The majority of this route is a bridle trail, not the Buckeye Trail. You’re only on the Buckeye Trail for a few minutes. I started at Judges Lake so I could avoid the busy paved trail.

Was pretty dry in most places with some muddy areas. Sunny and not a lot of traffic. Really enjoyed it!

Great easy hike (a couple small hills). Mostly dry today with a few muddy patches. Had the trail all to myself for the most part. Great way to spend a sunny day.

HikingGreat!

We went during peak fall. The park was really busy and this trail was beautiful and lightly traveled. We enjoyed the hike a lot.

Well marked trail. Slightly muddy after an evening of rain. Wide path, watch out for road apples.

Easy going and lightly travelled. Not too many hills, but definitely keeps your heart beating! We will definitely be back when the leaves start changing

Nice trail. Lightly traveled. Was lightly trafficked as stated. A little more traffic on the way back (around 11am on a Sunday). I did the leg to Kellogg Rd. Some good hills to go up, important for yoga pants season. :)

Not a bad trail. 37 degrees with some snow cover. Had pretty light traffic though most of the trail. I’d go again.

Well maintained, fairly dry, some incline but not terrible. Starts at a lake, ends at a pond, and back. Shady and breezy in some sections makes for a nice day hike.

A nice mid morning hike. Not too long and has some hills. I did not see anyone else on the trail.
