The trails were very well labeled and maintained. It was perfect for choosing different trails to achieve different lengths. Super easy and overall fun!

I really enjoyed these trails. The first time I went we took the Dogwood trail. It was very easy. Today I did the Big Red. It was not quite 3.5 and according to my fitbit was the equivalent of at least 30 flights of stairs. Beautiful views.

Great rock and gravel trails and the dogwood trail was easy enough to take our grand kids with us. It was hot but with all the shade it gave a break from the sun.

Many options for trails and easy paths for kids. A lot of bikers. Hot day but tree cover was plenty and kept the paths shaded and at good temperatures.

Best part is the walk along the ridge line at the top. Still some trees down from the tornado. Passable, but challenging on occasion.

Nice, well-marked trails. A bit muddy, but no where nearly as bad as you’d expect due to the well-maintained trails. Not a bad place to go during the quarantine.

Great trail! Lots of rocks and several small hills but it was a lot of fun. The sound of the stream was great as well.

Great trail. Going clock-wise is pretty easy to navigate with the exception of the last mile or so. Some of the trails on the AllTrails map do not name match with the actual trail. Very happy with the hike but slightly confusing.

Great hike. Watch your step at the top because its very rocky. It may test your ankles. Beautiful rock formations and well traveled. Saw other hikers along the way. There’s a picnic table about midway along the ridge. Also, watch out for mountain bikes.

Loved this mountain bike trail complex. We hiked w/ our 3 dogs but easily shared the trails w/ the BMX crowd. At least a dozen interwoven trails but all well marked at every junction. Extremely well maintained with zero trash or vandalism, we loved it!

Great Trail system! Pay close attention at the beginning to the trails if you want to do this specific loop. we missed the initial turn off but there are so many different trails still had a great experience. Heavily used by mountain bikers but there's enough trail we only actually saw one or two. Kinda fun to just follow the trail that your heart picks and see where you end up. Not too much risk of getting lost since it's on the college campus. My dog loved it. Most of the trails are shaded which is great for the warmer months.

it's a nice hike, plus there's elevation gain. Nuthatch and a couple other trails had overgrown and fallen trees. I was going to go up to the ridge, but thunder and unpredictable weather cut my hike short. On the way down I took the Christmas top trail, and that was wide and easy to walk on. on a really warm day, there were not a lot of people on the trail. I came across a few bikers and few runners, but I was the only one hiking.

Great trail, several mtn biking ones, I went on Christmas Top which led into Mission Ridge, I think. Pretty much uphill until you reach the transition.

Clean trail, be alert for bikers though. Lots of squirrels to keep the pup interested, I would definitely come again.

Very nice. Several trails with alternates and maps along the way that are posted. You do have to watch out for people on bikes, but everyone was very friendly including the pups. Kids enjoyed it too! There are bathrooms and a water fountain at the entrance.
