you can easily avoid those areas.

Great for hiking, biking, horses - might even catch some fish nearby.
