Nice little hike around the lake. I would call this one easy, not moderate. Was good hike to make with my dog. Though he was very tempted to go in a few times!

Real nice easy trail around the Muddy Run lake reservoir. I clocked 4 miles total in less then an 1 1/2 hrs at a brisk pace. Great views of the lake and wildlife. Yellow blaze pretty easy to follow most of the way, along the recreation area just follow the lake bank.

Great trail for those who want a real hike. Pants and long sleeves are a must. There are briars and overgrowth. Saw a ton of wildlife and great views!

Pros: great wildlife; well-blazed Cons: very overgrown in multiple places; TONS of barberry growing over the trail If the trail was maintained, it would be a very nice, peaceful hike. Not difficult, but not boring, and tons of wildlife. Unfortunately, I won't be back anytime soon due to the amount of barberry covering the path.

This was a great easy hike for our 7 month old pup. Not too long or too difficult. There are rocky slopes near the water and some forest paths that are a bit overgrown so wear long pants and sturdy shoes. Plenty of shade and places to sit to rest if needed. Take a picnic and enjoy! It's very nice here!

Trails heads not very easy to find, but nicely marked once on the trail. Very overgrown in spots, but otherwise a decent hike.

The beginning of the trial (where All Trial has you park) and to get to where the trial is actually marked is about 1/2 mile. But once you get there this is a great trial. Not a lot of evaluation change and follow the lake all the way around. There is a mine field of goose poop toward the end...that was a bit disgusting!

I hike this trail in all seasons. It is well marked and there are a lot of different birds. I saw 3 deer today.

One of my new favorites. Didn’t run into anyone else, loop was well marked, and lots of birds and deer. Lake is really cool when frozen over, too. Awesome hike.

A nice trail to run as a rest day from more challenging elevation and mileage, still technical in terms of rocks & roots. Very pretty, lake views the entire time and lots of wildlife (cranes, turtles, deer, etc)

By far my favorite 3.5 mile trail run! it has challenging heavy rooted areas, rocky terrain, and smooth narrow dirt trails. I find it best to park at the top parking lot and start by running over the red bridge. Also there's many more trails at muddy run... After you go over the 2nd bridge instead of turning left in the woods go strait up the hill.

yellow trail was a bit hard to find but once on it was a good 2 hour hike. very rough terrain hike around the lake. you can access the start either by going to the parking lot with the snack shop and following the lake till you see the start point or go to the visitor building and walk across the roped off bridge at the end of the parking lot.
