Great mix of terrain for a trail run. Beautiful scenery, a good mix of climbs and gentle downs. Only challenge was staying on trail while running; there's a lot of side trails and junctions where you have to stop to figure out which way to go... accidentally headed south right off the bat and ended up climbing to the top of the highest saddle in the area. Great views though and I got to race the sunset!

Just finished the Aspinwall loop with a six-year-old and four-year-old and dog in tow. Was a very easy walk, wouldn't necessarily call it a hike. The kids walked it easily with no complaints of fatigue. This is a ver well-maintained trail, especially Nice for those not looking for tricky terrain or massive elevation changes. For those looking more for a hiking experience, it proves to be unexciting. Would definitely do it again with friends, but probably not by ourselves. Make sure to bring mosquito spray as it was pretty buggy and I got bit a bunch of times.

We chose this trail due to proximity to us and with the "view" selection. We saw the "overlook" by the overlook trail and wasn't much of an overlook. You see couple of mountains at a distance. The trail was good as most of it was shaded. Failing to remember mosquitoes repellant, bites everywhere!!!

Always good to walk Kennedy Park. We'll choose a different trail, depending on where we park and how much time we have. Great views from the overlook. Yesterday we took Bridle to Coakley (Main) out to Log Hop and back. Perfect weather and Log Hop is very quiet.

The trails are great. They are all very well labeled and it is near impossible to get lost. The trails range from easiest to most difficult. The easy trails are open with little to none debris (roots & rocks). The most difficult are very technical in that they have steep up hills, that seem to go forever, while being covered with large rocks. These tracks are also much narrower than the easiest trails.

This is a great place for any rider. I would not recommend this place if you are still sore from a previous ride though.

This is a great series of trails for walking, running, or mountain biking. The trails are all linked to one another like a small town in the forest. If you hit each of the trails it totals about 5 miles. There are some great lookout areas with beautiful views and benches scattered throughout the trails in case you want to take a break. This is a pretty easy but very enjoyable trail. If you park at the Arcadian Shop, you can run inside and grab a printed map of the trails before you start.
