Worth a trip. A little confusing at first when I started on a wildcat trail so I did the loop twice, then Montgomery Bell trail no signage issues, lots of rocks and roots. Ticks are out but to be expected and a few wet and muddy stretches. Came back to park entrance via Cheek Hollow. My two little dogs found plenty of water along the way. Overall nice day trip but quite a few road crossings . Moderate easy. Good shoes and some water and you are set for about 3 hrs

Very nice park and trail system. This recording is for the whole loop by doing both halves of the loop separately as a figure 8 and connecting all of the shorter loops and leads. The nature trail is a separate recording. The Wildcat loop is the better of the 2 opinion and has more to see. The East loop of the Montgomery bell trail starts off really nice along a stream but ends up tracing a golf course along an access road and that is a damper. The creech hollow trail concludes at ash lake and is very nice

In most areas this is a beautiful trail. Very shady with great views of the nearby creek and lakes. There were a few spots that were a bit overgrown and difficult to follow, especially one of the offshoots to The second shelter we came too. Be prepared for ticks too, we ended up having to pick off DOZENS of sesame sized ones after hiking. (Hiked early September so things may be better/worse at other times of year.) This trail is also a combination of other trails in the park so download the AllTrails app and check your location occasionally if you’re set on staying on this one!

Nice park and moderate hike! We hiked Wildcat to MB trail to Creech Hollow. We stopped and fished at Creech Hollow Lake then hiked another mile or so and set up camp at Woodland Shelter. Neat set up with the shelter. We hung our hammocks up in the rafters and stayed dry and warm. We hiked out past Woodhaven Lake where we fished some more before completing the loop from Spill Way trail to MB then Wildcat. We ate the buffet at the Inn there inside the park. Highly recommended trip!

My husband and I did the seven mile hike on a Thursday morning. The people were friendly and helpful. It’s not a busy trail at all. We saw some deer, frogs. and box turtles. There is a creek with pale blue butterflies everywhere, really cool. The surrounding city is nice and we ate at Tony’s burgers afterward. The food was great, I definitely recommend.
