Felt like we were in a rainforest! But not easy- more a medium with hills.

Scenery is nice now that everything is grown again but the trail was super muddy and puddled water in many places.

Nice Trail, Would say the first part is Moderate but trail gets easier after the Uphill Climb. After the Susan's Point overlook, Do not follow the Trail Heading down, it will lead you behind the nature center and you will have to walk on the road to get back to the Parking lot, Looks like everyone ends up doing that. Stay on Apple Orchard Loop and Go back the original way to the parking lot.

Decent hilly hike with great scenery. Some trails washed out/overgrown.

Took the family for an easy short trail. Upon starting down a grassy trail were very steep stairs and hill. Once on top we were met with private property signs to the right and mud down both sides of the loop. We turned around and went back down the hill and found a different location. My wife who is healing from a broken foot found it difficult to get up and down the hill/stairs.

Was pretty nice even in the winter, would love to check it out when things are green and the ground is dryer.

Cool trail. A lot of elevation changes. Pretty muddy in January. A lot of overlook spots.

Loved it. The end was kinda sketchy. We ended up behind the nature preserve building and walked the street back to the car. We lucked out and everything was dry. Would be pretty messy if it were all wet.

Short but difficult. Some loops are confusing to navigate

Excellent little used trail system. After a good climb up the ridge, which looks like it could be muddy in wet weather, the trail follows the edges of the large ridge. Easy to spend 1-2 hours on the loops and overlooks. Nice views of the valleys with quite a few benches to rest and take in the forest. There’s sufficient signs but it’s best to take a map or gps if you don’t want too much exploring to get back to the parking lot. The area is named Forest Ridge Preserve.

Good loop for exercise & training, some nice steep vertical in short time, and very little traffic.

***Coyotes*** my dog and I came across a pack of coyotes that followed us for a half a mile. Very scary experience. Reported the incident to the Moreland Police Department
