I love this trail. Run it regularly. Seen rattlesnakes twice. Wear insect repellent with deet during summer because of chiggers and ticks.

Hiked the yellow 1.9 trail, could hear traffic during the first part but then it faded out. Easy trail to walk, no inclines, didn't see anything except little lizards, the forest was so quiet, couldn't even hear birds chirping. A bit buggy so bring spray. Came across some water holes and the pond was nice. Good place to go if your looking for a quick hike in the area.

Nice little walking trail while I was camping and geocaching in the area several years ago.

Amazing hike did the whole thing even found a snake trying to eat some bird eggs

We chose this hike to get in a good 13 miles. Barely got 9 because of the impassable swamp at about mile 5. Disappointing. Started out great then got very muddy and became a mud puddle obstacle course which eventually lead to the swamp. It’d be nice if the trail was completely maintained with foot bridges like the first few miles. But alas it wasn’t and was disappointed.

good trail, if you do it on bike be prepared for some sand, its marked better than it used to be. map needs updated, from the trailhead using GPS I'm tracking the loop is 2.35 miles.

I enjoyed in the cold weather, i dont think i would ever hike this when its warm out or bug season. this section was very wet.

Not a bad trail just not great. Could hear traffic just about the whole time.

Great trail to run in the colder months after hunting season and spring.

nice trail through woods and high grass dancing in the wind. Pond area was pretty but I wouldn't swim in it Lol. dark water from wood debris. kids enjoyed. We threw a foot ball all the way along the trail back and forth

Nice trails! Only issue is all the dog poop on trails. Just be sure to watch where you put your foot.

Loved the trail and so did my 7 yo golden doodle. Little spooked that the sign said to wear bright orange!! I had to turn my coat inside out! Shouldn’t have mentioned that to my husband, now he doesn’t want me going back.

All flat, great for jogging. Only a few roots!!

Could not find the trail.

Easy trail for kids & dogs!

Fun trail for the bike, a little sandy in some spots, bigger kids with multi gear bikes should be ok.

Loud traffic most of the way, and ran into hunters so wear orange. Pine needles on the sand for easy running but a little overgrown in places.

Pretty easy, having a big circle to go in was nice vs a straight trail/having to turn around

Overall a nice nature walk. Some spots of the path are more loosly packed sand.

If the trails weren't sandy it would be better but other than that I liked it!

A nice easy loop trail, through a forest of tall pines and past several pretty lakes. This trail is about 30 minutes from my house so I walk here several times a year.

Great trail. Geocaches are well hidden and plentiful. Normally nice and quiet out. Good all year round.

Came out here for some geocaching, got all the caches and had a great hike. Used a two kid jogging stroller on the entire trail. Patsy Pond itself was almost dried up...
