HikingGreat!

Beautiful park. This trail is fantastic. You get riverside, waterfalls and amazing rock formations. True, you do have to jump off path for bikers to pass, but that is no problem for me.

There's not much to see. If you're going for exercise, then it's great. Not wide enough for hikers and bikers together. Once was good enough for me. I wouldn't want to do it again.

Like others have said this is great for mountain bikers but not so great for backpackers or hikers if you're just looking for exercise I would highly recommend it, it's not that pretty and it's not comfortable but it is definitely a workout and something to do nearby Springfield. If you're a mountain biker you're going to love this place.

Very clean and kept up area. I checked it out because I saw that it was for hiking too. The trails are marked hiking and bike...share the trail. The trails are so tiny they are hard to share. Looks exciting if you are a mountain biker but I wouldn't go back as a hiker.

Great trail for a Saturday morning, not many encounters with bikers, or hikers. I brought 2.5l of water, and have about .5 l left.

Hiking

Great mountain biking trails but we hiked it with our 4 and 6 yo and we had a blast. We had a lot of rain so there were a few spots where waterproof hiking boots were essential but on drier days, I think sneakers with good ankle support would do, as there are quite a few rocky areas. We found a few great picnic areas and despite the park being pretty busy, felt fairly secluded out there. The views were absolutely beautiful on both hilltop and open groves on the service road. My only complaint is the map is pretty busy and takes a bit to get oriented. My best advice is follow the number system on the intersections. We can’t wait to go back...maybe with our bikes next time!

Made my first visit today and have an overall good impression of the place. I went for hiking and took my dog on-leash. It is beautiful land with a river, streams, steep ravines, rock outcroppings, old pasture fields, disc golf course...just a lot of variety to offer. And it is all very well maintained! I went after a lot of rain so there weren't tons of mountain bikers, but everybody I met along the way was polite and made room for others coming by on the typically narrow trails. My main gripe was actually with this AllTrails map that does not properly follow the trail it lists (or sometimes any trail at all) so I ended up doing a weird hybrid backtracking trip. If you go and intend to do the west loop, you will have to just follow the trail signs, which are generally fairly well marked. One tip would be to go clockwise if you are starting out in the morning since there are long open field stretches toward that side which get hot by the afternoon after you are already worn out.

Great trail with many beautiful views. Rivers + streams + bridges and trees blooming in the spring. We did all 8 miles and I would consider it moderate. Many mountain bikers but hikers were also there too.

Oh so much fun. Like others have already said, whoever recorded this trail originally didn't get the trails right. This is not just the West Loop of the trail, it also includes the South Loop. This is definitely a MODERATE trail. Lots of muddy spots and loose gravel. Lots of mountain bikers that you always have to be aware of if you're hiking on foot. I completed the South Loop and 90% of the West Loop following this path. I highly suggest the Bluffline Trail at the one end of the West Loop. Great views.

This is a great local place to hike! It is primarily a mountain biking trail, but hiking is encouraged. The map here on All Trails does NOT follow the West Loop as marked on the trail, but the true West Loop is a good workout with nice views. In a future trip I will record the West Loop Proper for others to follow.

this trail was amazing!! there were a lot of rocks but for being in the middle of nowhere it is awesome! The people are very nice and the map is very detailed. I only got lost once because I was distracted from the river. but overall if you are looking into mountain biking this one is great! (also the first trail on the right connected to the service road it's not as hard as it looks)

Hiking

The Google Map provided by AllTrails tells you to turn one road too early to reach the trailhead, which caused some confusion. It also suggests the West Loop is 8.2 miles, though my Apple Watch clocked me in at 5.9 miles, even with a little backtracking. Not sure if I missed part of the trail, but I followed the signs! The trail was well-groomed and marked. It was a nice place to walk for a few hours on a sunny day.

Varied terrain that made this an interesting hike. Watch out for loose rocks and roots on the trail. Tons of mountain bikes out here. Lots of features for bikes that some might find fun. To me they looked like a good place to break your neck.
