We followed the yellow trail and it was fantastic. We had plenty of spots to dip into the want creek and it was very refreshing on an 80 degree afternoon. Great for families and leashed dogs. 1-10 on difficulty I’d give it a 3-4 based on a few steep, narrow parts but 70% is fairly flat.

Rained hard last night. Very muddy in some spots but for the most part alternative paths available. Started around 8:45 and trail started filling up after we hit halfway. Some people wearing masks, most not. Easy to distance in some spots, not so in others. There’s one climb on the north side of the creek but otherwise mostly low grade entire loop. Some other posts mention hiking along the road; it gets a little confusing around Water Street Rd. The trail stops and you have to walk along the guard rail and some of the spots are blind to cars. Not a long stretch but worth knowing if you’re hiking with kids. Overall enjoyable. Took us a little over 2 hours with many stops along the creek to explore.

Trails were interesting with nice scenery. It is very muddy & you have to watch out for horse poop most of the way. It also feels like way longer than 4.7 miles. My dog only left with one single tick on her which is pretty good for how narrow some of the trails get at certain points. Parking was very easy. Parking lot bathrooms were super clean (weird, but it’s a nice plus). NOTE: Half way through the loop you have to walk on a main road to get to the other side of it. There are no signs to direct you so use the GPS navigation map on this app to help you.

A fun hike along the creek with quirky signs to guide the way. It was a bit confusing to navigate through the paved road sections, but otherwise a great trail.

A little muddy, but not too bad.

HORRIBLE! This is an EASY trail. I went a mile and turned around. I came for peace and quiet and was greeted with kids yelling, parents yelling at them. If I could give zero stars I would. I will never ever be coming back here

I love this trail and think everyone should be able to use it equally, but please don’t bike three wide or bring a party of 12. Considering the circumstances it seems unreasonable.

Nice moderate hike... A bit hard to figure out the direction to take. Only ended up hiking 3.5 miles.

I would recommend this trail. There are quite a few muddy spots and poop! We did get lost as one point but there are lots of opportunities to get back on track! Great moderate level trail!

Trail is a little confusing after you cross the bridge and get onto the road. Cool to be able to walk sown to the waters edge and can go into the creek.

Nice, easy hike. The trail is well marked, but was a little confusing that part of the trail is a on a paved road (made me a bit nervous as cars were passing by and there's not much of a shoulder). Overall it was an enjoyable hike, took us just around 2 hours with a few short stops. Nice to walk along the creek and see people fishing, etc.

Nice trail, can get a little muddy in some spots. Best section is along a slope looking down at the creek.

Awesome trail that is 5.0 miles. Super muddy and you do have to walk on the road/highway for about .5 miles and it is rather dangerous for small kids because the cars were flying by us!

Great hike. It was muddy and the creek was very high. The kids had a lot fun with the puddles and bridges. It is mostly flat and wooded. There is one small section on the road but it felt safe. We had a 4yo and 6yo with us and 5 miles is about their limit.

Pretty trail and easy hike. Goes on the road at some points and that part can get a little boring, but otherwise good trail. We even saw some turtles!
