Great for Mountain Biking

A lot of fun. It has many jumps, bumps, and different scenery which to enjoy. Definitely challenging. However, could be marked better at the point in which the loop starts..We got lost for a bit before finding the trail again (start-blue).

Good

even though signs say for bikes to yield to hikers, that isn't how it works. self preservation demands that hikers yield to bikes. trail is way to narrow to walk next to someone or to pass another party (on foot or on wheels) without stepping to the side. beautiful scenery though.

great for biking. It'll be muddy/ wet for at least a day after rain. some trails have challenging parts but most are easy overall. Only one trail is clearly marked no bikes and if you go on it you'll know. I don't know why the hikers are complaining, it's a multi use trail for non motorized activities. bikes are allowed.
ps - a big thank you to the groups that help maintain this trail system.

No Dogs? How about no mountain bikes on the trails that are marked hiking only and how about not tearing the hiking trail markers down so you can ride. Nice during the week weekends too busy. Never did see a no dogs sign

Six Mile Run is the name of the stream that runs through the property; don't be confused and think that's the distance of the trails. I've been enjoying the trails at 6MR since 2002 and love them. Mountain bike use has increased drastically over the years, but I still enjoy them for trail running and hiking. Most cyclists say "thank you" when you jump into the poison ivy for them. :-)

Nice ride color coded paths could be marked better, few obstacles not overly difficult if riding for the first time would recommend giving yourself a few hrs and pending on skill maybe not doing it solo all together a good ride be safe!!!

NOT dog or walking friendly. This is a heavily used mountain bike trail. I will say the gentleman at the entrance warned us. We walked in 1.3 miles and walked right back out. Wasn't worth the stress to my dog and us constantly having to get out of the way.

Awesome spot if you're prepared!

The park name is misleading. I didn't dig deeper into the details of this trail beforehand because I assumed it was a 6 mile loop, a no-brainer. I wish I had. It's about 9 miles-ish and if you don't lookup how to make the blue trail a "loop" it becomes a straight line into the red trail. I had to back track quite a bit when I realized I was not going in a loop.

I didn't bring nearly enough water for my pup. But, now I know!

Super easy trail with a peaceful vibe. Will definitely go back!

It was not scenic as I expected and was not marked appropriately, so we got lost using the signs , a lot of garbage as well

Nice trail. Takes about 3 hours to complete the loop. Took the wife and the dogs. Pretty flat for the most part with a little bit of uphill in small doses. Your not going to be tho only ones out there but it doesn't feel crowded. Would definitely go there again

This has become my go to spot for local hiking but think it's well worth the trip for those who live further away. It's very peaceful and quaint despite not actually being far from busy rural areas. Feels like your further away from civilization than you actually are.
The trail itself offers varying degrees of terrain and scenery as well as varying degrees of difficulty.
Despite being a hotspot for mountain biking, it never feels crowded or highly trafficked.

Good trail! It's only borderline moderate because of the distance. The trail itself is easy. 4 because of the mountain bikers(totally get why they're there but still keep your head on a swivel) and because of the uncertain distance of the hike, 7.5 miles. Was expecting 6. nice trail! A lot of garbage though a shame.

An easy hike through rolling wooded hills and farmland. I added on the white trail for a little extra time out and clocked it at about 7mi total. The trail looks like it is used a lot for mountain biking and trail running. Go when the ground is dry or frozen otherwise you will be slogging through lots of mud.

Love it down to the bone! LBS maintains and updates the trail at its best!
