A great trail run! Pretty flat, beware with large groups, this is a mountain biking path first!

Fun trail, dogs on a leash but some people don’t follow that rule.

there are no hiking trails here. This is however a very lovely place to swim in the river or have a picnic. There are plenty of picnic benches and paved trails to them

Fun trail to run. The direction alternates every other day and is fun either way. Looking forward to hitting it on a Mtn. bike soon, too. Oh and my dog loves it. Under canopy so not too hot and the lake is right there to cool off in afterwards.

Great hike with lots of up/down winding, well-blazed trails... clearly marked which direction is biking & which direction is hiking. We went on a Saturday so lots of bikes to contend with. The gnats were not my favorite but beautiful views of the lake and secret alcoves with picnic spots and benches. There is plenty of parking and bathrooms available at trailhead. No parking fees required!

Great trail system. well marked. Lots of wildlife.

It’s great for trail running. Challenging ups and downs and the signs clearly mark where you are. There are short inner loop and longer outer loop options.

There is no trail here. Someone just recorded their walk around the campground. The campground is for campers only. The campground is great for camping though.

It’s not really a hike but it is a nice place for a picnic and to splash around in the water. There is a picnic shelter, restrooms, and a playground.

I have used this trail to trail run. it offers a fairly good challenge, with a good cross section of extended ups and extended downs and periods of flats. good workout. watch out for sections of exposed roots.

Other reviewers are right. It's not a "hike" at all. But it is a lovely little park with two playgrounds, a historic covered bridge, and a lovely river front scene perfect for midday relaxing, meditation, yoga, and maybe some splashing in warmer months.
It's likely to be packed in warm weather and evenings after school so keep that in mind if you're looking for quiet.

Fun 3 miles run

Just a park and a covered bridge.
Shouldn’t be called Pooles Mill Covered Bridge “Trail”. Should not have the word TRAIL in the title.

Nice MTB trail

The map for this trail is not accurate. We had to go cross country a couple of times to get back to the trail head. In addition, the millage is also incorrect. Instead of being 2.9 miles, we hiked 4.2 miles and would have been longer if we had not gone cross country.
Not much to see on this trail. In a few places one can see the lake but besides that it is just a trail through the woods shared by hikers and bikers.
I will not return here again.

This trail is a winding path through a wooded area. Opposing trail directions for bikers and pedestrians on alternating days. Check kiosk for your correct direction. I went on a weekday in September. I encountered 3 trail runners and 1 biker. I also saw a doe. Not a good trail to share with bikes on crowded days. Also, note that construction crews were working along Haw Creek / Power line easement. Nice, clean restrooms.

As the below poster said, this isn't a trail. It's a park with a river next to it.

I had an awesome time. It really put into perspective how out of shape I am. The uphills are well worth it, even though I thought my legs were going to fall off, and my body told me to stop and go home. It feels amazing after. The only downside to my outing was a front blowout, and not bringing a back up tube. Bring lots of water, and a good trail snack.

This is a park - not a hiking trail. As a park it is a nice place to bring the family - yes, even the dogs. But even for out of shape fat guys (like me) this doesn't count as a "hike"

There is about a 0.12 mile concrete walkway that leads from the parking lot to the bridge. If you want to designate this as an ADA trail then it fits. Beyond the bridge, its approximately a 100 feet walk to view the rocky shoals, The entire portion of the trail along Settendown Creek is approximately 280 feet in length. This creek side section is not for the physically impaired. The ground is uneven, root laden, and rocky. The views are spectacular though. I went on the weekend and it was crowded. Great area for photogs; hikers will be leaving wanting more.

This is a very picturesque area with a creek running over rocks and a covered bridge. Not a great place for walking unless you like repeatedly walking around a very short loop - took less than 5 minutes. Great place to take small children- they'll enjoy the water and the playground. I don't think I'd really classify this as a trail, though.

Nice trail. I went there with my kiddos and they loved it.

I should have brought a swim suit not hiking shoes.

pretty disappointed that there was no river or lake view . plain trail, it was nice but not at all as described! I uploaded a pic of the "river" .

A little tough to navigate, because hiking goes one way, biking another on alternate days. The 'loop' isn't really a big circle, and paths cross, so bring a map with you the first time. A little hilly, but still very good for a run.
