Had a good time.. trails are great... the app doesn’t reflect the separate trails available very well. Check the sign at the entrance. I’ll be back again to take it on in complete.

Took the orange Alpine street trail to the blue Uplands trail, planned on taking the red Alpine/Ithica trail, ended up being too buggy and didnt want to run out of daylight. Some moderate rocky parts on the trail in different areas. Saw people, deer, and great summer foliage

The confusion on this map is not due to poor signage on the part of the South Mountain Preserve of the Wildlands Conservancy. The title for this hike on AllTrails is incorrect and it's confusing people. All the trails of the Wildlands Conservancy are clearly blazed and in many spots even labeled. I'd hate to have this organization looked down upon or people get 'lost' because of a simple mobile app error. This map begins on the "Orange Trail" [incorrect name], but goes on others. Here is what the AT map does: Alpine Street Trail (orange blaze) Upland Trail (blue blaze) Red Trout Run Trail (red blaze) Alpine Street Trail (orange blaze) If your aim is to follow the red line of the AT map, then follow that order of blazes.

Nice trail with lots of summertime canopy greenery... kept things cool on a warm summer day.

I can agree with the other reviews posted. The markings are difficult to follow at the splits. Also this App map doesn't appear to be accurate. Beautiful trail, very clean, maintained.

A little confusing at some splits, but for the most part very fun and a good amount of challenges.

Great trail! something for the whole family. we went with 5 year old to 53 year old . The trail has areas off to the side with rocks to climb and little water trail/ falls running through out. My self , my girlfriend and her 2 daughters really enjoyed the trail. We are adding to our list of trails to revisit. If you go pay attention to moutain bike riders who frequent the trail.

Great little trail! Not a super difficult hike, but there are some rocky areas that you need to be careful on. My dog was able to handle them very well. Saw some neat flowers and cool snakes! I was also so pleased to see how clean the trail was.

Alpine Street Trail to the Wilderness Trail back to the Alpine Street Trail. Pouring rain 90% of the hike. Also saw a fox and a deer going at it in the woods, super neat!

Great trail! There are a few junctions that are not marked the best but it was not too hard to find your way through. Nice hike with a moderate elevation climb. Definitely nice on a somewhat cold day.

A nice park area to walk. To complete the trails the map has it you have to follow multiple color trails though. We ended up following orange to blue to red and then back to orange. it totaled to about 4 miles. There were some muddy spots but we had no problems with our two pups. The trail was however pretty crowded

We hiked this trail today. The boulders were very cool. So many people were on the trail.

Good trail but extremely confusing at some parts. Ended up doing over 5 miles because we ended up on 3 different trails through the whole thing. Hard to do with a dog- although I’m sure if we were able to stick to one color it would have been fine.
