Nicely worn trail with beautiful views, several different bridges, creeks, benches along the way if you need to rest, and not overly crowded. I only passed 3 people during my walk (on a Sunday afternoon). I wouldn't necessary rate this as "easy" because when I think of easy trails, I think of ones that older/elderly people can walk, or those who are beginners. There were several parts throughout the trail with pretty steep inclines and declines that an older person, or a beginner might have to over exert themselves. However, if you take your time, and go when the weather isn't too warm, it's not that bad of a walk.

Beautiful trails right in my own backyard

I had a great time on the green trail. I was able to do it twice to get the miles I desired. Shared trailer with bikes, very friendly people.

The bridge has been fixed! Its a great place for running. The trail is thick mulch so it never gets muddy and its low impact.

Trails are not clearly marked but overall some good scenery and the long bridges are pretty neat

More for the biking folk. Had to pull my dog over numerous times to not get run over, but it's nice wooded trail.

Pretty easy trail and can complete pretty quickly. Has some pretty streams that are all orange from not sure clay or slate.

I went during probably the ugliest time of the year. Wet and muddy and gloomy. Still had a pretty good time. They allow you to climb the fire tower and they have a four-way intersection bridge along the trails that was pretty neat.

Nice long stroll in the fall around the woods, frisbee golf course and the rest of the facilities at Panther Creek. The Bridge boxes and lookout steel tower are fun.
