An easy loop, a bit more people even during the weekdays. Be sure to go when the bluebelles are out, otherwise I think it might be boring.

An easy trail loop following the white trail. We went mid April and missed the bluebells. We only saw one sad plant on the entire trail. The trail is noisy from the gun club nearby. Watch your step! The trail was muddy in places as others mentioned, and also had horse droppings.

This was a great trail with my two young children (3 and 6 at the time) and our leashed German Shepherd. We went while the bluebells were in bloom and they were gorgeous. There was some flooding, as some of the trail is below the flood plain, but we got through it ok. It took some maneuvering and climbing over fallen trees to avoid the worst of the flooding, but nothing too crazy. Worth it for the scenery and flat terrain.

Very disappointing. The trailhead was not clearly marked. Apparently I was supposed to take the White Trail but it was not marked as the Bluebell trail. Then I saw a sign that said to follow the blue blazes. After about 10 minutes I realize that is not correct either. I had the Alltrails map up on my phone and could clearly see I was moving away from my intended trail.
After backtracking and trying to follow the Alltrails map in reverse (this was a loop trail so it didn't matter which direction around I went) I am told to follow the paved road for a bit then cut onto the trail, which I discover is indeed the White Trail. This 'trail' goes beside a discus golf area and a very noisy waterpark. Not what I'd hoped for a Sunday walk in the woods, and a far cry from the Conway Robinson trail I took lkast week, which was a real gem.

Love this trail for the bluebells. You have to come in early April to see them! It gets a little crowded during bluebell season but it's a fun short loop that isn't difficult at all. It gets muddy though. Outside of bluebell season it's a little less crowded and I still love to do it if I just need a quick walk outside with the dog.

Perfect trail to ride bikes or walk your dog. It follows the river bank so the views are good.
