Walking

This is definitely an easy hike. No snow or mud now. It’s close by. Wonderful creek that runs through. You can see people’s houses on either side of the trail but I felt like it was a nice place for a short easy hike and a picnic. Good parking. A small playground and picnic table too. Keep in mind that it’s not secluded. But it’s still nice for being so close to people’s backyards

Hiking

This out and back should probably be rated at an easy level, there are only a few steep areas and the incline is gradual. If you are looking for a private secluded hike this is NOT it. The first 2 or so miles run parallel to the backyards of nearby houses. Currently the trail is good with little mud. My watch clocked the hike 7 miles with 1000ft climb.

Trail was in great condition. Only a few feet of mud here and there. Tiny bit of snow, but easy to avoid

Aside from the length, this is an easy trail. Had some snowy ice to walk over so something better than running/walking shoes would be best.

Ok for a semi-suburban walk. Pretty hemmed in by houses on each side. Lots of bikes and runners.

Beautiful day and gorgeous scenery. Walked a mile up and a mile back, almost all along the creek. Highly recommended.

Trail was very easy to follow. There is a lot of shade if you go early like we did, so bring layers. Beautiful fall colors on the trees right now!

Running

I am absolutely baffled by some of the reviews here made by “pros”! Yes, sometimes the trail spilts of into peoples backyards but that’s your own fault for wandering off the trail. Yes, the trail isn’t directly beside the creek 100% of the time, but if it was I’m sure you would instead complain about it being too muddy and flooding too often. This trail is NOT crowded and you will not get run over by bikes. Overall this trail is beautiful, shady, and fun. Try to enjoy it and not get angry whenever it gets too far away from the creek than is to your liking :)

Slightly technical for running with very less shade (7 am in mid July). But enjoyable for run/hike. Less crowded.

Qatar path great trail run. Nice combination of up and down, some areas are rocky but most of it is smooth running service. Encountered a bear on the way back though and had to go the long way around!

Hiking

Started at park off of Killington dr. Several little trails but stayed along creek most of time. Creek had aspens growing around-offered nice shade and cool air. Crossed two bridges made of boards. End of wild flower season for wild roses . Nice gradual climb up to private road then gradual hike back. Went at 9 am to avoid the summer heat, only saw one other person whole time. Definitely going on this trail again!
