Pretty nice trails for walking dogs and getting a little bit of off road walking in. They aren't terribly long trails but you can loop them a few times. It does get fairly busy at times. It's always clean.

The outer loop was a little muddy this morning after some rain, with some confusion on trail markings on the north end. Nice variety with some elevation change

I had a great time walking the trails with my dog! I can't wait to go back and run :)

Very nice! We'll definitely do it again. We stayed on the paved trail this time, but next time we'll venture out onto the unpacked ones.

Very nice mix of trails with the main (roughly 2.5 mile) outer loop being a paved path with lanes. Several dirt trails run off and around the loop as well as some other offshoot paved areas. Some mild and rolling inclines, but nothing too difficult.

Overall, it's a scenic and well maintained set of trails on a nature preserve with plenty of birds. Will definitely return when in the area.

walked​ this trail mid morning during the week. parking lot was busy but the trail was not to bad. Took both of my dogs who enjoyed the trail. good trail for beginners, not much incline and many shaded areas. beautiful views and very quiet.

The bike trail was good, not too challenging but had plenty of elements to keep the heart pumping. I went on some of the other trails (which apparently you aren't supposed to venture to) and they offered more space and climbs. There was a nice water crossing next to the bridge that I kinda made up myself too. Overall a great ride and good fun.
