Peaceful walk in the woods. We parked at the Garnsey Road lot, and hiked on the south side. The trails are very well marked and well maintained. The Orange trail has lots of ups and downs. We hiked the Orange trail to the overlook and returned by way of the Blue.

Nice trail. My 3 year old son was able to navigate the inclines and descents of the orange trail.(w/ a lil help) So peaceful walking through the woods.

I park at Garnsey rd, head south. Have done the south portion 3 or 4 times in fall and winter, never the same route. Once went all the way to Moseley rd, past the Woodcliff hotel where there is a nice overlook / photo spot / helicopter pad (ok probably not but it looks like one). Good elevation change, will get the heart rate up if you keep up a good pace. Taking/harvesting a couple walking poles/sticks helps get the arms and back into the workout on the hills and helps with the occasional slippery spot. Expect to spot the occasional deer, and at least a few friendly fellow hikers. Yes you can hear I-490 from pretty much the entire trail but that also serves to establish your bearing if you need it. Not sure how to get out? just walk toward the road noise, or downhill (same result) and then go right and you'll end up back at the Garnsey rd trailhead. This is about the only trail I've found in the area with a good amount of up and down (a few in Powder Mill Park have steep hills but are smaller and shorter). All in all a nice 1 to 2 hour hike.

Decent hike. Could hear cars from the highway. Pretty difficult to find parking. We eventually parked at the crescent trail entrance on Garnsey Rd. Orange trail was nice and led to the overlook of Bushnell Basin.

If u follow the orange trail, not a loop...plan on a long out n back. Marked very clearly for first few miles, then not so much. A good workout, plenty of steep ups n downs. Overall a great hike.

Sucked. Forgot bug spray and got eaten alive. Gave two stars because the trails were nice, steep at times, but well marked. There wasn't a map on location so I wandered pretty aimlessly. Probably wouldn't go back, not any nice sights.

Nice trail but the traffic noise from I90 ruins it a little bit.
