Beautiful trail. We did started off at the umbrella trail the connected to the south fork trail then went to the Robinson Brickhouse ( which was really cool). We then looped back to the Sierra loop trail and continued on to sassafras trail for a snack break and then we walked the park trails until finally connecting back to the dragonfly trail to finish with umbrella tree trail. Overall we totaled around 7.7 miles without doing the lake trails. Would definitely come back! My favorite part were the valley openings into the swampland. Spectacular !

this is a great part for kids adults and families the trails are wonderful and they are not too long they run by different Creeks bird-watching is good here lots of different animals and bugs. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes trails.

Good trail, some lake views on the front and a lot of low lands, creeks and nature on the back 2mi. Not a lot of “scenic” views, but a great hike through the woods. Would second the signage; the AllTrails map doesn’t follow any one blaze through, you have to switch paths a few times and there’s not a ton of maps around the park, watch your directions closely.

Really great scenery and very enjoyable! Definitely got lost along the trails, a lil unclear to follow, but enjoyable to explore :)

Well maintained park, easy hike. Lots of dogs out on the trail. This loop takes you between a couple of trails and through the disk golf course. Definitely keep the app up to follow or it is easy to get turned around.

Nice little hike, took us almost 2 hours with a couple stops.

Really pretty, peaceful trail. Easy to get lost, though, if you don’t pay close attention to the app.

The rock house was cool, but the lack of blazes wasn’t. Got lost a few times and even ended up on the disc golf course somehow. The placement of the markers isn’t well thought out, as there were no arrows pointing which direction to go, just a sign post that could have been for 2 different directions. The trailhead map is sun-worn, so the blaze colors are all unrecognizable. Easy trail, but super narrow and not meant for much traffic. Watch out for the box turtles hanging out on the trail!

Trail is around 4.8 miles and not 3.1 miles, at least per my recording from 9/2016. We abbreviated it slightly and it was 4.5 miles on 7/4/2019. The county has refurbished the streams and stream crossings and there are now pretty daisies and open meadows where the stream passes through which is a huge improvement. The Rockhouse is still the same but the trail getting to the cutoff has been altered slightly. All in all, an improved experience relative to before the refurb. Nice hike to occupy a couple hours. Even better in the cooler fall temperatures when the leaves are changing colors.

Got lost and ended up cutting out a whole section due to the minimal markers on the trail

Nice loop to walk, couple ponds to explore. Wide trails good for walking pups and not being in the way of others.
