Nice trail with a lot of different vegetation. Some areas can get narrow with tall vegetation on both sides but nothing too bad. I forgot to stop the timer at the end and sat at the parking lot with my son for awhile so it doesn’t take as long as I recorded.

Enjoyable little trail. Can take various routes/turns along the way. Would recommend taking a look at the map near the trailhead before heading out. Mostly flat with a few areas to take a closer look at the nearby creek. Was fairly muddy along the way.

Nice trail! Not sure if we followed it exactly as mapped her due to no trail markings indicating wildflower reserve trail. Several trails overlapped but when following map we were able to hike in general direction. Ended up doing 2.4 miles. Muddy and overgrown in some spots, but passable. Slightly steep inclines at start and finish but mostly flat during the majority of the hike. Would do again!

Nice trail. Initial descend and final climb a fair challenge. The trail was never marked “ wildflower trail” but is located at the wildflower reserve. Trail is blazed and marked by other names. Follow along the creek.

The trail the app says it is is a couple of trailers intertwined together. with the help of a map they offer you can find your way in any direction you want easily very nice. the beaver trail was overgrown the most the others were perfect. narrow paths and more plant growth than trees. very nice for my first hike.

Trail is not called what the app says - it was a combination of several trails. It was really enjoyable despite a lot of areas being very overgrown or muddy.

Very beautiful trail! definitely recommend going on Hickory Trail. Gives you access to the creek when the water is low is its own fun walk

Nice trail, easy hike, lots of mud when we went in late June. The wildflower loop was beautiful, butterflies, colorful plants.

The dark blue trail (Jennings Trail) is the longest trail in the park and very nice. I really enjoyed my time on the trail. Make sure you visit the information area in the wildflower reserve. Lots of things to see and when I was there the attendant was amazing and taught me so much.

I didn't follow the path exactly, but close enough. Some trails were really muddy, not unexpected. Saw a nice variety of wildflowers and wildlife.

Nice trail. Not to crowded. Muddy, as expected after a rain. Not many huge hills. Overall a pretty good trail.

Nice easy hike, with some parts beside the river. We saw scarlet tanagers, woodpeckers, and other birds. The best part were the bluebells, trillium and other flowers! We wore waterproof shoes since it had been raining and used our sticks. It was muddy.
