Very nice all paved trail. Parking is close to playground and trail access. I wish it was longer but still very nice walk. If I come back again I will plan to do the loop at least twice.

Great trails. Loved hiking with the elk! Holy and great elevation! Will definitely do again!

Easy, semi-paved. There’s a fair amount of people since it’s in a metropolitan area.

Easy hike with the kids.

Today was a super nice day! The trails had a decent amount of people including kids and animals, but that was okay with me.

It’s the perfect place to go with your family. It’s safe and co clean. You can get your coffee or ice cream then you can stop by there to spend valuable time. It’s also amazing place to walk/hiking/jogging and so on.

I took my dog with me who was very startled by sounds that I believe may have been gun shots- I’m assuming there’s a range nearby. This may not be a good fit for dogs with anxiety. Scenic and challenging! But currently very muddy

We did a great morning hike with the dogs today. The trail was rather icy, but we survived, and we will definitely do it again. Beware of cardiac hill. It is definitely a heart pumper.

Nice trail. It was 3.2 miles long per the Garmin GPS. Trail was very muddy and slippery in spots. Did not see any elk on the trail this time, but have in the past.

Simple paved walking trail around a park with some workout stations along the way.

A little icy and muddy today but not terrible. Nice hike overall.

I echo the report of a muddy trail. Melting snow and recent rain. Starting to wash out. was probably nice when it was new. I wouldn't drive far to visit it, but since I was nearby with my running shoes...

Beautiful trail. We were even to see a clydesdale and a pony, which I had no idea were at that park! The trail outlines on the app was a little weird. But it's a city park no need to follow the trail. You can go wherever which way you want without getting lost. I grew up near this park and love it still!

Didn't finish because the little dog got tired. had to cut through. But as always beautiful trail

Quick little hike. Very muddy. I suggest coming when the ground is very dry or very frozen.

Beautiful trail ! A little wet but doable with appropriate shoes.

pretty crowded, pretty muddy at parts. not paved. small pea sized gravel. I didnt see any Elk on my run. but all in all not a bad trail despite some of the steep hills.

paved trail. can get crowded at times. they are making it longer though. I ran the part from Orlando's to where it ended (at the recycling plant).

not a bad trail. some muddy parts. some hills. but it is paved.

there are 2 trails at Cliff Cave, I think this is the newer one? which isn't flooded. it is a great trail. there are hills, but it is paved and when I ran it in December 2019 I saw maybe 10-12 deer so close!! it is a new, beautiful trail. there is an overlook of the river you can stop at over the bluffs. one of my favorite trails!!
