Could use better marking in places. Nice variety of terrain.

Fun hike; varied terrain. Only drawback was very loud highway noise from 101.

Wasn't as hilly as I was expecting. Poorly marked, but using All Trails kept us on the right path.

Great trail. Sadly right on the freeway which diluted the serenity extremely.

Cool little hour+ hike. I was a fool for forgetting bug spray. Eaten alive, but great for getting the body moving. Wear long sleeves and something around the neck and you’ll have a great time!

Hiked the red loop today and it turned out to be 6.25 miles - partly because we got lost a couple of times. As others have said, the markings can be very hard to follow in certain spots. That, coupled with the bugs, made this a 3 star hike. We definitely appreciated the tree cover on a fairly warm, muggy day.

Nice loop with a little elevation to get the heart rate up. Mostly a biking trail but good for a 4 mile loop.

Great overall hike. Use bug spray because there were a lot of them, which was the only downside. Parking was awesome!

Good trail, the trails aren’t marked that great. There are lots of side trails marked red that just don’t seem right. And then there are some section where you end up off trail and don’t even realize it. Just keep your eyes peeled and follow All Trails map. They do all seem to end up getting back to main red trail anyway.

Entrance is on Newfields rd. Not the coordinates provided here. Lovely trail. Common for mountain biking so just be cautious around tight corners. Can get muddy and wet if enough bikes go through, but overall gorgeous and easy trail to take dogs. Clean and not too populated.

Nice trails lots of side trails off of main trail. Nice rolling hills. Def recommend having all trails or gps to track yourself very easy to take a wrong trail.

This was a great walk through the woods very pretty with bridges everywhere. But...3 stars because the trail markings are the worst I’ve seen. We got lost more then once and pretty much doubled the mileage (great for the exercise, but set some panic buttons). Definitely use your AllTrails app because we were able get ourselves on track once we realized we were on the wrong path. Lots of bikes, not many foot people.

there were times when the trail was barely marked and gave me a lot of anxiety.

Trail Is in great shape considering it’s spring. Some of the causeways are leaning or slightly under water but passable.

It’s not marked well and 101 is loud. However it was an unexpected find right outside Exeter.

People need to leash their dogs. Nothing worse then walking up on a strange dog and now one around.

Great hike. Lost the trail markers a few times, but easy to find our way back using the gps map on the app.
