Very enjoyable pretty forest walk. Not many bikes at all, ( one family passed us, easy for kids to walk.
Playground at trailhead not busy at all. Nobody else there on Saturday afternoon.
Pretty lake, only a couple of fishermen.
The road is a little loud as you get 3/4 way around.
But very enjoyable and very close to other park amenities- dog park, bigger play grounds, Cheddars restaurant.

One of the best trails in the area; technical, with varied terrain, and 99% singletrack. Very easy to follow signs as long as you travel in the MTB direction. About 8 miles if you run/ride/hike all 5 loops. Intermediate to advanced MTB; beginners proceed with caution.

This trail sucked if you like nature. It's near a road and can hear card passing by. There's no waterfall like described on the bio.

Update: If you don't see the trail markers, you're going the wrong way. Start at the green + on the map - not the red -.

They must not expect someone to walk the trail in the opposite direction, which is what I guess I did last time.

Glad to see it's not just me who finds this trail to be poorly marked. Difficult to navigate without markers.
