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.

If you live in Charlotte are are seeking a little solitude that is convenient, this is a quick escape especially if you go during the week. Park gets really crowded at times but overall a great place for a quick and easy hike through the woods. I go here alone but hiking is easy for kids as well.

Very easy which is why I can’t bring myself to call what we did hiking. Not much to see along the way. Very poorly marked. Great for beginners, small kids but don’t expect to be wowed.
