Great walk in the woods along clearly marked trails.

Nice trail through a portion of French Creek SP. Some extremely minor stream crossings, and some rocky sections, but nothing too strenuous. I went around the loop portion counter-clockwise, and one section of the trail had a decent-sized climb. I enjoyed the time in the woods, but there was no really scenic sections or any "payoff" spots - just a trail through the woods. And personally, maybe it's my inexperience, but I think the French Creek trails are poorly marked. There's an occasional blaze to let me know I'm on the right path, but I passed intersections with no real markings - and no marking (that I saw) at the trail-head to indicate that it was the start of the trail that I wanted. But, the alltrails app location helped me verify things when I wasn't quite sure what was going on. Some sections are so narrow that it felt like bush-whacking. Saw a few mountain bikers, and a few hiking groups. All-in-all, a good afternoon hike that I would do again.

I enjoyed this trail very much. The variation of terrain makes for an interesting hike, and the distance is good for a morning or afternoon hike without taking up the whole day. I thought that the burns on the trees from the fire a few years ago were especially interesting and so was Miller's Point.

Enjoyable 6 mile hike. Trail offers enough elevation and terrain changes to make it moderately challenging. Parts of the trails are very rock so its almost like hiking through a dried creek bed. I brought my dog out with me and she had no issues. Biggest complaint is that the trails are poorly marked.
