Great trail, my son loved the creek at the beginning of the trail. The trail was well marked throughout the entire way.

1st time out was Sunday. Loved it. Wish it were longer. Some really strong elevation gains which is great to improve your runs and stamina. Very quiet. Was out there early morning and ran into about 10 groups. Everyone very friendly. 3 or 4 dogs as well.

Can't wait to bring our pup. He's gonna love it

Great workout for me. The other hikers are very friendly, and the trails are challenging. The trails could be maintained a little better, but overall. A great place!

Beautiful views, great workout. What was challenging for me were the narrow, steep trail on west loop only because I was carrying my 18 month old on my back. Look forward to returning to complete east loop as well, but will definitely be more prepared with snacks, water, and hubby to carry our son.

Easy to follow and plenty of parking. This trail is also good for trail running.

Surprisingly pleasant trail. Good views, challenging terrain.

This was a really fun but strenuous. Deffently wouldn't recommend it for beginners

Very nice trail system. Tackling the West Loop is a nice challenge. Beautiful and peaceful scenery along the way. Great hike!!!!

It's a lot harder then you think. And definitely longer. Our fitbits said it was a little over 5miles starting and ending at the parking lot. Heart rate stays in the fat burning zone and it's has great views of in the forest. Next Time I will become well prepared by bringing extra water and snacks. Also people didn't keep their dog on a leash which was very frustrating for us who did keep our dog on the leash so keep that in mind. Overall I would do it again.

More challenging than I thought. West loop is awesome
