Several muddy areas along the trail, but overall a very enjoyable trail run. My dog couldn’t get enough of it

Love this trail. It’s dry enough to ride but there are definitely some wet spots right now.

HikingBugsGreat!

It’s really flat and there’s no rewarding views or creeks etc. I think this would be a really fun bike ride, but for a 7 mile hike it kind of drags. Definitely bring bug spray. It’s easy to find and signs are clearly marked. Exactly halfway, there’s a bench, and that’s pretty much the only place for hikers to stop and eat.

What a fun trail. I hiked it but did not finish. I didn’t realize that this was geared for mountain biking but they were polite and made room. Lots of birdwatching and foliage to observe.

Great trail! Hike it 5/30/20 with a group of scouts in preparation for a back packing trip in July. It was a little muddy, but nothing terrible. Area is very pretty, and the trail is well shaded.

Did this trail today on our new bikes and it was fun, but not for beginner or novice mountain bikers. Some rough sections with lots of rocks and large roots. I had to walk my bike in sections, particularly the last half mile (mostly uphill and big roots - I’m not a strong biker). Pretty scenery and not terribly crowded. With all the rain this past week, a few sections were pretty muddy.

Nice trail. Would be easy if not for the length. Towards the end the climb gets tough. I will definitely be going back.

Took my daughter on her first trail ride here. We had a great time for the first few miles but the last two involved a lot of walking our bikes over large roots and rocky areas that were a little much for a beginner. it was a beautiful trail, well maintained and the few bikers we met along the way were all really nice and thoughtful riders.

This trail is a great if you’re trying to practice for harder hikes. Consistently up and down. Not too hard at first but after 7.8 miles you feel super drained. Muddy in low spots (had rained 2 days prior). Would be fun on a bike, but we hiked. We saw a snake, several lizards, birds, etc. woodpeckers could be heard in the trees. Took us about 4 hours including stopping for lunch.

Did this counter-clockwise. It was great, but the entire time we were looking for the great wall; of which there isn't one. Why is it called Great Wall, if there isn't a wall.

Great time hiking. My dog had a good time too. Plenty of places to stop to give water to her.

It's one of my favourites on FATS. Counter clockwise is where it's at!

this Trail is perfect for hiking a mountain biking the length of the trail makes it challenging I would not recommend for a beginner hikers but if you've ever hiked the couple long Trails this Trail would be perfect for you lots of opportunity to run into wildlife living and dead LOL
