HikingGreat!

Great trails! Bridge still out on Yellow as of this week. Trails are usually maintained super well. My guess is wood prices are too high right now to fix it. Just take the white trail:)

There’s still a crucial bridge out that requires some dexterity to cross, especially with a bike. Otherwise, very nice trail.

All in all it was a good hike. The trail is clear with the exception of some downed trees from recent storms. Otherwise it is well mark and easy to get in a good hike. I saw more deer on the trail than people.

Nice walk. The trails are in good condition, save for the bridge out. The only downside is that frequently the trail is close to one of the bordering streets, resulting in a fair amount of traffic noise.

This trail is 4 star for me, it had its ups and downs. Cons: muddy, unclear signs for trails (especially the white trail), one or two areas where the trail is completely underwater and I had to cross on tree branches or logs, some of the hike has quite a bit of trash. Pros: very engaging trail, lots of different paths, winding and bending paths, a good moderate hike, deer all over.

I wouldn’t say that this was a moderate hike. It was mostly mild with a few moderate places. It ended up being just short of 10 miles for us since we got off trail in the beginning where the trail wasn’t clearly marked. Thank goodness for the All Trails app which got us back on track. Nice way to spend a day.

Great workout of trails in a tight space. Curvy and some hills made a nice combo. And three tracks you can do any distance from 1.5 to 9

Little muddy but a great trail to start off with. Some steep areas and almost got lost at one spot but if you record your hike you and follow the signs you are good!

HikingGreat!

Trail was great. First time here, I’m not from the area. I went on a day it rained most of the trail but I did do all the loops!!!!! I was the only one out, it was amazing. I will say, as others have said, parts of the trails (back section of white) the markers are far and fairly worn out. A few confusing area where the trail splits and white goes in both ways - including having markers going on both paths. Two parts I didn’t enjoy were the two creek crossings. With the rain, it made the height up to my knees, not sure why there’s no bridge in these two areas, like other areas. Definitely more suited for bikers, as trails are narrow. I saw a lot of poison ivy on the trails right on the edges of the paths. I kept my hands in my pockets most of the time to avoid brushing against any ivy. Not sure about the mileage either. This says 9 miles (and 4 hrs to do it, which seems off) I started my tracker at the parking lot and got 10.3 miles in total, could be a glitch. Overall great bunch of trails (did take a muddy spill on one area but again it was downpouring) Calm and quiet!!! Great Sunday morning walk.

Lots of variety. More challenging than Wolf River or Tour de Wolf. It’s motivated me to get a better bike.

Mountain biking

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.
