Very steep! felt like a climbed a little mountain. there was an area where several trees had fallen and it made it hard to cross, but it’s possible.

The trail is not long but it does have a nice incline for the area. Very muddy in spots to the point where I slid down a muddy incline in one place & got my shoe stuck in another area. Lots of wildflowers today. In on spot not quite at the half-way point when starting off counter-clockwise, there was a series of trees down that completely blocked the trails. I didn’t count but it seemed like 2-3 medium-sized trees that came down together in one section. We pushed through & it was relatively clear after that.

Ventured out with light rains and drizzle this morning, which made for a beautiful trail experience. The marked trail on AllTrails incorrectly leads you onto private property, so take note if you head left at the trail head. We also encountered a newly downed tree and will contact the conservation department about it as it blocked a good portion of the trail (which was about 3/4 of the way through for us, but would likely be closer to the beginning for folks who start by veering right at the trailhead). It was possible to navigate around/over parts of the downed tree, and we had our two dogs with us. There are some steep inclines and declines, one incline in particular was very challenging but doable with good hiking boots and staying low during the ascent. Short trail but absolutely enjoyable! Felt like we were in a rainforest!

We did this trail via the connector at Truman Park. I loved the view of the river and it was a great reward! The trail was pretty muddy in some places but most had a go-around. We really enjoyed it.

Went today. Muddy but it also rained yesterday. There is a steep incline that was a pleasant surprise. The end of the trail flattened out by the river. Wasn't able to connect the loop because it was over grown so we went back and retraced the route to do the other side. Nice get away. Saw people fishing, walking dogs on leashes and kids walking. Nice 3.5 mile walk only because we looped back. I think it is usually a 2.5.

I’ve attempted this area twice as it’s close to my property however I do not recommend it unless you and your dogs are prepared to get muddy. On top of the mud, there was a ton of trash and empty bottles lying around. Not at the top of my list.

Many reviews talk of accidentally entering private land. See my photo for a blue highlighted route that stays safely within public use lands!

The trail leads to private property and doesn’t seem like there was a way to get around it. There was also a huge tree down that I had to climb Under and then over

Would be much better in winter, with less foliage and dry ground.
