a little icey right now, bring your spikes if you have them. Other than that the trail is in good shape and always a beautiful hike. While this trail is not very long, it has a nice amount of uphill sections to help with cardio!

Fairly muddy right now, but manageable. Heard a lot of gunshots in the distance, but still a nice hike!

HikingGreat!IcyMuddySnow

Really really good, even by Summit Metro Park’s standards, which is saying something. The routing was really well laid out in that it made me feel like it wasn’t a loop at all. You start out walking through a heavily wooded area (hints O’Neil’s Woods), but then almost out of nowhere there is a huge flight of stairs that takes you down a very steep area. It was fun how you had No idea there were any stairs, and then, boom, there they all were. (Side note: if you are bringing dogs, they should be well trained. If you have big dogs that pull at the leash, I could see that being very dangerous on these stairs on a wet or winters day). Quick walk along a small River and trail takes you right up to a barn that must now be owned by the parks. It also looked like there were some opportunities for ‘side trails’, or less traveled paths that take you off the main established paths. I was carrying my infant son, and walking with a very muddy poodle or I would of tried them.
