Very good hike, the only thing is the trail is confusing once you get to hale farm, you have to turn left and go down the road. The trail is dangerous once you hit the road part so be careful.

Intense trail! Lots of hills and can be a bit muddy. Definently a workout. I started at the top of kendall hills and made my way down to the loop which is 3.15 miles. Tends to line the road a bit but the road isn't very busy. Recommend if you want a workout. Took me and my dog about an hour walking at a moderate pace. There is also a short cut to make it a bit shorter.

Nice workout - average views before you get to ledges. Which is pretty awesome. Overall - great distance and great hike

Just discovered this trail yesterday after work. This has to be one of the best kept secrets in the park. Very well maintained trail. Beautiful scenery. I loved taking a walk down the Hemlock ridge ravine. This is one of my new top 10 running trails. I will definitely be back with friends.

Perfect weather today for the start of Fall! Knocked out 5.2 miles in 1 hour 28 minutes hiking. Met an awesome couple on Hemlock Ridge. One of my Top 10 favorite trails in the area.

Good workout! Lots of great incline.

This one always kicks my butt! Several hills and steps in this one, so if you’re looking for a cardio intensive hike, this is for you. Heavily used by trail runners as well.

Directions on the app take you to the Kendall Lake parking lot. It’s a 0.5 mile hike on the Kendall Lake loop to get to the Salt Run trail head. I showed us walking just shy of 5 miles total. You could park at the Pine Hollow lot and more easily access this trail.
Thankfully there were trail maps at the parking lot as the initial signs don’t tell you which way to go towards the Salt Run trail.
Overall, a nice hike through the woods. Nothing spectacular to see. Trail goes close to the road so there is traffic noise. Coolest thing we saw was a big beaver at Kendall Lake.

A very easy and nice trail to hike on. It was nice and flat with no major hills. Great for running on. It was also quiet and desolate. Did not see any people on the trail and had a lot of options to go onto other trails. Highly recommend for an easy 2 mile hike that is peaceful and isolated.

Great hike! Connected Ledges, Lake, and Salt Run Trails for 9.5 miles. The Ledges trail had a lot of interesting geology!

Nice hike on a hot day—completely shaded. Lots of horses on the trail.

Nice trail. One hilly part but the rest is not too tough. Interesting mix of young forest types and habitats. Passes through some genuinely beautiful areas, but also some heavily impacted/recovering ones. The freeway and the railroad are rarely out of earshot.
