A pretty decent trail system given the area. The Dark side loop can be difficult to navigate because it's not always clear which way to go, but if you don't mind exploring a little it pays off. It offers a nice challenge and will push the limits for newer riders. If you ride all the loops it's just under 7 miles. The newly redesigned roller coaster hill is a blast! Ride safe, guys!

Great trail for running. Very challenging. Yes...I can understand how it may be hard to figure out and somewhat confusing but just stay on the trail and it will take you from beginning to end.
MOST forks are labeled “More Difficult” or “Most Difficult”. The latter is an off-trail “loop” that will eventually drop you back off on the main trail.
If you run/hike/ride all the trail and loops you’re looking at a solid 7+ Miles. And that’s just on the Dark Side...more presently known as the Outback Loop now.
Again. Very challenging for any activity.

Just okay, nothing special.

It seems like a nice park for sports and playgrounds but the trails are just confusing. Nothing is clearly marked and it’s almost impossible to figure out what trails are for biking versus hiking. Easy to get lost and turned around.

Completed this hike at the end of March, very little greenery which is to be expected. I’d recommend going when it’s mid spring or early summer. If you are trying to complete the Dark Side Trail, be aware the trail markings are extremely confusing, with excessive fork in the roads and random turn offs. Definitely don’t think this trail is 7 miles long, more like 4.5.

I loved how beautiful this trail was but it’s extremely confusing if you’re only looking to do one trail and you’re going off the All Trails map. There are more than enough forks in the road and if you take the wrong one you’ll end up back at the same place which isn’t completely bad. It’s just a waste of time.
