Left from the trailhead at the Visitors Center and went clockwiser. Had a heck of a time picking up the trail when we hit the Equestrian Center. Wandered around the parking lot a few times, then finally located it. Very nice hike. Was surprised that we had a nice breeze even at the lower parts of the trail. Would like to see it when it is wet.

The distance was a little off I showed 3.1 miles. It was a good hike i would definitely mark it as moderate. Unfortunately all the creek beds were dry.

Enjoyed a gorgeous day on this trail. The trailhead is just behind the equestrian center and has two parking places adjacently located. The trail is pretty narrow - tough to walk and talk. There are a few confusing areas to locate where the trail picks back up around camping and other equestrian areas. No issues with insects today. Near the end, there were some areas that were pretty overgrown. Enjoyed the moderate elevation climbs but mostly an easy going trail.

I love Greensfelder. My great-great grandfather Charles Evans once owned several hundred acres that is now part of Greensfelder. It's an excellent place to camp and to hunt for rocks in the creek.

Nice Park. Trails are generally well maintained. No blazes, but markers located at intersecting trails. Quite a few nice trails in the park to choose from.

Eagle Valley Trail, approx 3.5mi. Delightful changes in terrain, elevation, & plants.

Trailhead: When driving from i44, do NOT turn right onto a one-way road as soon as you see a "Welcome to Greensfelder" sign. Just stay on the two-lane & you'll get to the visitor's center & trailhead much faster!

Trail Traffic: Unlike the app's description ("heavily trafficked"), we only saw a handful of other people on a Saturday in July :)

Caution: Look carefully when the Eagle Valley (blue) & Deer Run (yellow) trails unite. We followed a dry downhill tributary and had to double back.

Special treat: wild raspberries! Yum!

Did the Joseph Declue Trail today - nice fairly easy hike - had some hilly areas but not a lot - watch for horses on the trail and what they leave behind. Also had lots of bike riders on this trail. Signage could be improved especially where trails overlap. I would do this trail again
