This is my new favorite trail in the area. The trails are wide at some points and narrower at others but never where you have to bushwhack through it. I thought this was a great option when you needed to social distance too. However I saw only two other people while I was out. I went a weekday afternoon and the place was almost all mine! Little elevation changes, some parts were more uneven than others I would mark this an easy trail not moderate. It wasn’t too hot yet but I could see the area getting buggy in the summer. Some of the trail markings were confusing but pair the markings with this app and you have no chance at getting lost. Very clean trails with trash only around the parking area. Great place to walk your dog, mine sure did enjoy it.

Some markings a bit confusing due to down trees and mud but generally nice trails

Terribly marked trail, very easy to get lost. Multiple people we saw were asking for directions and were just as confused as we were. I don't understand why this was rated moderate. There are barely any inclines and the trail is pretty clear.

Pleasant trial. Smell of doggy dung on occasion. Know how to read trail marking and it’s super simple and clear to follow. Take your trash home, ya degens.

Easy to follow the main paths. Being winter not much to see but a good mix of distance and available loops. Farther in had to rely on app to keep course

Extremely easy to get lost (see recorded trail). It happened twice and I go hiking all the time. Ended up having to climb over a broken fence on someone’s property to get back on the trail. Not gonna come back to this one.

This trail is really great, not too many people (on a Saturday morning) and feels really forested and quiet the farther back you get. All the twists and side trails were a bit confusing for a first time visit but I think i’ll get the hang of it next time. Took a gnarly fall halfway thru, if you’re running watch out for loose rocks and sticks...
