Scenic hiking loop with nice brooks. A good amount of people. The trails were slightly confusing since they were changing the colors supposedly. Some mud due to snow melt. Overall pretty enjoyable!

Nice, pretty easy trail. Everything was clearly marked, and there’s still a lot of snow but it’s packed down well so my hiking boots were more than enough to handle it!

A little steep going up the main part but once you get on a trail it’s super easy. Lots of area to explore and alternate paths

I did a lot more than the short inner loops. Good elevation gain. The blazes are vastly improved over prior years. Beware, the red trail is rocky. Lots of fun.

I like rocky trails, because I enjoy variation of terrain. But it’s not fun when you have to watch your feet every single step of the way to avoid twisting your ankles. Also, the entire top part of the trail you can hear lots of loud noise from some highway. Not my favorite.

Great hike as always. Inner loop is definitely rockier than the outer, despite the short mileage.

Fun trails, easy to moderate. You have your choice. Beautiful walk through the forest, and over some streams. You will go over some rocks and some boulders and you’ll get to go up a little in elevation. Easier trails are in the lower part of the park. Go there early as it gets busy during the day. Big parking lot that feels up quick.

Horribly marked, we got very lost in the forest. There were snakes on the trail and we even saw a fox. There were no good views for it to have been so difficult and scary.
