Easy trail with nice variety of good sized trees. Did the loop counter-clockwise and got a bit off-track on the bottom east to west leg. Lots of intersecting tracks. Shift to satellite mode on that section to stay on track. Nice picnic table at the lake. Trail was in good very condition on this Thanksgiving afternoon with numerous other hikers out to burn off some calories before turkey dinner and desert.

The area is really great for trail running. All the 500’s trails are gravel roads. The section 36 portion was awesome single track. Don’t do the TNT trail - it’s basically a game trail, lots of thorny plants and heavy brush.

The parking lot only has room for 4-5 cars which could be an issue on weekends. There were two spots today on a Tuesday early afternoon. The trail is wide and flat for the most part; easy to walk side by side. Streams and full and beautiful right now. There is a small lake at the top which is definitely worth the walk. You can also bring your lumberjack tools to practice axe-throwing or log chopping for your next event! See pics for an explanation.

I did this trail again last Sunday and got poison oak please watch for it this time of the year I am covered in rash and it is not fun!

Nice, easy trail with few hills. I'd describe it as more of a pleasant walk through the woods than a hike. Definitely family-friendly, and if your kids get tuckered out, there are cross trails you can use to shorten it and get back to your vehicle faster. It's also very dog friendly, but be aware that dogs are allowed off leash. I like to park at the Arboretum and access this trail via the Intensive Management Loop.

I love this hike went last Sunday and am coming back today to do it again. The lake at the top is a nice cherry on top as well. My dogs like this hike but there is a sign posted at the beginning that dogs can be off leash if they respond to you when you call them. That does make it hard for people that have dogs that are on the leash though due to them feeling fight or flight when a dog off leash approaches them.

Great trail! We did have to park across the highway because there’s only 4 spots.
