Winter walk in the woods. Lightly traveled, hard to find trail in spots. Might be better in spring/summer/fall.

Will never go back. The trail is in a ravine that is surrounded by houses. Numerous trees across the trails, along with the bridge which is washed out. Some garbage and drainage pipes along trail. Now I understand why it is lightly trafficked.

Fun trail right in Country Knolls neighborhood. Steep at times so would not recommend for kids under 5 and definitely not stroller friendly. The trail has many intertwining trails and hard to navigate. We ended up coming out in the neighborhood and walked back on the roads which was fine. I would also rate as moderate as another reviewer mentioned.

First to Review

This trail is located in the country knolls neighborhood, that said, you wouldn’t know you were in a neighborhood 90% of the time. It’s essentially a figure 8 trail with multiple crossover trails. The map above is the perimeter of the trial, and the little haunts to the outside of the trail show where the multiple entrances are to the trail system. There are multiple small streams that go through the area with either a small bridge or planks to cross over. You are always going up or down a knoll with hardly a flat stretch on the trail. Depending on what part of the trail you are on it can be buggy during the summer, especially down by the main creeks. Despite only 300’ of elevation gain, I would rate this as moderate. It’s a great hike for families to bring kids on but would be very tiring to carry a child in a carrier.
