Decent hike, worth it if you’re looking to get out of the house.

Parts of the trail were very overgrown. And the spiders really seem to like this trail a lot. Otherwise it’s a nice trail not too challenging, but I’ll try it on a different part of the day and see if the spiderwebs are any less.

Unremarkable views. If you want to hike for five miles in mud up to your ankles - this is the trail for you.

Was a good trial not to muddy today. Good clear path all the way.

This forest is younger than the one in Cedar Forest Loop, but I still enjoyed it. Overall, Hidden Springs Trail is probably the best example of all the features Cedars of Lebanon has to offer.

Nice trail with several sink holes. Used as horse trail as well so it's pretty mucky and muddy in many areas.

Good. Not great. Peaceful in the early but just not a lot of interesting features. Crows grow as day goes on.

This was just an ok trail...a lot of poison ivy and very remote, I wouldn't do this trail alone. There are other options in the area like Long Hunter State Park which offers the Day Loop and Volunteer trail.

A very MUDDY 4.4 mile hike. Trail is almost entirely shaded by the (cedar) tree cover, which contributes to the forest’s dense, damp, mossy appearance. Trail markers are absent at times and intersect with multiple equestrian trails. Having said that, riders definitely still frequent the “foot traffic only” trails as hoof prints are abundant and the horses certainly make the mud situation much worse in various sections of this “5 mile” loop. Geographically speaking, a system of underground streams have created a series of interesting sinkholes which can be viewed along the hike.

I was reading the reviews and was like “there’s no way it can be that muddy!” The reviews are right! It really is that muddy! Steer clear if you don’t want to wash your shoes afterwards

Beautiful trail! Very muddy. Some parts are very trampled with horse prints, causing puddles too. I bet it’s incredible when it’s not as wet thru and thru. Will probably visit during summer though when more dried out so I can spend more time looking up!

Pleasant cedar glade hike with a variety of glades and some neat dry creek beds.
