Difficult to navigate since it's really poorly marked.

Beautiful area & occasionally challenging trail. My one complaint is that it's poorly marked which is particularly troublesome at turns and intersections along the way; despite having a map, that isn't very easy to follow, I got off track several times & became concerned that I was headed in the wrong direction.
The addition of blazes would make this an ideal trail. Be prepared to get muddy if there's been rain or on the spring, some sections were soggy.

Just had bilateral knee replacement surgery 4.5 months ago. The "Loop" took me 2.5 hours to finish, a bit sore and swollen but great morning of rehab!

If not for the part where you walk on road this would be a 5 star trail.

Not well marked at all. I'm an avid trailer and got lost twice the first time around. Luckily, other hikers were very helpful. An absolutely beautiful trail once you find your way.

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.
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.

not well marked later in the trail, easy to less moderate difficulty, varied terrain, lots of guns shots on Saturday am, more popular later in the day.
