muddy but beautiful very steep and worn trails can be confusing at times but most turnoffs are short loops and arent too hard to figure out!! lots of mushrooms and newts!

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

Great local gem, would be muddy but beautiful if water was flowing after a rain! Not that difficult one large hill is all. Enjoy

Just, meh. Poorly designed trail with lots of standing and runoff water damage. With the great hillside and slope they have to work with, a better job could have been done. Overall scenery was good, but could have been better.
