Nothing spectacular when you reach the top. Moderately shaded, but still pretty hot in a late July afternoon. Would be good early morning, Some good hills, and a great trail run, even still there are other trails that have something better than a campground to hike to.

Beautiful, short but lots of green and water. Perfect for dogs!

We did this trail with our mountain bikes. Biking it I give it 4 STARS for the quality. But overall it’s three stars because it’s really short and quick for biking. 45 minutes there and back.

Hiking it, is nice, there is one steep hill to climb and that’s it. But nothing satisfying once you reach the top as it’s just a campground.
Do recommend for horseback or biking if you need something quick yet moderate exercise for your legs.

From out of town. Definitely not as spectacular as Millcreek for trail running but it was very pleasant and I had a good time.
Lots of equestrian and mountain biking going on. Everyone was thoughtful and respectful of yielding procedures.

beautiful shaded hike, i would rate this one as easy, but it was a good length, and the little stream alongside the trail is nice.

A beautiful forested trail. Not very difficult, but sometimes narrow. Follows a stream and has benches periodically. Didn’t go the whole distance just due to time, but will be back for some trail running. No litter. :) Let’s keep it that way.
