Nice easy hike...not strenuous at all except for walking in a bit of snow. Won't be going back till the temps are sub freezing and more snow.....EXTREMELY muddy.

Great trail. Very short and is a boardwalk style path. The initial entrance are stairs that are a little steep.

My lazy three year old and active five year old enjoyed it. Nice gravel path, which makes it ideal for soggier days. And very clean bathrooms!

Good walk to get the kids out and burn some energy. Cold day today and snowing (26 degrees). Trail was icy and slippery in some spots. Beautiful trail.

Nice and easy, little ice, lightly packed snow today. pretty much as exciting as you'll find in the area. Did it as an out back in under 5 hours.

Great Hike. Lots of ups and downs.

Nice relaxing stroll with neat river access points.

If you are into history then you may find some value in this place as it has little boards to read through out the trail about the battles. It’s a neat little trail but it takes about 30 minutes to complete and isn’t a great place to “hike” (if that’s what you’re looking for.) Other than that, this a nice place to walk the dog and not much else.

Overall it is a very average trail. Takes less than an hour to complete the whole thing and the scenery is pretty subpar. It has a decent pond that has ducks to look at if you’re into animal watching. The best part of it is the Maumee river. Walking next to that and being able to check that out is the one major positive of this place, other than that it is basically a nice trail to check out if you’re looking to get out of the house and get a little bit of exercise

Hidden gem for workouts. Very hilly. Workout stations. One decent view of the river.

This trail isn't great but it's our best option in the area for preparing for future hiking trips.

The trail is overall smooth, run it many times and I have run a race on it. No hills. But you do see the whole park, and this is the best park in the area.

You may see deer and wild turkey. Most of the parks in Toledo you can hand feed the deer, out here the deer actually run away from you.

A good metropark for in the city. Cool bridge, paved, and dirt trails options.

But you are in the city and there been crime here also, even somebody stabbed. I tell my wife and mom only to go here mid day.

If you are history buff then you will like it, otherwise nothing too special and the trail is near the highway (hear and see cars).

Local here...it's a paved path. This is a hiking website right? Why such the high ranking? No good views, have to cross roads all the time, again it's paved, and if it's windy it not a good option. I don't even know of local runner who use the path. I guess a good option for biking but also dangerous if all the road crossings.

Here my problem, it's a Toledo area 5 star but compared to other places it's just ok.

I run here all the time as I live close. Great views of the maumee river as you run along the river. Also a nice little pond. Across the river you can see fort meigs.

Deer everywhere and they don't have fear of people. I have also seen wild turkeys here also but not normal.

I wouldn't call this hiking trail as local runners do workouts (intervals) on the trail.

Other side of the park has interesting canals and red trail is also good option for running.

Love this trail! It's a great mix of uphill climbing and more moderate walking. The rocky cliffs and Turtlehead Cave are very scenic.

Best done in hiking boots. The trail can be rough and muddy.

Beautiful hike!

Really nice trail! Great views of the reservoir right next to it and was empty. Took the eagle trail to get a little closer to the lake and the Maple Highlands trail back. Very nice hike.

short easy but pretty

Absolutely amazing trail system if you run just this trail or connecting trail at airport.

Great trail! Love to do tempo runs on it when I'm in town.

Really pretty trail. A few hills to warm you up in the winter but plenty of flat sections to enjoy as well. If you clockwise, the last third is within hearing distance of the road but still an excellent hike.

An incredibly beautiful walk through the gorge and on the rim. It is busy from the park office to the old mans cave then all the non-hikers turn back. Once you are past the old man’s cave the number of hikers decreases immensely. It’s a beautiful, peaceful walk that has only a few moderate areas of hiking. I will definitely be back.

the trails weren't the most exciting or the best marked, but it was a fun place to explore and get about 3 miles in.

I actually loved this trail. I highly recommend trail L18, once you cross over into the sanctuary. It takes you right up to the creek and an altogether beautiful section of the stream. There were about 10 dogs that I came up on. All off their leash. None were aggressive but it still changes your focus to a defensive posture and away from your run.

Was pretty nice even in the winter, would love to check it out when things are green and the ground is dryer.
