Did anyone mention that your feet will really be sore after walking over stones and roots for 7 miles? It would be really helpful to have some markings besides a splash of yellow paint on the occasional tree. How about some markings that tell you how many more miles till the end? More directional markers would make this a better hike. What is the difference between the upper and the lower loop?

This trail is quiet and peaceful. Narrow at times, but there we passed only a handful of other pairs and families along the way on Memorial Day morning. While there are some scenic overlooks at the trail head, there aren’t any along the trail. It’s very shady.

The trail is moderate, elevation gets your blood moving and the shade give relief from a hot sun. Both narrow and wide trail area with rocky terrain that may be slippery in rain. A nice quick trail for an escape in the woods.

This trail has a lot of ascending and descending parts to it. It’s very rock with some tight spots outside of maybe working a little harder this is a great trail.

The hill was bigger than expected, but good! I think the hill puts it on the moderate side of easy.

I would have given 5 stars if you didn’t have to do part of the trail on the route. Besides that I recommend this, it was pretty easy and the trails are well kept.

Rocky and feels like you're going uphill most of the time. For such a short hike it's a nice little workout. Great scenic view spots. Crowded on a weekend since many people drive up just for the views.

Great trail, seems to be well maintained. Nice views of the river for a bit and good amounts of shade. Not too much elevation if at all.

A great trail for the kids. Very flat, mostly dry, lots of shade, and the cows at the end were a treat! Be careful following the All Trails map. It differs from the blue-blazed park service trail.

Great little hike combined with the green trail from the nature center. Great for kids with only a little elevation change and fun rocks along the way.

I’d say this trail is on the easy end of moderate, however not one of my favorite trails. I didn’t find it particularly beautiful. Maybe one or 2 spots and I’m sure when the ferns open fully it will add to the beauty but for 8 miles a lot of which follows a road that gets regular traffic doesn’t do it for me. I like to feel like I’m in the middle of nowhere and I didn’t feel this way on the lower yellow trail and didn’t feel this way much on the upper yellow trail. It’s also very rocky, but we did it with a kid on our back so it’s doable, but watch your footing.

Trail wasn’t easily marked.

Super cute and fairly easy trail. However, if it rained the day before then expect loads of slippery mud to walk through.

Long trail which didn’t have a particular destination so it was kind of boring in a sense. First bit of trail hugs the side of the road which made it feel like weren’t really hiking.

nice relaxing hike with good amount of elevation and options to choose longer or shorter loops.

A nice little hike - pretty flat, lots of shade, a spot with easy river access for the dogs. I can imagine bugs are bad during the summer, but in April, it wasn’t a problem.
