The trail was short and quick for me. I like the scenery and it’s nice for hiking & riding!

this trail is used mostly by x county runners and mountain bikes. not the most picturesque, but for a park plopped in the middle of town it does give you a sense of woodsyness.(just coined that word). A great trail for mountain biking!! I go there quite often. it's mostly tight and technical except for the "white trail". the white trial has a lot of rolling hills, it's in the wood but the track isnt very narrow, and not at all technical. If you have decent cardio you can fly through that section. If you're a mountain biker, I'd say it's worth about an hour drive. If you're a day hiker then I'd probably pass unless you live in the city.

Pretty neat trail for the area. Just a nice long walk through the woods, nothing too crazy.

Love this set of trails. Stanky creek is the new home trail for the fortitude trail race taking place sept. 2020. Love coming out here and see how great the course is marked and makes measuring the course out so much easier. Great for all skill levels.

Great for what it is: land repurposed for outdoor activities. Though it washes out pretty badly and trees tend to drop a lot, the trails are pretty technical. Great workout right in Bartlett. Mind the deer, as they seem to mind us. Very quiet for its location.

Good hike, trail has lots of signs but still got off course.

The signs are not accurate at all. If you follow a sign that says it’s pointing to the parking lot, it leads you like 2 miles out of the trail, I turned around when I realized where it was going thanks to this trail map. But if you check GPS every ten minutes or so, great hike.

I ride this trail almost every week and it is the most challenging but fun trail that I have ridden in the Memphis area. I usually see at least one deer during my rides and it’s surprisingly peaceful and quiet considering it’s surrounded by neighborhoods. I should add that new signs have been added and I found the trail easy to navigate/ link the different trails together.

I give this trail a 10 for the Memphis area. This is my first time sampling this one, and it appears the stories are true, the trail is great and I'll be back.

This is a convenient place to hike or bike if you live in the Bartlett area. I personally found the trails to be poorly marked and it was hard to tell where we were. Other than that, it was okay. Like I said, it’s convenient. If you’re looking for something to kill a few hours and you don’t want to drive far, this is a good place to do it.

Bring your trail shoes and plan to get muddy. Hard to lose yourself in the run due to such long and wet sections where you must traverse in 6 plus inches of mud/retained water. I won’t come back here until it hasn’t rained for weeks. Trails are not well marked.
