This is a great place with something for everyone. You can get lost sometimes as the markings aren't abundant, but it certainly gives an adventure!

Nice trail. A few muddy areas. Some cool bridges that were fun. Saw a box turtle along the trail. Went on a Sunday morning and not too crowded.

We had a great time on this trail (3 little kids). There are a few super muddy areas and the trails can be confusing around the creek, but there’s a lot to discover if you’re willing to wander and it was only lightly trafficked on a Sunday.

Very diverse trail, there are slight inclines and flat surfaces. If you are a PoGo player stuck to the Fit Trail for optimum time. Would have been just as well for bikes but there are some narrow trails with very little traffic.

wasn't what I expected and exacerbated my injured back... my fault. not sure if I will return... the few pedals I took were more for hiking.

Well marked easy trail. Some cool scenery.....one boardwalk walkway area felt “prehistoric”. Saw some deer n 2 snakes which too was cool. Not crowded; plenty of parking.

I would recommend this trail for anyone who likes different sceneries while walking. This walk gives a good workout and I can definitely feel my muscles in my legs working during this. There are several stairs and steep inclines but overall nothing difficult to navigate. Definitely appreciate the clarity of the trails, making it basically impossible to get disoriented.

It's a nice length hike, but nothing spectacular. Mostly flat, no views or interesting landmarks. I'd rank it as average through and through, but I wouldn't mind doing it again, especially in other seasons. The best part in my opinion is the River's Edge trail towards the end of the hike.

Nice hike. Nothing too difficult with the exception of a few steep steps. Thick tall weeds towards the end by the river. Not crowded and very clean. Update: Still a nice hike but prep for Chiggers. A few days later the bites showed up and we’ve been itching ever since.

My dog and I had a good hike. I decided to take the Cedar Loop, but somehow came off the trail. There are a few places that split that weren't well marked. We came to a clearing (Gully Rd) and found our way back. Great hike but could have clearer markings for the splits.
