I hike and/or run this trail often. Great when you don’t have time for a long trek. The hill is challenging and the creek is beautiful.

Nice trail, however stay away right now because they are deforesting sections of the trail because of a problem with emerald ash trees. There were no signs to let me know so I was walking through deep mud tracks from large vehicles and in front way off trail trying to get around all the down trees in the way. It was a hassle and very unpleasant. I'm not sure when it will be completed (I hiked this on March 6, 2018).

I am on the fence about rating this trail a 5. Wish we could give half points. This amazing 2.25 mile trail takes you through everything you want. Its a loop, flats overlooking the babbling creek. One steep section with ~100 feet of elevation that plateaus to allow you to stretch out. A picnic table about a third of the way right where you want it. Only reason why not a five is because there isn’t a vista panoramic view to top it off. Sorry Hawk Mountain has set a high standard. Visited the trail in February and am going to return during every season. Was able to hike the trail in just over an hour with a group of 12 including young Cub Scouts.

I love this path along the creek. This trail is hilly so I recommend bringing water with you. This is one of my favorite hikes but be prepared for the steep hill.

Great short hike - some water, only minor elevation / a few ducks - great way to spend a little time connecting to the earth.

This is our go-to trail when we need to get out of the City. We've hiked it countless times in all sorts of weather. It's a gem!

Probably my favorite trail at RCSP, not well traveled since the trailhead is accessible only via Gradyville Road. The lower part follows Ridley Creek and is very scenic. I hiked clockwise around the loop and finished in under 40 minutes, including taking photos. Upper portion is hilly but manageable. I wore heavy goretex hikers and hiked on wet leaves. Hiking poles for us balanced challenged folks are recommended.

Nice moderate trail which is peaceful and quite. Lower section goes by the river and upper part is up on the hill next to it.

Pretty quick loop missing many of the bigger hills in the park

This is a great loop through a lot of Ridley Creek State Park. There is one spot around where the blue and the white trails meet where the lines on the map didn't jive with reality, but it was easily remedied.
