Mostly scenic, well maintained trails BUT a few stretches of walking on roadside and 2 creeks that were difficult to cross without stepping into water. Lots of wildlife and only a couple hills to cross.

A portion of this hike is on roads/bike roads and another portion is on unpaived roads. It was muddy, but not too bad. the lake part was the most scenic.

IThis trail. Wow. Definitely one of my favorites in the area! We loved the challenging trail, the ledges, the open field views, even the part of the road you walk to contiiie on the Buckeye Trail...muddy in areas but worth every step

More pavement than I expected but not terrible. Overall, easy to follow, not super difficult and decently maintained.

an overall decent hike. fairly well marked. a bit too much pavement for me . my girl didn't appreciate dodging the horse manure along the carriage leg. that said , I'd recommend hiking at least once.
