Nice trail, some good hills and rocky at the beginning, flatter and more open towards the end. Muddy in spots and one small stream to cross )there is a ladder bridge to get across.

Disappointing. Made it about halfway to the turnaround point and it was flat and overgrown. Wear pants if you do this trail. on the way back we took a detour on the bike trails and they were much better. Skip this one and do the MADD shelter trails down the road. MUCH better trails, just with a lot of bikes

Seems more for horses and cyclists. One cyclist says One Way but not sure where that starts. Beautiful trees area but view of lake is obstructed by tall marsh. Quickly got too hot in full sun 11:30 am.

Great trail. Some soggy bottom areas due to recent rain but all in all I give it a thumbs up.

Went today with the fam. Last time we came was flooded big time. Trail shows a lot of evidence of flood retreat. Nobody else was on it...at all. Had a great time and a decent hike in, so was a win for sure! Will throw this one into our go to list.
