It is a nice spot! But be aware that this is a privately owned land and there are lot of non-marked trails. It can get confusing if you weren’t careful. I tried to follow the trail traced by AllTrails but it got confusing sometimes when there are two or more trails split off and none were shown on the map. Somebody mentioned in the comments that they followed power lines when they got lost, I did that too.

this is a nice hike, but bring your compass, with so many trails it is easy to get turned around.

The trails were fun the dogs loved the hike ! Slept on the way home too ! My friend and I did get lost and the trail head isn’t very obvious. We ended up hiking in an area that was closed ! And had no idea till we were already too far . Ended up walking along the power lines to get out ! So FYI keep the app open to see the trails ! Overall fun and we saw zero people on the trail.

Love this lil secret gem. So close to my house and the trails are easy and flat! Nice place to just let the pups run and be outside! :)

This place is awesome. We were alone in the forest with our poochies, and it was great. Moving back from 8 years in Montana was an unexpected culture shock. I miss being able to enjoy nature at any moment, and do so without being surrounded by people and the dogs are used to not being stuck on leashes, so this was bliss for us. Will definitely be back.

Enjoyable hike through the rustic woods today. This place has several trails to enjoy, you could definitely get lost if you don't have a map download. Dog, kid and horse friendly. Great for all skill types. Looking forward to coming back.

Expansive. Peaceful. The power lines the only drawback.

This place is huge, you could hike 20+ miles and not use the same trail all day. every time I come here we take a new trail and it's completely different. We stuck to the wide trails the first time we came, now we venture, somewhat trying to get lost in the maze of trails. Dog's can be off leash as long as they are in your control which is awesomel. A lot of horses use these trails, too. We saw a coyote chasing a baby dear last we were here in late June so keep your little dogs close!
