Beautiful, sunny day with high winds on the field trails, calm solitude in the valleys.

Nice trail with fabulous views but a little dangerous along the upper rim because of melting snow & mud. Be cautious. Would be great when weather dries up.

There’s been a lot of rain lately and the creek is high so you can’t complete some of the trails.

It’s a beautiful trail. It’s currently muddy and the creek is high so you can’t get across all the trails.

Right now the trail is very muddy in the lower areas and be sure to wear bug spray! We did the outer loop in a little over 2 hours. Very enjoyable but quite the workout for this out of shape 50 something woman!

Went there today. We were raised in the Ashland area but never hiked when we lived here. Moved to Asheville, NC 28 years ago and became avid hikers. But then we got old and decided to move back. So glad we found places to get out in nature. The trails were pretty dry and the creeks crossable. Loved it! Hills and creek crossings, bridges, nice views and even a meadow. We hiked the outer trail plus the education trail for 4.2 miles. Definitely more than a walk in the woods. Only saw 1 other person until we were coming close to the parking area. So much thanks to the people who donated the land for all of us to enjoy.

Really pretty trail with a lot of changes in it’s ‘atmosphere’. There are hills, a lot of different trees, rock formations and a decent size creek. I really enjoyed this trail a lot.

Great trail for day hiking or trail running. there are more trails in it than listed here, for a total of 6 or 7 you can do a easy 1 or 2 mile with fairly level grades or a 10 miler with ups and downs. it is beautiful and great for all skill levels. no camping though. i live close by and hike this a couple times a week check out the website for a full list of routes

Beautiful and fun! Lots of trails, great hike! Definitely got my feet wet twice crossing water. Loved it! Can't wait to come back. Trails were very well marked and trees had trail color code painted on them so you know you are still on the right trail. Must visit. Irritating that people hiked with their dogs off leash, and did not respond when I asked them to secure their dog before approaching mine. "My dog is so friendly!" They said. Well, The dogs did not like each other. Preventable. Put the leash on your dog

Beautiful, wooded trail. We did Spangler to Outer Trail, hopped on Strock Trail, then back to Outer Trail to Trillium to Spangler. Ended up being 4.3 miles with some good elevations. Too bad we had to hustle on the last half of the trail due to getting caught in a thunderstorm. Wished we could have enjoyed the second half more.

I don't know if it's the above average recent rainfall, but I wish that I would have known Saturday, 7/15/17 before attempting the Spangler trail portion that I would be forced to be in ankle deep water at multiple junctures along the trail. We didn't encounter the first crossing until well into the trail and once we crossed that we felt we needed to go forward rather than retrace our steps. Ended up with at least four places where it was difficult to avoid getting our shoes wet.
