Very dry and in good shape. Broken terrain so shade available at intervals.

AllTrails lists this as Pilot Knoll trail and some other trail maps do as well, but the signage calls it Hickory Creek Trail. Roughly 4 mile out and back starting at the tunnel under Village Parkway.

Nice easy trail. Muddy at first but once you get past that it was fine.

WalkingBugsFloodedMuddyWashed out

The trails themselves are very good. Easy enough for practically anyone to go out there. But there are A LOT of ticks in the woods, so be careful & be sure to check yourselves and any animals you bring out there. In the early mornings, you can see deer & hear coyotes. When it rains heavy part of the trail gets flooded and super muddy, but there are some side trails to take around it. Some people let their dogs poop on the trails & don’t pick it up, so watch out for that. Great easy trail, but the ticks make me not want to walk my dog on them anymore. :/

Good trail. Well marked! Needs some trash cleanup, however.

Love the varied landscapes as the trail winds around and generally follows Hickory Creek. Not much change in elevation, but with a good pace, you’re sure to break a sweat. Despite 10+ cars in the parking lot, only encountered 3 others on the trail. Highly recommended!

HikingGreat!

It’s a nice shaded trail. Just walked one mile and came back to the Altom bridge. Wide in some places and narrow in others. A little too much sand for my liking. Harder to walk in some areas.

It was a good trail! Wish it were a bit more clearly marked from the road. But we parked in front of the gates and walked to the trail which was to the left. It was a nice trial! Sad about the trash everywhere but we enjoyed it!

Very easy trail. Sometimes is a little overgrown but not to bad. Best time is during a dry spell as this trail will get muddy for days after a rain. Graffiti is an issue at Old Alton Bridge and the tunnel under 2499 but goes away after some time and you get into the trail. Took about 2 hrs from Old Alton Bridge to Pilot Knoll campground entrance.

This trail becomes muddy after it rains and some parts are completely under water.
