no trail markers. What a shame as this could be so much better. Tree debris because of a large, recent storm. 3 stars is generous.

Very cool trail system. Hard to believe you can pack so many single tracks in such a small place. While it id easy to get lost, the single tracks are really fun. Particularly suited for mnt biking.

Someone has dedicated a lot of time an effort making this system!

Great set of trails, love climbing the big boulders, nice views of the lake, there’s easy trails and also challenging hills. A lot of forks in the road but the alltrails app keeps you from getting lost so you’re free to veer from the path.

Definitely a confusing place if you didn't have this app! I would have been so lost with 4 kids

Nice hike and definitely easy, not moderate. Trails are confusing, though, so it's best to follow along on your phone so you can tell if you've veered off

I didn't like this trail very much because it was easy to get lost in since the trails were not clearly marked. My husband, on the other hand, did enjoy this trail. He liked the woodsy feel of it and enjoyed some of the challenges that come with it. We saw some people mountain biking there. I'd probably enjoy biking there more than hiking.

Also, it was difficult to find at first as we didn't realize it was behind the library.

Nice wooded trails and interesting landmarks. We only saw one other couple out on the trails today, so fairly secluded for this area.

Beautiful woods; lots of Rock formations to climb (unfortunately there is a lot of broken glass!); and a large trail system. Due to the sheer volume of trails, it's very easy to get lost, so make sure your phone is totally charged!

Beautiful little trail. Park behind the library. This trail features multiple terrains and views, including a waterfall/dam, trail along the pond, trails in tall grass/fields, and trail along pine trees in the shade. Many giant rocks to climb. Many smaller paths off the main one. Not well marked but recording your path helps. Recommend!

Make sure when you pull in you go to the Public Library. You will find the entrance at the back of parking lot.
