This trail was beautiful and really fun. The only complaint I have is having to cross the Shippack Creek which got my feet soaked for the rest of the trail.

Very hard trail to follow. A decent park though with some nice views of the creek. Ended up walking a bunch of random trails and jumping on and off the loop trail shown for this hike.

Found the horse trail incredibly difficult to follow, almost no markings and never at the many path intersections. Constantly checking my phone to make sure I was still on the trail detracted from the enjoyment of being out in nature.

Great hike and a beautiful day to start 2017. Challenging and peaceful throughout the entire year.

Definitely on the easier side. If you do the Horse trail watch out for horse turds. It was cold today so they were all frozen. Also, if you plan on doing the entire Horse trail as a loop you do have to cross a large creek which I would have done in a warmer weather. No worries, you can hike up the road to a bridge and cross the stream. It's not far and there was a very defined trail on the over side that led right back to the trail. I certainly wasn't the first to do that.

Beautiful scenery I would consider this easy not moderate

I just moved to the area so I wanted to check out the park. I wasn't able to find the actual trail until the end of my run. Once I did, I really enjoyed it. When I first started I ran on a pseudo trail around the fields. Beautiful views but no where to really go and high grass. I'll definitely go back now that I know where the actual trail is and out down some miles.

Came here with great company and has a blast. The trails were moderate, but were a ton of fun due to the small footing challenge.
There was a whole lot of horses all over the trails back in Evansburg.
Be careful for horse poop...especially along this trial!
The water appeared very clear and the dog had a blast putting her feet into the water.
Unfortunately, the camera had lost battery so we were unable to take any pictures...we will have to go back again because the park was stunning.

A quiet trail with beautiful scenery. The path gets pretty muddy when it rains so make sure you wear adequate shoes.

We liked it so much! There is hiking trail along river. It's a little bit "wild"(we lost our path couple of times) and wet, but forest is very beautiful. It took us (husband and me, 27y.o.) about 2 hours to close a trail loop, but bridge at the very end was closed, so we had to go all the way back :)
