Well marked! We followed the Blue path which was not completely marked on the AllTrails map. If the water was higher you would cross a few water crossings. Very easy to follow and wasn’t that hard. There were a few views but it was a nice workout overall. Definitely worth doing at least once!

It was super muddy but a great beginner trail. Had a very beautiful river at the connecting trail!

It’s an okay trail for hiking. Not a lot to see but did saw some deer. Pretty winding trails, great for mountain biking though.

We had a good hike here, but this trail is definitely more equipped and meant for biking. Nice views of the Sac River, too. We did the red loop and did get off trail a few times. Definitely get a picture of the map at the trailhead if you’re worried about that.

If you start at the pavilion and head straight down the red trail, you will hit a trail map which helps a ton. Even with that, and what I felt was decently marked forks in the trails, I did take one small wrong turn, but it was super fun regardless. Pretty rocky for trail running, I think the red trail was the smoothest, but was still peaceful and pretty!

Rained this morning and the trail was perfect. Very little tiny spots of mud.

Trail was overgrown , hard to tell which way to go very confusing!! Lots of ticks every time I stopped for a moment they literally were crawling up my legs. I wouldn’t take a pet.
