Nice hike. The trail is well equipped for muddy situations with wood stump pavings and dry alternative passes. The trail starts with following the green and yellow trail, but then becomes green and red trail, red trail and then green trail at the end. Could be A little confusing if you’re not using the app for navigation.

We hiked part of the green, yellow, and red trail. It was a gorgeous day out and completely serene to listen to the sounds Of running water, all the chirping birds, and just the peacefulness of the outdoors. All trails were pretty dry, well-marked, and there was a nice rocky scenic Lookout point where you could sit and relax for a bit halfway up the yellow loop. i highly recommend this place for a moderately easy hike!

Entire yellow trail loop was most scenic trail of the northern side of the preserve and changes a bit in the brief mileage it involves (thick mossy path, creek with planks, wider gravel trail and overlook). Most of the trails in the preserve were muddy even when they didn't appear that way, but that loop was probably the least of it.

A nice walk in the woods on very well maintained trails - sometimes almost too well maintained, so that parts seem almost (but not quite) like walking on a back road. Some really muddy areas, too, though. Minimal elevation change once you're past the preserve office, so definitely an easy walk. If you want anything more, there's a simple scramble to and from the waterfall, which branches off the main trail. The yellow trail has a pretty overlook; stay left if you want to go straight there. Everything is very well marked, and there's a good cell signal everywhere. (I have Verizon.) My dog loves the whole preserve, and we go often.

a pretty good hike. Very rocky, and muddy at spots.The trail doesn't line up with the map, but it's close enough and well marked. Sections are pretty tough if you're not in shape. But otherwise, not a bad hike.

I am quite sad that this trail was poorly marked, didn’t align with the map provided here, and provided no clear detour for the work being done on the green trail! We had a wonderful time with some beautiful waterfall views, rock hopping, and far landscapes of the summer trees. We spent a lot of time trying to get out of the partially blocked off loop, and it took us a bit to realize we had to park at the bottom, then head straight up to enter! We tried using the entrance off of the entry road, but it was very washed out. The flowers there are absolutely beautiful and worth seeing if nothing else! The waterfalls are gorgeous. Just wish they were better marked and managed!
