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!!!
