I was not prepared for the elevation gains at the beginning but I made it. Lower portion after you cross the other parking lot is gorgeous. I believe I will be bringing my children next time to do the lower half.

One of my regular walks. The scenery is always changing with the seasons and the weather. I never get tired of this one.

Excellent fall hike. This place should only get better to go to as the overgrown parts get less dense. Many scenic spots by the creek that runs through the area.

Trail was really over grown and not taken care of very well. The creek is beautiful tho with clear water and trout.

HikingOver grown

Nice trail - much of it on grass-covered roads. The trail isn’t extremely well marked so have the app open for route finding. There were a couple nice panoramic views, lots of good forest cover for shade during the summer, and a stream on the second half (we went clockwise). The stream was a great place to cool off midway, but the trail was much more overgrown in the areas near the stream so it’s probably best to wear long pants and apply bug spray.

Beautiful creek. The trail was very narrow (overgrown?) Didn't get far because I was wearing shorts. Long pants and boots are recommended for this trail. Also, probably should wear bright colored clothing, as it is used by hunters, too.

Beautiful hike especially along the flowing creek. Great photo ops and quite clean. Only saw two groups. Quiet and serene. Few spots of overgrowth; do t forget bug preventative.

We hiked on a Friday evening and only saw one other group. Very quiet and scenic. Half of the loop is up in the hills, and the other half is along a beautiful stream. We were there early May, and encountered a LOT of poison ivy and ticks. We brought our 2 small dogs and removed over 20 ticks from them. We would return, but with deet bug spray and long sleeves and pants.

A very nice beautiful trail partly along the creek. Went on a Saturday afternoon, February 29th. Creek running and quiet with very little traffic. Saw one horse group. But there are trails along river where there is no horses allowed.

Great trail along the creek and through the woods. Beautifuli on October. There is a section of steep rocky inclne that is not suitable for novice or casual hikers.

Pretty Isolated. Grass is a little bit High(9-2018). Some of the trail goes along a River-bank. Then it goes up and to the left...from what i seen...not much up there. If you're looking to just get-aeay...this is the place.

First to Review

Beautiful scenery, paths are wide and grassy until you get along the river. Then the narrows. Took my dogs with me and they had a blast! Can’t wait to go back with my horses!
