Really nice, super clean trail. Not too intense and just long enough to get some fresh air and take on a few nice spots. There's a nice creek with an adorable place to even get in the water. Would be a great little hike to bring the dogs and I noticed it has some really neat, windy bike trails off the main trail. I really like this hike because it loops perfectly around in a circle... only took about 40 minutes to walk.

love it I'm glad they finally did something with bear hole for the community that lives in West Springfield other than people dumping their. me and the neighbor take our dogs out almost every weekend for a walk. I just got two new mountain bikes for me and my son and we are going to start heading out there and try to do it every day it's a peaceful quiet place and you always find new Beauty that you haven't seen before. great job what Springfield

The waterfall is modest yet beautiful. Nice place for an easy walk.

I know I already rated it, but I wanted to add 1 more thing for people who take dogs there that are scaredy cats, like ours. Somewhere within hearing distance there is a sportsman club, or something like that. Sounds like a target shooting area. That's the only thing that ruins it.

We had a fun walk w our pup, Max! The waterfall was really pretty! It was nice having a path next to the water, to keep Max cool and hydrated!!

My family and I had a great hike exploring a hidden gem in my home town. I never knew there were hiking trails in Bear hole until this app. Thank you! We did do the shorter inner loop, just because of a time restraint, but it was about 2.7 miles in 1 hour, according to my Endomundo. It was just what we needed to break up our day of house work and work work. We will definitely be exploring more in the near future!

This as a great hike. A little gem hidden in west Springfield. Lots of trails to explore. If you want to do the loop on this ap bring your phone and track yourself. Trails are not marked, very easy to get lost. So worth doing the loop. Lots of things to see.

Was definitely impressed with this trail. It is a good mix of relatively easy hiking/walking and a nice woodsy environment. The trail seems much longer than it is (and took over an hour and a half to walk) but it's worth the trek.

Great run along a resevoir and a stream with a small waterfall. Beautiful foliage and wildlife this spring! check out my photos on instagram @ cohutta_be_happy

Nice easy trail. It is almost completely flat. After you park you can either go straight on the service road or go left down the trail (which we did). It goes around the lake and is very pretty. There are some break off points and it is easy to take a wrong turn (which we did). We ended up going on a longer hike than we expected to, but it was nice! Our dog loved it.

Easy trail, mostly flat. Walked in January and much of it covered in ice. Walk along edges of trail. At north end, beavers had flooded the trail but the ice wasn't solid so the other side could not be accessed from the north end.
