Google maps takes you to a golf neighborhood. Never found trail. Need more effective directions to trailhead.

A very well maintained trail system that was quite surprising. Perfect for pre-expedition training and gear testing. Couldn’t ask for a more perfect morning hike. Highly recommend.

This is a surprisingly good hike. It begins from a subdivision, which made me skeptical, but you leave any sign of development behind very quickly. I definitely recommend it over, say, the Mossy Ridge trail at Warner for its challenge, solitude, and nice terrain.

The actual trail system is really cool, but very poorly kept. There are no color systems for individual trails and the trails are sometimes difficult to follow. There was next to nobody on the trail. I would do it again, but it could definitely be better.

Took my 11 and 13 year old boys and we had a blast. It had stormed the night before and was very wet and muddy. A lot of the trail doubles as a creek after the storm. It's still a great trail though! Lots of uphills and downhills. It's a great workout.

Very nice little trail. Muddy when wet. I just went part way, but there were other trails that branches off.

Fun, challenging, very rocky, well-marked trail with a few nice views. Will do again. Definitely not “easy” — substantially harder than anything at Percy or Edwin, with several steep climbs and not a single flat step. The 4.4 mile loop took close to 2 hours.

Great trail. Stuck to the main ridge trail— the East Slope was narrower and didn’t feel as stable on the slope. Wouldn’t define this as “easy” if you’re a beginning hiker— especially the part of the East Slope we did.

This is a great trail that’s well marked. Rocky, roots, with lots of twists and climbs. Takes computer ficus.

Nice hike, close to town. Well marked and lots of opportunities to adjust to desired length. Defiantly will hike again.
