Nice little loop with falls - if you walk up creek to falls from parking lot you will have to go all the way back to get onto trail - 3 inclines counting stairs at the beginning - swampy area in the middle of the top part if you take the second incline - small parking lot off road - go after rain if you want to see falls - a little buggy

True story, my friend Timothy Rudl made this trail as his Boy Scout project and they named it after him. Proud friend moment when I found out. Nice little family friendly hike.

This one trail is a fraction of the trail system in the immediate area. Perfect for trail jogging from what i found.

The falls are very pretty. Not too muddy. Lot of bugs. Be careful not to step on the frogs in the mud spots of the trail.

Great for kids and novice hikers. The trails are maintained, well marked and decent spots for parking at various trail heads along the road.

Very dog friendly loop but very steep in some areas. highly recommend listening to leash rules in this area for dog safety. Very well maintained trails, easy to wander but not get lost in this area but again steep in some areas so I recommend proper footwear and poles depending on the season.

Real nice trail surrounded by private property. Interesting creek with rock features. Follow the steps up from parking area and start the loop to the left. Very muddy during rain or time of thaw. Hunting is allowed so be smart.

Great place with so much more trails to explore than the map suggests.

First time on trail with my daughter. Took a compass just in case, and it proved handy. (The trails were covered in leaves and we kinda got a little turned around at one point; but it wasn't a huge set back.) Will definitely visit again in another season.

Short walk and easy for the kids and dogs. Tick repellant recommended, and watch out for yellow jackets as there were a few casualties. Otherwise nice relatively easy hike if you don’t mind the mud. Little waterfall made the kids happy.

Super pretty area with gorgeous, gnarly old trees, pond, ducks, bursting milkweed, quirky little foot bridges. Will return when I have more time to explore!
