Extremely buggy, trail was flat but was very hard to follow. Also very overgrown. I don’t know if I will be back.

Great trail. Narrow and winding. Occasionally muddy but many boardwalk bridges to accommodate dainty hikers. Just don't follow the route on AllTrails or you'll end up walking streets in neighborhoods. Enjoy!

Went looking for this trail last week but could not figure out how to get on the trail by the "Ways App" directions. Any advise would be appreciated.

this trail was cool until it became all sidewalks which was rather disappointing but the woods oarts were nice and fairly well maintained. the initial (hidden ponds) parkbsaid no dogs but the trail leaves thebpark fairly quickly and our 75 lb hound mix went relatively unoticed and ended up having a great time!

I love this trail. The shaded section from Motor Parkway to Townline is awesome. Hilly enough I wear out my dogs but not so steep or rocky that it’s dangerous (though there are portion where you could slide if you’re not paying attention). I just wish there were a place to park near the entrance on Motor or Townline.

we had a hard time finding this trail. ended up in Hidden Pond but got on trails. The recent rain had made some sections impossible. we rode our cross bikes, some areas were best for mountain biking.

Okay, this is only a wooded hike for half the trail(see photo). If you come down the west side entering at the Bow Drive dead end off of Reed and continue South down to Hidden Pond Park you're good as long as you stay in the woods. There are multiple trails so it's not hard to double back and stay in the woods. But if you make the mistake I did and end up on Liberty, Bedford and Terry you'll end up walking 4+ miles on sidewalks and streets. We ended up doing 6.81 miles according to my Fitbit because we didn't want to go back up Terry. Instead we cut over on Townline to Cedar Ridge where we picked the wooded trail back up again for the return leg. So I gave the trail a 3 Star rating based on how it appears on All Trails App. If I do it again I'll stay in the green and give it a 5 Star rating. Stay away from the road and you'll enjoy this trail. P. S. It can be muddy in spots at the beginning, so choose your footwear accordingly.

Even with the tree Marks trail very hard to follow. Some excellent downhills. Otherwise wish the direction of the trails were marked better, it doesnt help that it has so many opening and exits. Glad I visited it and got to handle the bile on some quality drops offs.
