I did the blue loop. For runners: Beautiful and well-marked trail. Lots of roots and a significant- though not impassable- amount of mud, so watch your step and be prepared to get a little muddy. For everyone else: Super lush woods, great views, and lots of wildlife to check out.

Trails are maintained well for mostly smooth sailing. A few of the small offshoot loops have a lot of bare roots jutting out so it makes for dicey running. Just use those patches for a heart rate recovery

Oooops! Forgot to mention I seem to recall the people there said there were nesting eagles in the area. (At 73, I have a great memory - just short - so double check me on this). Activity date is approximate as it was on prior comment.
