This is a great trail. One of the best running trails in Central Ohio and a great hike even under snow.

Awesome for a city park. Sure, it's heavily used. It's not a wilderness area. It's just a well thought out, well maintained set of trails with a lot of gorgeous fall colors and nice elevation changes. The only challenge would be how far you choose to hike. There are no difficult sections. And for the users here talking about venturing off trails - please just don't. There are way too many people using these trails for that.

I liked this trail. Went off trail and snapped some great pics. Too bad people playing pokemon go take away the serenity of it all. smh Go during a non busy time like middle of day. If you go in the evening, be prepared to come across people who just can't appreciate nature.

It was an easy stroll with a cinder base. Lots of ravines and several park signs explaining the terrain and history.

A pleasant walk. Not very crowded on Sunday evening. Trail is a good walking surface. Some gentle hills and there is plenty of seating along the way. The absence of the litter on a stick that has become prevalent in so many parks was welcome. The trail is not very scenic but is shady.
