Nice park, clean and scenic. I wouldn’t say it’s easy biking it but if your not out of shape middle aged woman like me you will probably have no problem.

Nice trail through the woods.

Took the kids (6,7,&8). Easy enough for them. They’re we’re able to do 5 miles before tuckering out so the elevation wasn’t too much. Mostly a flat walk through the woods. Little change in scenery made it a bit on the boring side. The trails were well maintained and marked. A nice little hike close to home.

Very good trails with many different routes to choose from with different difficulty levels. Trails clearly marked, and amazing view/scenery. Depending at what time you arrive parking may be difficult being that the lot is pretty small.

Did this trail this past summer with two friends. Well kept trail, pretty views, and it was perfect for a quick trip just for something to do. Not a hard trail at all, I would definitely say it is kid and pet friendly. Definitely would go back to hike again, but also would go back to mountain bike it.

Nice trail! Had nice greenery and some lakes/streams

Pleasant trail through the woods. Lots of slight inclines to make it a slightly moderate. (Compared to how other trails are rated on this app). Trail was very neat and clean, easy to follow.

We did this hike and our 3 year old hiked it too. We took a shortcut back to parking. It’s really pretty, wasn’t too muddy, lovely views of lakes, woods and creeks. Will come back.

Great trail just off the beaten path. Trails are well maintained and marked. Some elevation changes. Enjoyed the trail with many mature hardwood trees and water views...will be back to visit. If you time your hike right you can stop for a beer at Screamin’ Hill Brewery less than a half mile from the trail head.

Rode for the first time today. Great climbs, fairly technical due to many large roots crossing trails. Leaves everywhere that fill in some large holes, could be a hazard at speed. Lots of dirty fun. Will definitely be back.

Great trail. Beautiful and wooded with a nice creek. Some bikers, but they were very polite and didn't run into you. All Trails said hike is 4 miles, but we logged it as 4.5. Not a huge deal, just an fyi.

Slightly overgrown but for the most part, very well kept. I have pretty bad asthma and there are some steep hills but nothing too strenuous. I found it fairly easy and enjoyed the view and bridges.

Really beautiful trail here in November. Lots of beautiful foliage and nicely marked trails. Very easy to follow. Dog friendly and almost entirely empty when we were there. Also got to see a horse out there, really awesome! (But watch out for some horse leftovers)

Multiple smaller trails linked to make 4 miles. Elevations - great workout.

3 days of rain and wind has made this a leaf covered trail and traveled often enough that it’s easy to follow with wood post markers regularly keeping you on track. Conditions are great and it’s a fun meandering path for 4.4 miles with just enough up and downs to make you feel you got a work out without feeling exhausted.

I would highly recommend this series of trails. not just an in and out kind of loop trail lots of branches to take to come back and see different things on the way in and out. found a tree with 4 huge trunks off the main on it was amazing. interesting find!

On the higher side of moderate, but awesome trees and well groomed trails. Quite a few bikes but they are respectful.

my first time at this place and i followed the whole tale the right all the time path. my galaxy watch clicked off 4.4 miles. i consider myself a beginner so with that in mind it was a fairly easy hike. ups and downs, watch out for roots and bikers. but a good hike over all. would recommend.
