easy trail through the woods; mostly on a wide stone / dirt road; not that challenging other than avoiding horse droppings; nice but not awesome

Nice flat trail - good for calm or for speed work. Not anything particularly memorable. Only one on the trail on a Wednesday morning.

It is a well shaded trail with minor hills. Saw a black snake.

Nice long loop with lots of creature sightings! We saw deer, frogs, and a little snake on our hike. Mostly pretty flat, would do well for bikes or horses but we just walked. There is a beautiful pond.

Decent enough hiking trail and not challenging, though it was over six miles. Mostly very quiet and would be really great for biking. Pulled a Lone Star tick off my son after we got home so that wasn’t fun. Saw some horses, which we were hoping for. The cemetery was nice to stop and explore.

Very nice park. the trails are ideal for horses, so hiking is a breeze. I don't think this should be a moderate, it is definitely easy. Very clear signage and wide, well maintained trails through mostly pine and some hardwood forest.

We ended up walking 7 miles in about 2 h 20 minutes. We did explore some of the offshoots off of the trail. Only a few muddy spots. We did cross the stream at the dam to get to the other side. Less heavily traveled than the other side of the park. Saw bicyclists, horses, and runners. Great way to get outside with enough elevation at times to get the heart rate up.

This is a great biking or running trail. This should be rated as an easy hike but it was nice for what it’s worth, a leisure hike.
