Great trail system. It is a mountain bike trail and has been worn very smooth, with lots of hills. There are several interlocking trails that are color coded. A person can choose which trail and how much distance they desire. The trail is well marked, and at many points, tells you where to go to exit the trail, for a shorter or longer hike/bike. The longest part is 6-7 miles. But it could be made to be much longer if desired.
Great biking trail! Very smooth and well maintained with a good mix of climbs and quick downhills. Not technical or overly challenging, but a very fun and fast track.
If you are walking/running LOOK OUT! These trails are blind in the summer time with vegetation and a fast moving bike will pop up without warning
Great Trail! Only found 1 tick on me, none on dogs. Hikers go one way, bikers go the other, and all of the bikers were very friendly and considerate of the hikers! We hiked 5.5 miles today but you could probably get at least 7 miles without looping if you wanted to. There are wide trails and skinny trails, but all are very well maintained!
The Trail of Dreams is an amazing afternoon hike, or any time of day! It circles both Panther Creek Park and Panther Creek Park South. The trail consists of paved walkways, dirt trail, and boardwalk-style elevated paths. It makes for a excellent outdoor adventure, especially for children.
Officially it is listed at 3.98 miles, but my GPS indicates it as 3.11 miles. I am trying to upload this data to AllTrails.com, but it currently it is not working properly. I will attach it as soon as is possible.
