Road bikingGreat!

Super chill and easy bike ride. Looks great with the leaves changing. Would be a nice walk as well.

Great trail. Every other Saturday they offer tours when the park is open.

Came out here before just before a big storm hit. did a quick run in light rain, trail did really good with a little bit of water on it. there was one super muddy part, but I was able to skirt around the the edge. They are removing some downed trees about halfway through but path is cleared through them

First to Review

Really enjoyable hike in the heart of the city. My husband and I did this in a couple of hours one afternoon trying to beat the rain. While it was unseasonably warm for December, it was an excellent hike. It is hard to tell what is part of the old Forest Loop and what is part of just the other trails in the park so I did this also in conjunction with the other portions of the Overton Park trails - to make sure you’re actually on the Old Forest Loop follow the markers along the trail.
