I did Big Red loop and had a great time! A little more elevation but nothing overly difficult. Brought my dog and had a great time!

Great place to hike. Very well signed. Did about 8 miles, all at night. Very nice layout.

Great hike today with the dogs. Very happy with how easily we navigated this trail with the dogs. Very well marked, easy trail.

This is a very well maintained set of trails. They are a very short distance from my house, so I am sure I will be using them again.

Very well maintained and marked trails offering a variety of difficulty for mountain biking, trail running or hiking. Excellent place to take the dogs. No particular points of interest, per se, just a pretty walk thru the woods (although the White Oak Ridge section off of the orange and yellow loops looks like it offers a beautiful view in the fall/winter).

well-maintained trails of differing levels of difficulty; pretty views from white oak ridge (yellow & orange trails)-- probably more so when the leaves have fallen;

absolutely amazing place for long trips with dogs

This area has many nice trails, especially considering the convenient location and ease of access. You can choose between long trails and short trails, and the blazes and maps are relatively simple to read, especially after a couple of visits.

It's nice to get out into the woods for a trail run, but you'll never feel "away from it all" while on White Mountain - it's close to civilization.

If you're allergic to poison ivy, stay on trail.

There were many trails that connected to the main path and a map post at every cross area. I guess im bad at maps because I thought I was on a longer trail but is was only about 2.5 miles. Not anything special to see but the trail was easy and it had a bunch of small up and down hills so it was great for running, it also allowed my dog even though the trail is right off of a college campus so it was great.

I'm a trail runner and have tried many of the trails in Chattanooga- this is one of my new favorites! If you're looking for some sort of feature to see this won't be a good option- but if you love trail running or biking this trail is a lot of fun and the most well marked I've ever seen.

My son and I really enjoy these trails. Everything is so well marked and has a variety of difficulty, from easy to quite difficult. It's all wooded and very rarely busy.

Very well-maintained trails with good up-and-down. I visit this system frequently and the best part about it is that it can be hiked (or mountain biked) directly after and probably during rain. The drainage is superb. Wildlife viewing is pretty common, the rock gardens at the top are great, and the system is pretty easy to follow. The only bad part about the trails is that most are designed for mountain biking (but are still very usable and enjoyable).

Nice well-maintained trails with some good climbs. Pretty decent views of Collegedale and Ooltewah, especially with the leaves down. Very popular with mountain bikers. Many cross-crossing trails that get confusing at times. Just behind Southern Adventist University.
