The bridge across the creek is gone and thus this trail is no longer handicap accessible. The Losing Creek part of the hike is cut off from the Dogwood Trail.

A little icy and muddy today but not terrible. Nice hike overall.

Good hiking trail. Beware the horse poop in the very beginning. Beautiful trail. Peaceful. Not crowded.

I didn’t finished the long trail. I found a short trail by sign. I don’t recommend this trail. First, based on the map, the place we need to cross the creek is not access. It’s a high step and deep creek. I just keep going and cross the creek in the other intersection. Second, the trail which is for hiker and horse is really beautiful. However, there are too many ticks and mosquitoes when I enter the trail which is only used for hikers. And the trail is not obvious for track.

Was a fairly easy trail. Had a great time by the creek, kids took shoes off and played in the creek. Logs in the water made it easy to cross. Looking forward to hiking this when all the trees get leaves back.

There is no way to cross the streams so you pretty much can go about quarter mile before you have to turn around. We went to about 4 spots where it looked like there was a path on the other side but it was not possible to cross.

A beautiful area and easy to connect to the other trails nearby if you’re wanting to go longer. Usually well manicured, but the trails in the conservation area nearby are multi-use and have a lot of horse poop on them
