Getting There

The only true loop trail is the 2.5 mile long Orange Loop. The Hemlock Point Trail in combination with the Green Connector trail also makes a nice manageable loop of about 2.5 miles in total. Whitetail Nature Trail is a partial loop partial out and back totaling about 1 mile. The full park circuit involves the red trail (5 miles), the blue trail (7.5 miles), the green connector trail (1.5 miles), and part of the Perkiomen Trail (about a 1.5 mile segment). To complete the entire circuit is about 15 to 16 miles and involves elevation changes from about 210 feet at the lowest point (Crossing Perkiomen Creek below the reservoir) to about 400 feet (Along the blue trail adjacent to Hill Road). Elevation changes along the blue trail are frequent, this is the most demanding trail in the park. The largest single elevation change of 150 feet is traversing north along the green loop trail from where it meets the Perkiomen trail. (210 feet to 360 feet)

Moderate hike, nicely marked trails. Beware that horses use the trail and in some spots the trail is narrow.

Lots of sun exposure, so Im glad I wore a hat and sunscreen. Not many elevation changes, so a pretty relaxing walk.

Beautiful trails for horseback riding. Different trails of varying difficulty. nothing crazy. Long section of trail with barriers along side road where you would hope cars would slow down but most don't. Nicely maintained and a gorgeous horse camping area that is sadly under utilized. Heading back mid September for a weekend horse camping trip

My son and I hiked the entire thing today. I loved it but was not prepared for a 12 mile hike. Wrong shoes and inexperienced hiker. We werent intending to do the whole thing but somehow we did. We're just starting to learn how trail systems work. Im definitely going back. Now off to nurse this giant blister!

Mountain biking

The blue trail from Green Lane Far Parking lot at Ward Rd was a bit too technical for my mountain biking ability. Ended up leaving the trail at Swinging Bridge Rd to Broomstick to Ward to loop back to the car. Next time will try going in the opposite direction to the red trail to mountain bike. It was beautiful, though, and would have been better for me if I had hiked.

Hiking

Two buddies and myself did this route but trimmed some of the fat off the planned route to get it to 10.5 miles. We went after a day of rain and overnight light covering of snow. This meant some mud in spots but also active creeks/runoffs. These full runoffs made for a few fun crossing that had funner options with logs that were just a little too slippery for our taste. These sections were marked with the yellow and black diamond sign for the first 1/3 or so. The trail also featured some walking next to roads but there was a paved walking path and barrier. Nice chunk of the route was fire access roads. Hiked with a friend who called it “very bikeable”

Love this park. I've hiked every single trail multiple times. It's always maintained and well marked. My dogs also love hiking here!

Great trail with beautiful scenery. Not sure I agree with the “Moderate” rating, i would personally rate it as easy. Perhaps the length is what warrants the rating. I encountered several groups of horseback riders and at times it was a challenge to avoid the horse dung, but still a very pleasant hike. I took the Blue trail to the Red trail clockwise around the lake and took the green lane connector back to the blue. A couple miles of the trail are wide single lane gravel roads wide enough for a full sized vehicle. There was also close to 2 miles of paved trail. Would be nicer if it was all foot path.

HikingPrivate propertyRocky

Trail is very well maintained. There are sections that run through private property, but it’s clearly marked to “ please stay on trail. The parts that are steep are marked with warning signs. You can see the lake most of the time witch is nice. . The All trails app is extremely helpful to keep from going on wrong trails( other loops ) and tracks how far you have come and other information . This is a long trail but mostly flat without ridiculous inclines. My only suggestion is have the trail marked better in some area where there are turns and road crossings. Over all I loved it and will go again... it’s right near my house❤️

I hiked this loop every weekend with my pup. I could complete it in 4-5 hours keeping a good pace and letting my dog, Ace, swim in the water every now and then. It's a very clean park and just enough challenge to make you feel good at the end.

I did the 12 and 1/2 Mile Trail in about 4 and 1/2 hours. It was really nice out. Good trail. very clean. Very well marked. I took a small Daypack with some water and snacks and it worked out well.

I hiked loop trail today for the first time, and it is measured 12 miles even. I did it in 4.5 hours, carried my backpack with a camera, a binoculars and an apple and two bottles of water, love it, and will do it again
