Not bad. Not sure I would rate as “ hard “ though. Very muddy this time of year so bring a change of shoes !

Decent overall, but trail could use some maintenance. Also, I went today (March 12, 2018) and two significant portions of the trail were completely underwater.
Two stretches are along roads, one of which is quite busy.
Some nice secluded stretches and a pleasant stroll through Pioneer Village.

Lovely. Muddy today but we only saw one person in five miles. Perfect for the dogs. Several stream crossings. Some good hills. Not for when the knees hurt.

Beautiful, awesome trail !!!

Mostly hardwoods forest lots of small streams with some lake views.

Really nice trail. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do all of it due to all the flooding. I would recommend waiting if it’s been raining a lot during the week or checking the water level before you go. Because, a lot of the trail is right next to the lake.

My first time there today,loved it,even though I had to cut my hike short due to pouring rain.

Beautiful sandstone carvings dating back to the 1700s. Peaceful and very little traffic. Loved it!

Good distance. Nice change in elevation. Trails a bit muddy after recent rains. Our loop was 8.5 total miles.

A nice mid morning hike. Not too long and has some hills. I did not see anyone else on the trail.

Very fun hike! My wife, 10-year old daughter and I really enjoyed the varied elevations and beautiful views of the river. I would say the hike was really more of a moderate level, but a great time nonetheless.

Just hiked the loop today. One needs to cross creeks/runs about 5 times, which can be a challenge during winter months and wet seasons when the ground is muddy. Portions of the trails are muddy and slippery. The trails have many up/down hills and is a good exercise in that sense. Overall, the trail can be maintained/designed better.

Awesome trail even during winter months, with friendly hikers and mountain bikers. A couple of well placed picnic tables to grab a snack. Probably moderate in difficulty.

Just got done. Very few people and wet but I expected so.

Slippery and slow but very technical for running.

My go-to park!

just did the hike. I didnt see a single person on the trail and I loved hiking across the frozen creeks and over the hills.

Nice little trail through bits of forest, around a small lake, and areas of wild bird-friendly tall grass.

There are six other trails around this small park, as well as three horse trails. There are a few nice campsites to rent here, too, and a shelter for people to have family reunions/bbqs, etc.

good in the winter but avoid after rain because of mud from horses. Not moderate trail. It's easy.

loved this trail

While I really enjoyed this hike, Moderate in not how I would describe it. It is really hard, I thought, and with the leaves and tree nuts on the ground, it was like walking on ball bearings. I found myself on my behind more than once. But it really was beautiful for a late November day, we saw 5 deer, a couple of woodpeckers and piles of squirrels. And our dog had a blast.

I love to walk my dog here. It's very close to my house!

This trail had a lot of hills so it was a great workout. There are multiple areas that crossed creeks which was nice that our dogs could cool off and get a drink.

Completed the north and south loop in 4 days total. 40+ Miles all together. There is a lot of discrepancies between maps and mileage markers from camp to camp. Doing this is 4 days kicked our butts. Loved the challenge but 5-6 days would make the trip a little more enjoyable and less painful by the end. Definitely don’t attempt to complete in 4 days if you aren’t in decent shape. Just as the paper at the trailhead says, you will know just how in shape you are just a few hours into your hike. Beautiful views at all of the peaks, would definitely recommend.

Love this trail hiked it a few times, can get muddy during the wet seasons.

I wouldn't call it easy! Definitely has some good hills!

Great trail, kinda reminded me of the Burr Oak Backpack Trail but half the distance, lots of views of the lake, a little sketchy hiking along route 73 and on the bridge, the whole trail was challenging yet fun due to the week of on and off rain prior and a layer of leaves which then turned it into a "slip n slide", all in all I enjoyed it and will return

A very nice, peaceful trail, especially in the fall. A great supplement to camping in Dillon State Park.

This park is beautiful with well maintained trails. There are numerous trail combos available so you can make your own way. I hiked around 7.5 miles total, starting and ending at the Strawberry picnic area. The best part by far was the Hemlock trail, very beautiful and peaceful hike along a ravine. Fall colors were great too!
