A fun easy & beautiful trail. It made for a great afternoon hike & picnic.
Well maintained with directions posted in the places you seem to need them.

Probably my favorite "in town" walk. short and easy, but pleasantly shaded throughout.

Did a two-mile loop with my Yorkie, my best friend, and her lab mix pup. absolutely beautiful. Well-maintained. You'll step around a lot of horse poop, but who cares. Nearly the entire hike was wooded and shaded. Great way to spend the afternoon!

Great trails for hiking with kids. A couple of hills but they are short. Knew that it was an active horse riding trail...kid loved seeing the horses and even got to say hi to a couple.

Beautiful, the only negative is way too much horse poop all over the trail.

Trails were good, but a bit hilly for beginner's. More of a moderate trail.

Pretty nice views, good for a short walk with a few side trails. Beware of the horse poop!

Very,very muddy in spots - great in other areas. Skirt the edge of the muddy spots and you'll be fine but watch out for lot's of stinging nettle. Lots of bugs coming out. The area is beautiful with lots of varieties of plants, trees and birds. I'll wait for it to dry out some before going back.

my new favorite park. Nice 1 mile loop and a nice easy walk. still quite muddy in some spots. busy on the weekends with horse riders who are very courteous. quite during the week. lots of wild flowers this time of year.

Very muddy in Spring but still so beautiful. Away from the hub bub. Enjoy the quiet, peaceful, Bird songs, or the babbling creek.

Historic Ghrist mill on the loop makes it interesting.

Easy hike on a pretty well maintained and easily navigable trail. it's is shared by lots of equestrians so you constantly have to walk around horse feces including in the parking lot even though a wheel barrow and shovel is provided for horse owners to clean their horse's mess. Old cobble/river rock foundation grist mill on trail. Would rate it more 4 star if it wasn't for the over abundance of horse feces.

A swell forest hike for being so close to suburbia. Quite a bit of mud even on a dry day, and a couple of inclines that might prove to be challenging for the less experienced or very young.

That being said, the trail is swamped with horse patties, given that it's open to equestrian usage. This isn't as bad on the side trails (Stone Mill Trail, for instance, was relatively clear) but the central/primary trail in the area (the North/South Connector) had a 'gift' every dozen yards or so. My wife and I wondered what these poor horses are being fed.

The signage, while definitely present, can be a tad misleading. This isn't a huge problem, but at a couple of junctions the arrows depicted on the signs were outright wrong. But still -- who doesn't enjoy being lost in the woods?

Issues aside, I'll definitely be back.
