We ended up here after wandering for an hour trying (unsuccessfully) to find and stay on Pleasant Valley Trail. Beautiful trail thru woods with enough incline and decline to feel like we were hiking (and not just walking). A little muddy but that’s all part of hiking as far as I’m concerned. Would definitely do this one again.

It rained the day before, so trail was very muddy. There were what looked like seeps in the middle of the trail in spots, so it’s likely muddy even in dry weather. No view or anything, but a good walk in the woods. Trail is well-maintained, with all blowdowns cleared.

I didn't much care for this trail because it was overgrown in places. And the only noticeable wildflowers were those tiny yellow ones. There wasn't even anything worth taking a picture of. I won't be doing that trail again.

quick little hike, not exceptional. close to 422 so it can be a bit noisy and in places it's a bit washed out. doesn't stop us from coming back though.

Starts at the parking lot loops around into some dense forest The trail is in good shape until the downhill side of it have some good hiking boots as the downhill part of the trail will be muddy and washed out other than that beautiful scenery a nice morning hike

Nice walk, took Both the short and Long loop. Highway noise is a bit of a bummer.

Easy, well marked trail. Only downside for me is that there’s nothing really to see.. it’s a loop through the woods there isn’t a destination/water feature/view to see. Great for a quick walk with the dogs.

The trail is marked well with green paint— know you are on the short loop when you see these (the other signs are a bit twisted around and confusing).

Very muddy. Lots of down trees and parts where brush blocked path. Well marked.
