No Dogs... The starting doesn’t say that nor does the listing... but the trail goes into Anadale which does not allow dogs.

The real issue is the people on the trail, usually the older retired type with nothing better to do then stop and harass you even when you’re trying to leave.

A very nice walk in the park. elevation gain is minimal.

Great hike lots of shade, easy to get turned around if you didn’t have this app to follow, many trail intersections, there is a nice pond and at the top of the ridge great views.

Nice hike with lots of beautiful scenery and a good amount of wild life  its a good hike if you want to get a good hike in for the whole day and feel it the next day. I enjoy going once a week!

a lovely walk if you need something easy going or want to do a talk-and-walk or jog. benches nearby, good for picnics!

one of my favorite easy going hikes. beautiful views in the fall overlooking Windsor.

good first 3.5 miles with a walk on asphalt for the last mile.

This was a wonderful trail for the whole family! We brought both kids, 9 and 3, with their bikes and we ran! The trail was nicely paved and easy for them to join!

Beautiful first 2 or 3 miles with nice views. Ended up walking the last mile or so on the road in the sun though.

pretty fun and easy hike.

Beautiful hike with lots of variety. About half was shaded, the other half exposed. Lots of wildlife including flogs and deer.

Great hike. Well maintained. Amazing to see the wildlife recovering after the fire. Everything was so green and lots of new growth. Highly recommended.

Beautiful trail, especially a few days after the rain with a strong stream in the creek. Other than a short stretch that was too steep for me to run up or down, moderate trail. Free parking on the street near trail head.

I noticed lots of 4+ star ratings on this trail but 3 stars on sugarloaf vista, just a few miles away. They aren’t really even comparable from a views and terrain diversity perspective. maybe it’s the mountain biker preference for this trail.

Great loop to run :)

We went in March on a cloudy day but the green rolling hills and trees made for lovely views. It was half exposed, half in dense tree cover. I loved that there were intermittent signs about the forest regrown after the fire.

It is a beautiful hike, but many bikes on the main trail. we got lost for a little bit because the rain has washed away some mud, and plants are thick. overall, it is a fun hike

Very easy trail with some great views along the way.

My go to route for an efficient, fun 5 miler. Always fun bombing down rough-go and getting in some good flat around the lake. Add 2 extra miles by taking a right at Orchard and coming back on Cobblestone to meet up with Rough-Go.

Wonderful easy trail!

A bit of an extra walk from Howarth Parking lot. Make time

Loved this for a quick training loop! Quiet, well maintained, very wide trails, and the rolling hills were great. Not to mention the view at the top! Will definitely be back here again

Very nice walk, I walk on the dirt outer trails. Great for dogs and bikes. I go almost everyday and it gets better every time.

We took a family day hike/ walk today. There are plenty of different trails to go on. Most are paved roads and some dirt trails off the beaten path. We went through the Howarth Park parking area and did the Spring Lake Loop in addition to a little section in Annadel Park. It’s really easy and you of course see a lake. Lots of people and bikes. So there is a lot of traffic. Lots of picnic areas. You could also bring your canoe or motor-less boat and paddle around the lake.

Very nice lightly moderate trail. Not many birds, but lots of bikes on this Saturday, but all well trained in trail etiquette. Very relaxing.

Nice hike. We did 4 mike loop, wasn't hard at all.

Always a good time coming down Spring Creek - look out for turkeys! Access the trail from Stonehedge Dr. as well, instead of Spring Lake.

Really gorgeous trail. Pretty secluded from other people.
