Nice easy short hike! We usually go to Livingston to camp, but that may change since the hiking is better here.

Great Trail! Paths are pretty clear and the views are rewarding halfway through the loop. Very peaceful and quiet. The trails have a lot of tree roots and sand along them. A plus for good trail footwork to advance the hike a bit and yet still easy on the knees for us persons of size! LOL Will be back again!

We just did the Prairie Branch Loop, the circular part of the trail which is 1.5 mi. It was me and my wife, our 7 yr old and 4 yr old, it was a great little hike. My 4 yr old ended up riding on my shoulders most of the time but our 7 yr old made the whole loop no problem. Was a great park and an enjoyable day trip. Odds are we'll be back again!

The 3.3 miles is actually two trails. Prairie Branch is 1.5 miles and Dogwood Trail is 1.8 for a total of 3.3. My fiancé and I did the whole 3.3 and it was great. Trail was in excellent condition and there was plenty of wildlife to see. Would definitely recommend.
