Nice trails, cris crossed with snow mobile trails, but the trails are blazed. If you check out the Bow web site they have a good trail map you can use in conjunction with AllTrails - but I had no problem hiking. Good forest setting, with brooks, 2 great views. The trails are rocky and “rooty” in areas so not as easy for mountain biking, but you can get a good 3-5 mile hike in with some elevation, but nothing major

Really difficult map and trail patterns. Better for snowmobiling than hiking. Need to make better trail markers.

it was pretty, but as soon as you get to the great hill summit, it's sad to see all the trees be chopped down. However, still beautiful! caught a few frogs and a snake!

My kids loved this hike! The water is clear and beautiful and you can hike several different trails that connect to this trail if you don't have the time for the full hike. We saw a couple families hiking with their children and their dogs. The trails are clean and we saw 3 snakes and a porcupine climb a tree.
