Some muddy spots on norton trail were hard to cross, but it was an overall very pretty hike. Some parts came close to the road or involved crossing the road, which I didn’t like.

The trail has some spectacular views, if power lines and neighboring houses are your thing. The wooded sections are beautiful, though. My dog loved crashing through the icy horse tracks to find deep mud puddles underneath. The Eastern Road lot (where this recording starts from) was blocked off when I was there, but I guess you can park there if you feel that closures don’t apply to you. It’s easy enough to pick up the trail from other parking lots in the park.

Several small stream crossings. shared trail so there are some soft spots. Great diversity: wadsworth loop goes through an area of white pine, some old growth hardwood and an old apple orchard.

I love the bridle trails. Always enjoy my time hiking them. The nearby lake is great too!

Nice trail for hiking and horseback riding. Some parts can get muddy and there are a lot of divets, so not the best for trail running.

Nice hike but you have to keep in mind it’s a Bridle Trail. We were ankle deep in mood on our last mile or so on the trail. No way to avoid it. Was good for laughs though & overall a nice hike....when it’s dried up a bit.

I love this trail, I did get a little lost, but it was very easy to get back on course. It was muddy but it’s a trail and real trail runners, get muddy! The mud was very easy to avoid, if you moved to the side of the trail.

Overall, Silver Creek is one of our favorites. There are four great trails. The bridle trails are a little more challenging than the two "regular" trails and are each 3 plus miles and they tend to be messier and less smooth (they are primarily bridle trails after all!). The other trails are very pretty and together are 3 plus miles. There's a great swimming area and fishing lake and boat rentals. Lots of good picnic areas too.

Tough trail to run on (some big hills), good for hiking if you don't mind the mud. You can access the Chippewa Trail by Eastern Road/Red Barn.

First to Review

Silver Creek has two adjoining loops, both have beautiful views and I would rate them as moderate. Great running trails except after a heavy rain. Bridle Trail Wadsworth Loop (Red) 3.25 miles Bridle Trail Norton Loop (Blue) 3.45 miles
