I did all the trails to see what my 10-year-old might be willing to do. She could do any of them, but I plan to try the long loop with her first - the most variety and water.

I did the Hickory Trail long loop and while there are definitely more challenging multi-terrain and/or remote local trails, I found it a very nice pre-work workout. I went very early and I did not see anyone else, there were plenty of deer and their babies, and enough inclines to get a decent cardio workout. Definitely better than a trip on the treadmill!

Not dog friendly

I walked all 3 (technically 4) trails here one afternoon. A few things to consider: all pathways are paved entirely, it is very close to 270 so there is a lot of road noise, and it is NOT dog friendly.

It does have some scenic views, however, and I did see wildlife along the trail. There are several streams you will pass by and over.

If you're looking for a place to become immersed in nature, it is a little hard to do with all of the road noise from the nearby highways, but if you're looking for a scenic walk this is not a bad stop.

Really beautiful place. Came here our crazy first day of spring 2017 for trail running. All the trailheads conveniently start off different sections of the parking lot. Three different paved trails with varied lengths/elevation to choose from - Broken Ridge, Hickory Ridge (short/long loop), and Tanglevine. Highly recommend doing all of them if you are able, but definitely Hickory Ridge long loop. Very wooded and peaceful, might see a few deer trotting around. Sunset was a crazy beautiful time to go with the golden color on all the trees.

It's decent for a walk but for "hiking" there's much better trails around!

The trail is paved and you can hear the highway.

all paved, but plenty of incline/decline. quite a workout with a stroller.

This is a great little paved trail. It is well maintained and a pleasant trail. Not overly difficult but does have some challenging points. Be prepared to lap them a few times if your a regular hiker used to more wild paths.

great place to walk in the woods with the kids, nice that there are different lengths of loop trails

if you get here early enough.... you can have one heck of a workout running up 70° hills. Be sure to have shoes with good tread if you are planning to run the 3 mini trails... inclines and declines are BEAST!!!

I'm not that fond of paved trails, but this one has some steep areas so it's a nice workout. The forest is beautiful. The visitor's center is very nice. Much more than you would expect.

We really liked this trail. The visitor center is beautiful and it is a very quiet trail, perfect for a walk and a good conversation. Really close to the metro area too.

This is a great place for quick excerise. Path is paved. Some good inclines but it isnt a place you'd go for a nature "hike" as I like them, its more of a walk/excerise trail. It is not wild enough to be considered a hike as I prefer but still beautiful.
Three paved trails. All fairly short. It has a great visitor center. This is a park I love bringing my 5 year old.

I absolutely love this trail because it is paved and completely shaded! It's a great place to go to take a break from the sun and get a good walk in. It is very steep in many areas, it gets your heart rate up without a doubt. There are three separate trails. All three are relatively short. There is a nice nature center to look at too. Ladies, you can feel very safe here. Nice wooded trails without the worry if anything! Enjoy!

This trail is very beautiful. I felt like I was back in the Smokey Mountains. It has some steep spots but is all paved. There are benches as well as look out spots throughout the trail. You will see a lot of deer and wildlife up close and they are not scared easily.
