Great views of different valleys! Unless you want to hike up a huge hill with many stairs I'd start the trail at the trail sign near the left of the parking lot when you pull in. Also about .1 miles from the trail head at this location the Buckeye Trails veers to the left and has some cool views.

Nice muddy trail with ways to add extra miles with the Buckeye trail, if desired.

Super muddy but to be expected this time of year. Apparently there is a private outdoor shooting range nearby which can be a bit unnerving while hiking alone in the woods.

Fun! Good elevation change. Cool stream (Yellow?). Sucks that you have to cross a road but that’s virtually every trail in the valley. Lots of stairs. It was rad in the rain in March. Can’t wait to take my dog in the summer.

Really nice trail for a fall hike. One big hill but otherwise pretty easy.

Beautiful and peaceful wooded trail of packed dirt. The day I hiked, it was dry, but I can imagine this trail would be pretty muddy and challenging if wet. Some areas with stairs, slopes and inclines, so moderately strenuous.

I like this trail, it’s short , but a little challenging .You start off with a steep decline on stairs, but what goes down must come up! There are no stairs going back up , it is straight up hill!

Always one of the nicest, moderately challenging trails in the area. Make sure to make a pit stop at the river!

Great trail, you can part of the buckeye trail in. The stairs are a bit brutal after a longer run, but a good challenge!

Trail has been shortened to 1.8 m, making it a delightful afternoon stroll at my pace. All in cool woods, with the steps down one side in immaculate condition.

Well marked trail with a lot of variety as far as elevation and scenery. Stopped for a while down by the creek and soaked up some sunshine before heading back up. Kids were glad it was short
