It was actually a pretty stellar and moderate trail. I will say that certain parts were certainly a bit overgrown but I had no problem telling where the trail was. I think those buts actually make it more fun. I do wish it had a rock scramble but there’s plenty of small obstacles (due to it also being a mountain biking bath) that it stays pretty fresh throughout. In addition I loved some of the bugs and flowers I had seen. Bring lots of water and be sure to snack adequately with electrolytes in mind. You’ll be sweating a ton due to the length and rigor. I would certainly do this trail again.

Short and unimpressive. Graffiti is sad.

This has been my go to loop for walking my dog for years now. It’s peaceful, has beautiful sights, clean. I do hate how crowded it can be at times, but that’s to be expected with a nice easy loop like this. You don’t have to do the whole 6 miles if you’re looking for something shorter, there are several spots to cross bridges in order to shorten the loop.

Well maintained trail and surrounding areas. Easy to follow. Good mix of sun and shade. Runs along a creek.

Trail is overall nice, but poor markings and noise from nearby roads keep it from being fantastic.

After not having run properly since high school 8 years ago (I’m now 26), this kicked my ass; having done the whole 6.4 mile loop and averaging 12:02/mile, even after completing a 72-hour fast, I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ll definitely feel it tomorrow, or definitely in two days, but this was solid for my first time here. Some of the loop is quite hilly, so be prepared for that if you’re planning a trail run or even just hiking it, as it can be quite steep. I’m sure there are ways to avoid this, but the loop that AllTrails provides gets pretty cumbersome at some point. The walks along the river and through the forest are really beautiful, with plenty of wildlife to spot that make their home in and near the water’s edge.

great trek

A very enjoyable walk, with a wide range of events happening throughout. (Walking, running, biking, fishing, picture taking, along with the fish hatchery and tee pee 's)

stone path hike most of the way. loved the walk along the stream.

Rockey, lots of roots and pedal grabs. Not the best ride for beginners, but with some experience this is an awesome trail.

good trail for some exercise gets the heart pumping

Great trails and mostly friendly people. Is there a map that shows distances between each loop?

The trail by the river was too overgrown to be worth it. We bushwacked out to the correctional institution and walked the road back to the powerlines to get back to the trails. There was an interesting structure at the base of the hill.
