Not bad hike. Very pretty in the winter. Trail is super easy to follow with cement mile markers.

Walked all sections of this trail and enjoy them all.Lots of wildlife to observe and it is well maintained.

Good little loop for an easy spin, great views of the lake!

fairly easy trail. a tad muddy after rain

Pretty confusing at some parts, but awesome hike nonetheless. Totally recommend!

Fun trail with some elevation change and interesting sections. Very quiet, I basically had the place to myself. Some very muddy areas right now (12/26/18) requiring some creative routes.

Not super scenic, but a nice afternoon hike. Very quiet this time of year (12/26). Some sections were seriously muddy, but all in all, it is nice and not too difficult. Just enough challenge to keep it interesting.

Favorite trail, only an hour or so from home. Cement mile markers the whole way. Would get dropped off at Jersey Hollow Rd. and run down to the Pyle and sit in the river, refreshing.

It’s a walk in the park where you can also enjoy The Frick Mansion. Great city park

An unpaved, mostly wooded walk, with a lot of up & downhills, but nothing difficult. Crossed over the 4.3 mile paved trail several times & walked on it for a few minutes, two separate times. Leashed dogs are permitted at Ridley Creek State Park. We came across some runners, walkers & dogs - just the usual suspects :) We didn’t see any horses & didn’t notice any horse hoof prints in the mud, so the yellow trail & the parts of the white trail we were on are mostly likely not used for horseback riding.

Took Ridley Creek white trail from loop #17 to yellow trail. A connector trail off of yellow trail to various trails in Tyler. Nice and quiet....not one other hiker for 2 hours...maybe because it was 22 degrees.

Nice quiet trail, but I had difficulty reconciling the maps and trail markers.

great surface...great views..we ran only 5 miles on it but enjoyed the run!

A nice and relaxing trail. It's scenic and close to town.

kayaking I love it for walking in the trail is ok.

Love this trail. Spots are muddy, some hills and part of the path you walk over lots of rocks. Lots of things to see, definitely not a boring trail. Love the view from Wolf Rocks. Spots can be a little overgrown with thorn bushes and some spots you have to walk through mud so wear good boots.

great view. we hiked up the stream and then some trails. little hills and a good workout.

Gravel trail, well marked, very minor elevation changed. It took 2.5 hrs with a short bathroom and lunch break.

This was a great trail! Trail markers were crystal clear. My only disappointment was I didn't see any waterfalls (pictured in the trail description). But I'll definitely be back.

Started nice for the first hour but the last two were boring as hell and made it feel like it lasted days.

I headed into the woods on Friday afternoon and noticed the silver blazes marking the trail. The trail is marked well enough for most of the way with only a couple tricky parts. Some of the turns can easily be skipped with the blazes (some having arrows pointing to turn) being a little on the smaller side. The trail itself is fairly easy with nothing too difficult. Elevation changes are frequent and but again, nothing too steep or difficult.

I went counterclockwise and skipped the Morrison Trail; only doing the Rimrock Trail Loop. I spread the trip over 3 days and 2 nights taking my leisurely time as I hiked. It was cold and wet the weekend I went where it rained all night both nights and the 2nd night it got down into the upper 20's. First night, I only hiked about 3 miles and set up camp just off the trail where an established fire ring sat. The 2nd night I stayed at the Morrison Campground. There are many campsites available there at the campground all complete with fire rings and picnic tables. Sunday morning, I woke up and finished the trail.

I would definitely recommend this trail to any hiker with any amount of experience or lack there of. It's a nice little trail with plenty of campsites to offer and lots of water and streams. There wasn't anything crazy as far as views either, but it was still very beautiful just being out in the woods.

Ran gate to 11 and the trails were perfect as technical trail can be. Be ready to do some climbing

Nice gentle hike. Some small rises. Friendly people along the way. Beware hunters blinds in the treeline.

Well marked easy to follow trails. Grabbed a map from the kiosk and did the blue loop. Trail was muddy in spots but with all the rain we've had this summer that was to be expected. The trail was a little overgrown on the singletrack heading up to the ridge but otherwise a pleasant walk with all intersections well marked. The map has the loop at 5.7 miles but the app recorded 6.6 miles. I deviated from the map for lunch at a campsite but that was no more than 100 ft.
