Pilot Knoll / Hickory Creek is a really beautiful hike/bike path. If you like dragon flies you’ll love this trail. There are bunches! While most of the standard route is fairly stress-free to navigate, there are portions that will prove challenging. Steep uphill climbs, rocky terrain, and some spots with deep ruts from weathering, run-off and mountain bikes makes the roughly 6-mile in-and-out course less-than-routine. It’s no walk in the park. Add heat and humidity like today and it’s a good work-out and far from easy... A word of caution: the underpass was almost unnavigable - even a week or so after a rain event, the mud was so deep and so heavy it was almost impossible to get through. Take the path that leads up and over instead of crossing if you see mud...

Started out from the trailhead at Old Alton Road. There was only one little piece far in that was muddy, mostly easily walked around. However, the underpass was flooded and marked the end of my hike.

Best easy access "green tunnel" trail for running, hiking or in horse near Denton. No need to enter the park, there's free parking outside or early mornings. Major complaint: April 2017 the tunnel under the village parkway was flooded side to side so on horse or bike you might be okay but my run was not the 4-5 planned. A few nice little spurs down to the lake and hard to get lost!

Plenty of shade, clean trails and trail markings were easy enough to read.
We will definitely be coming back
