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

Pretty views into the ravines. Well maintained, busy trail. We didn't complete the entire trail, just 2 mils of it. Very nice Nature Center at the Trailhead. Saw an owl by the creek, heard a woodpecker.

Nice wide leveled and debris free trails great for running or hiking. Scenery is not exceptional, but it is a nice escape with minimal road noise or intrusion from civilization!

Fun trail with moderate up and down hill sections. for the most part, it's a well maintained trail. So, if you're looking for a rugged trail running experience, you can find better at nearby Alum Creek. Lots of people on the weekend but the trail's wide enough that it's not really an issue. Mostly shady with a few sunny spots.

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.

Excellent trail with plenty of calming scenery. Provides challenging hike with plenty incline. Good trail for kiddos too.

Awesome. Go off trail and walk the creek. There are some cool small waterfalls. Relaxing hike!

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.

This trail is great, not too easy or difficult even for a beginner hiker. My only complaint is the lack of correct signage throughout this trail specifically! It's easy to get a bit off course if you don't know the trail already. Otherwise great for hiking and pets!

Great! The Nature Center was a nice wrap-up.

Great trail, even pushed my 18mo old daughter in the stroller through This and the overlook trail for a 4.8mi jaunt. We love this park

Excellent trails! I live two minutes away, so I'm always running out here during the day.
