Great trail. You can tell a lot of people come out on their bikes.

Took the centerline trail to southside loop north. Took high and dry trail back to the southside loop. Very good trail conditions and few people. Fairly easy hike.

Nature tripsGreat!

Well marked and maintained. Little to no traffic on a comfortable Sunday afternoon. However, this is a dual purpose hiking and biking trail so be on he lookout for bikers. Take time to leave the marked path and get better views of the creek.

HikingGreat!

This is a mountain biker's trail. There will be bikers racing by you. No real views but nice spot by the Creek. Went counter-clockwise and at the beginning you get to hear a lot of shooting from a firing range. OK not my favorite but if you just want to get out, it was OK.

Nice, well maintained trails. Beautiful forestry. Especially enjoyed the creek on such a hot day, but once is enough for me here. I prefer more variety and elevation.

HikingFeeGreat!

Great quiet walk in the woods. Beautiful tranquil. Breaking up the trail started on Southside transitioned into Lizard. Cut back on centerline and finished back on Southside back to parking. Super well marked so cam be customized to your distance. Next time starting out opposite way on Southside and we will see where my legs go.

Mountain bikingBridge outGreat!

Very well marked with tree signs, arrows for optional trails and kiosks with a map and 'you are here' designation. Lots of variety with rocks, roots, and a lot of soft sand along the river. Mostly flat and fast. Nice surprise at the Groce trailhead which had a tire inflation kiosk with tools.
