Awesome trails. Be aware of the BEARS, they have been walking around the trails. They are harmless but just be vigilant and don’t threat them.

A nice hike. On a Saturday afternoon maybe 30 or so on the trail but expected. Took a couple of detours along the way.

Yellow trail, well-marked. Lots of parking. On a corona-virus memorial weekend it wasn’t too crowded but mostly mountain bike traffic on the trail. Had to watch dog and pay attention behind for whole walk. Not muddy, or particularly buggy. Very green unvaried landscape, some elevations in a quiet forest walk.

Very nice trail and both easy but also with some challenges. Many options. Not much mud. Nice for mountain bike too. Very peaceful

Cute easy trail. Definitely seems more like a biking trail than a hiking trail. Went on a Friday during the day and didn’t see anyone else on the trail, however. Trail markers are not very good and I had to backtrack twice. Pay attention to the map carefully.

Such a fun trail! You will have some challenging climbs that will feel like you can’t go any more, rewarded by down runs that will make you cheer and want to climb the next one all over again. There are many ways to do this trail, but if you stick to the outside yellow trail it’ll be a breeze to follow it. Make sure you have good gears and that your shocks and tires can take on some rocky parts. My bike was certainly challenged today. Can’t wait to take on this park again many times in the future.

A bit crowded. Too many mountain bikers.

This was pretty nice and long. A few rises and dips. Good if you need to get out and stay away from crowds. All you need is an ability to watch for bikes on trail. All in all, it was a great walk.

Overall, a well marked route with trying types of terrain. Pleasant, mostly secluded, although noisy near the lake, and one must keep an eye out for aggressive mountain bikers. Trails mostly in good condition, with a few muddy spots.

The 1st half was nice, while yellow is joined with blue then red. It is like a wide tow path. Then when yellow is not merged it is a narrow path. There is a section where the continuation of yellow could not be found. we took an unmarked path that on map shows it merges back into yellow. At place it merged back into yellow we could see the yellow section was blocked off behind the merge with downed trees and overgrown. At least we got back onto yellow. There was about 15 sections where the narrow section of trail was completely muddy water. the surrounds are dense vegetation, but we weren't going to backtrack being past halfway through. We managed it with care with only getting muddy not wet. Not the best hike, but yellow trail missing section was biggest problem.

The trail itself is a nice hiking trail. I love forest bathing and it’s awesome we have this beauty here to enjoy. However, we hiked on a Saturday. There were lots of mountain bikers and I had my dog with me on a leash. I was constantly pulling over to the side of the trail and listening for bikers. Not relaxing at all.

Be sure to wear your trail shoes as this is rocky most of the way. I’m on a business trip and was able to make do only having my road shoes, but might have some sore feet in the morning. Path is shaded throughout, which was welcome on this 90 degree day! Lots of people around the lake but only saw one other person on the trail - a mountain biker.

Trail is in great condition. Elevation is very gradual. Shared the trail with probably 10 mountain bikers over 2.5hrs but trail is wide in a lot of places so easy to step aside. I did see bear tracks which had to be recent with all the rain but no bears. Sunny, breezy...perfect day.

I'm too fat to rate this awesome trail. Keep spinning, you'll get to your car. single track, switch back downhills, easy to moderate but I had to walk some climbs bc of Jersey Mike's before I started.

Good trail for exercise, not much to see here. Yellow Trail follows Patriots path for a short distance.
