This was a beautiful hike...very peaceful! Crossing the stream was fun on the one trail, and the view from the other trail was incredible!

Nice trail. Very peaceful and not too hard. Good scenery and not too long.

Very nice trail: We went north from parking lot, on Orange Trail to overlook. That was easy. Coming back, we switched to Green Trail. It was different, a nice change, until we hit the creek. Water was running fast and there was no bridge. We made it across but it was a challenge. And there were two others times we had to cross. So, a good hike but be warned.

Probably a very good hike, but the creek section was extremely muddy and the kids threw a tantrum so we had to call it quits. Wish we could have seen the longer side of the loop which probably had the views. The creek side was pretty, but muddy. It had rained two days earlier.

Great trail for beginners or groups with small kids. Elevation gains are mostly gradual, there is a nice overlook on the longer loop. Be careful where you park, there is a crazy homeowner directly next to the trailhead, with no signs that indicate private property. Other than that guy, it was a nice trail.

Fun trail. I did the loop (out trail 1, back trail 2 over the stream). the lookout is beautiful and trail overall is easy. Trail 1 is clear and wide. Only issue is Trail 2 is a little difficult to follow on the way back. Just keep looking for the markers when the trail seems to disappear. At the end the trail does just end and you have to trek back through the woods with no trail (you can see the road up ahead when this happens, you won't get lost) or cross about 50ft through the woods to a private road/driveway that leads directly back to the main road for parking. Would bring friends to do again!

A nice walk. Rocky in some parts. Loved the little observation platform at the end. Great view. Still buggy at the end of August. What a year for bugs!

Cute trails, both South and North. North lookout onto the Warwick area was nice, especially when you know the area a little bit and can recognize farms, buildings, etc. Trails were a little muddy, because it is between small ridges and close to a stream.

Not sure if I was on trail 1 or trail 2. I took the orange trail out to the lookout and took the green trail back. This gave nice variety to the hike.
