HikingGreat!

Very easy, mostly flat with a few inclined spots. Very well kept trail and partially paved. Toward southern end of trail well packed gravel.

Adequately maintained flat, straight, asphalt trail that runs parallel to a ditch. Often encountered large clumps of mowed leaves and grass on the path. Not a destination.

RunningGreat!

Nice and calm trail. Very simple and flat. Not too much traffic for 5pm on a Thursday. Will come back. I’ve just come to find out that this app specifies “out-and-back” trails length by both ways added together. Meaning - this trail is marked as 5.5 miles, but instead it’s 2.25 miles out, and 2.25 back.

HikingGreat!

We tend to go in the evening. Yet anytime is great. Beautifully shaded. Wear sunglasses towards evening. A lot of bugs as there’s a lot of tiny creeks nearby. Beginner level. I take some neighbor kids with my son & I sometimes. The little 3 year old keeps up just fine as it’s nice and flat. Goes off into a stony trail. Beautiful scenery the whole way through. Kept up nicely.

Great Easy, beginners trail. Half is paved and half is stone. Clean, benches along the way.

Nice easy trail for a day out. More traffic than I cared for due to COVID19 but great trail! Probably prettier when everything is in bloom. The trail stops short of the map and therefore does not allow for verification.

Flat, paved, mix of shade and sun, quiet on a weekday. Great with the dog. Bonus flowers and butterflies!

First to Review

Nice trail for a walk. Very well groomed and flat. Can take a connector path into Metzger park and extend the trail by another 1-1/2 miles.
