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.
