I love this trail. I've been hiking it for a few years now. if you go by the side around the trailer park by the ravine, there are multiple broken glass bottles and a squatter camp set up. I hike in sandals and alot of people enjoy bringing their pups out here, just be extra careful.

Super easy hike. Fun to take our dog, but with there weren't so many people all of the time.

This is a really nice trail! We had a lot of fun hiking around and exploring. The trails and maps were nice. The only thing that made this a 4 star is that there were drug deals happening and many different homeless “homes” around many of the corner within the first mile.

Great trail and trail area. Just have to keep your map on you as trails go everywhere. We veered off a few times some purposely and some not. Great time together as a family.

First time here and it's rather nice. Came by in the evening after work and it's still really hot. There were a couple places where trees feel across the trail and the ponds are completely covered over with vegetation. Lots of us and downs ago it's a really good workout.

So convenient, right here in town. Beautiful forest trails. Use your GPS app, easy to get lost on intersecting trails.

We didn’t have a great experience. The trail was not marked well at all, and where it was marked we found the posts/signs were more times than not defaced from vandalism. We found ourselves on many offshoot trails unintentionally. We had hopes of this being a simple trail to follow but instead realized we needed to have our all trials map out at all times. We probably won’t be back. Also, there are homeless people hanging around but there were plenty of families hiking which made us feel a bit safer.

Great view at the top of the city. The trails are not marked at all and it’s easy to get lost if you aren’t constantly tracking your location via the all trails app. Good for an adventure but if you just like to follow a simple loop trail without having to think about it too much this trail is not for you.

The only reason I had 3 stars is that there are people camped out on the east side of the conservation area. Tents and laundry baskets of clothing. I only saw one tent but it made us pretty uncomfortable. Other than that the views were great and the trails are very well maintained!

First time here. ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!! My daughter and I plan to go here again and again. However, YOU NEED TO USE A MAP - especially if you are interested in exploring all the different trails like Nimbus Knob, Goldback trail, Deep Ravine Loop, etc. You'll understand once you're there. Some trails are well marked while others are not there anymore. We got lost a few times because offshoot trails are not marked and you're left second-guessing yourself since they all look similar. I couldn't get my mobile data to work at times on the trail either which made it so I couldn't rely on Google maps deep into the trail either. Overall though . . . I would actually HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hike!! I will most like print this trail map and have it with me just in case I can't get a signal again.

Trail needs maintenance. Lots of trees to climb over that have been there for a while. Extremely crowded at the trail head this directs you to... I would find a way to access from somewhere else. Lots of garbage. A few homeless encampments. Took at least 25 minutes to hike in far enough to stop hearing the crappy music blasting from the car dealership. It got better the farther in we hiked, but I won’t be returning.

I love this trail system because it’s easy to get lost, find some really cool nooks, outcrops, and trees, pick up some trash, then find a trail and make your way back. But to dog owners: I often see little baggies filled with dog business and it occurred to me that one could bring a small hand shovel, bury the business, thus alleviating the need, but lack of interest, to carry the bag all the way back to the car.

I really enjoyed this trail. Everything about the hike was fantastic! It was all very clean. The wild life seem to be very happy and mind there own business. There is a nice Park at the Appleway Blvd entrance. The terrain is partly flat partly hilly, with some rocky areas. The only downside to this trail is there are not a lot of directions once you're deep in the trail. I really recommend a map.
