Just Delightful. Trail is well maintained with both dirt and gravel surfaces. Begins with a short half mile trek through woods which provides plenty of canopy from direct sunlight. After a short walk the woods open into a beautiful marsh with a 1.5 mile loop. A variety of wildlife including deer, Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Canadian Geese, and a variety of ducks and other birds are present. The outing was completed with a spectacular view of a Bald Eagle flyover! If you like natural beauty and scenic leisure strolls then this trail is ideal.

Nice, clean trail, but no where to sit and rest until the end.

Nice trail with lots of moderate elevation changes.

Wonderful hike! Very pretty. There are some steep inclines at some points. Shaded the entire hike.

Nice trail. Beautiful scenery, however it is not a 5 mile trail as stated in the app. It is a 1.3 it does connect with other trail but this particular trail is only 1.3. still very nice but just be aware if you are looking for something longer.

A really good park. Our first time here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We didnt walk the hole trail. It was a gorgeous day today after having temps with heat indexes over 100* and a lot of people were taking advantage of it. The foot bridge on the West side was closed. We would have liked to have been able to go that route but for our first time out, we have no complaints. The trails were well maintained and I made mention to my husband that I only saw 1 piece of trash during our whole trip. that makes for an enjoyable experience. Looking forward to another trip out that way to travel another trail !

Simply gorgeous. Especially in the fall and winter.

This trail provides one of the best payoffs in the Hocking region. Rockbridge is fantastic and might be the impressive geological feature in the area and it is well worth the hike.

Good workout. I hiked the A trail which was just about 4 miles on a Friday evening and it was great. It was a bit of a roller coaster kind of a trail which I suppose its great for all the mountain bikers, and believe me there were plenty of them on that evening. I believe I was passed seven times by riders. The trail shows plenty of signs of treadmarks just about everywhere, so be prepared to be on the lookout for bikes coming up behind you. After a while I was getting kind of annoyed by the constant up-and-down topography, but again this trail is better suited for riders more than walkers. Something I found problematic was many roots and rocks along the entire trail. I found myself having to very much concentrate on just what was a few steps ahead of me so as not to trip, instead of being able to look around and enjoy the scenery. All told, a good workout.

Well, it started out nicely enough through a pretty forested area with quite a bit of elevation change to keep things interesting along the Hemlock Trail and Fern Trails. Once we hit the Cemetery Ridge Trail, things got less interesting, the trail became more like an access road, and it stayed that way until we began our descent back to the parking area. This would be a 3.5-4 Star hike if you removed that portion f the cemetery ridge trail.

This is a very nice hike that provides a bit of elevation change, a nice little piece of pine forest, some interesting rock formations, and at least one nice summer view. Well worth the side trip if near the Hocking Hills region.

It's a well groomed, easy trail with beautiful views of the city and lake. Lots of birds and wildflowers make it an enjoyable walk.

Well maintained
Mostly woods, so good for an hot afternoon walk!
My 1st trail since l got this app!

Fantastic trail. The view at the top is unbeatable for Ohio. Trail is clearly marked the whole way up. I had my kids (as young as 4) with me and they did great. Not a really hard hike at all. Steeper parts are spread out.

very amazing. Real Prairie Grass.

Very nice hike. Super scenic and well cared for. I’m sure the mountain bikers have a blast given the fun ramps that are placed throughout the trail. We only had four bikers pass us during the hike- so it was pretty quiet. Only negative is having to walk along the highway a bit. That was a little nerve wracking because cars are zooming past. The other thing to watch for is the narrow muddy paths. I wouldn’t recommend hiking the path if it’s rained recently. You’ll want it to dry out a bit. Another thing to note: this trail is 6 miles. Not the 5 it claims to be. But I definitely recommend it!

Good trail

Love the scenery, animals and beach!

The K section closed and looked very overgrown on July 4, 2018, It was nice and shady on a very hot summer day. A good workout with lots of ups and downs. Very few people on the trails. Some families with small kids playing in the stream.

Cool trail in your backyard. Very well maintained trail. There is enough parking. Starts out with about a half mile gravel path, then goes to a flat dirt path, later there is some inclines and minor switch backs. It was a pleasant moderate hike. I did both loops in 2 hours including stops for pictures along the way. It was super hot which was nice, If you like that sort of thing. 2L of water was sufficient. A bit more bugs than some of the other trails I have been on, but nothing crazy. I liked the different aesthetics of the different sections of the trail, there is a small creek, a cool area with pine needles covering the ground, one overlook, and a cool little clearing under the tree canopy. Nice afternoon solo hike. Enjoy.

very nice park, clear uncrowded trails!

Had an Hour long driver to get to the trail, and it was worth it. It was slightly muddy but manageable. The hike was not very hard, and the views were great. We look forward to going back in the fall when the leaves are changing color.

Some great views, trail well marked with low foot traffic

Amazingly beautiful for an easy lovely hike. We almost skipped this one- don't, it was so beautiful especially on a 90+ day!

good workout, some switchbacks. couple steep inclines but consider it moderate hike.

This rim trail hike was very beautiful. After a rain, you need to be careful. There are signs and warnings indicating people have fallen to their death or serious bodily injury. On the day we went, it was two days after a rain and the ground was wet in many areas. We then hiked into the gorge which I thought was a little more beautiful.

Great trail for walking or running, my wife and I got to see a baby deer with her mother
