Trail is very very nice and heavily shaded. It’s a pretty long and somewhat difficult as far as hiking goes but not too bad. Would definitely seem to be better as a mountain biking trail

The trail was llooonnnggg. It had awesome elevation, bridges and water running through it. Make sure it hasn’t rained at all though. Even moisture from a slight rain fall make it very slick.

Nice walk can remain on gravel and sidewalk the entire way. So great for days where the ground is wet. Even surface one small creek crossing lined with creek stones for stepping across. Saw lots of birds and deer. Encountered 10-15 people on a 3 mile hike. A few access points to view the creek.

This was a great trail. There are several small stream crossings and two larger creek crossings. The inclines to and from these crossings can be muddy, especially if it has rained recently. It wasn't terribly crowded the day we went, which was a Sunday afternoon. The trail is narrow, and there are lots of rocks embedded in the trail, so you have to watch your step pretty carefully. There were lots of dog walkers too.

Great for a short hike when other trails are muddy - paved all the way.

Bernheim Forest is now open; you have to schedule a reservation on their website to be admitted. This trail was absolutely beautiful, especially since this morning was cool and there was very little sun.

Nice and shaded back on the trail. Didn't realize until after we hiked the trail that it advised against walking the trail when muddy;a apologizes to the park and public for missing that. Either way we tried to tread lightly and not leave a trace, other than our footprints. Beautiful day for a hike at The Parklands, but then every day in The Parklands is a beautiful day. Blessed to have this park right here in our back yard.

Beautiful trail. I've hiked this trail before but not right before or in the rain. It was so pretty to hear the rain roll into the woods. very refreshing for a mid-summer hike.

WEAR PANTS!!!!! Alot of the back part of this trail is narrow and your shins will get irritated as heck if you hike in shorts like I do. I was itching like crazy. Spider webs for days if you're the first on the trail! Some parts along the creek were narrow and made me nervous how easy it would be to misstep and fall into creek. Not a lot of difficult up and down hill wise but my GPS finished it at 9.1 miles.

Very nice, easy trail. Follow the Louisville Loop trail south from the community building and there is a sign for the trail after the creek crossing.

Went out early today to beat the heat. Only met 1 person on the way out and 3 on the way back. Trailhead parking is not obviously marked if you haven't been there before, but easy enough to figure out. The plan was to hike Black Squirrel, Screech Owl, Fossil, and Coyote. The first part of the trail is great descending down into the creek bed which you must cross. We've had a few days with no significant rain, so not much water in the creek to deal with. Made a note to come back after a good rain to see how things are. One we got onto the Fossil trail, the overgrowth was significant. A simple trim back (both at the ground as well as eye level ) would make this part of the trail so much better. Our entire time was shaded, so you won't get beat by the sun. Had the climb over a few fallen trees, but nothing too major. Would definitely hike this again.

Mix of trails and some road connections at Devou Park. Starting at Sleepy Hollow trail and looping around to Incinerator/Pigs Tail.

One of my favorites. Beautiful for a sunrise hike- there is an overlook to the left of the main trail near the end that is perfect for sunrise. Gates were open at 5:45 for 6:35 am sunrise. Has taken me between 35 and 50 minutes to hike to the top (moderately fit/active 21 year old) The trail seems to get busy around 9 am on Saturdays but you won’t see many others before then!

Was a nice easy hike to try out the new baby carrier on pretty flat and nice wide trail.
