Loved this hike. Trail was easy to maneuver and the variation in inclines was enjoyable. I don’t really understand people complaining about bugs and burrs - you are in the woods for goodness sake!! Bring bug spray next time. My dogs loved this walk and enjoyed a quick soak in the creek as we were coming to the end. Would definitely hike this again.

Would rate as an easy trail. Trail is narrow at times and mostly flat. Did not see anyone else on the trail.

Much of this trail was grass or dirt. It was shaded by trees in parts, and then other parts had full sun. The trail also came out in to a corn field. I felt some of the inclines were too steep to be fun. There were also constant flying bugs everywhere we went. Gnats, flies, no-see-ums, midgees... tons of 'em. They'd get right up in my face and buzz near my ears. But the worst was that we took our two dogs & had to stop numerous times to yank burrs off of them. They didn't seem to like that too much.

Made it from the Pretzel Hut to Eagles Rock. Nice hike. Saw wildlife along the way.

nice trail. would label it as easy not moderate.

Easy trail to explore. Directions take you right to the parking area. A lot of wildflowers are out now. Wear shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy. There are some hills with gradual inclines. Nothing too steep.

This was a great trail for a “quick” workout and relaxing walk. Several steep inclines that were heart pumping, but nothing too crazy. It was a little rocky and rooty, but again, nothing too crazy. We went in mid-late April and it was abundant with beautiful little wildflowers. I definitely recommend!

Next part of the trail done. This section was from 501 to Seglock Road. We got to see Cannon Hill. Saw a man on a horse, other hikers and joggers as well. Pretty decent hike. Spring vegetation all over the place!

I did the first loop heading counter-clockwise. It's a nice moderate trail with a pretty good climb. But once I got to the gravel road (about 2 miles in) it's much less exciting. I never made it to the second loop.

I did come across a coyote in a clearing, watching me on the gravel trail.

The last mile back to the parking area is along a paved township road, this was a disappointment. But the first part was nice.

Lovely, well marked trail.

Most of this trail is part of the horseshoe trail also. This part is clearly marked. It is nice to see a trail with no litter, unlike other nearby trails.

Poorly mapped, but a great adventure!!

Beautiful trail! I followed the blue trail up the rocks and then it stopped at Camp Mack territory. Will have to go back and just follow the yellow trail.

Came here on a slightly rainy and foggy day. First time in the trail. We did two miles between routes 501 and 322, past Eagle Rock. The trail was very well marked but pretty rocky at times. Small waterfalls along the way.

Great trail, but people living at North end at Newport Commons should be embarrassed. Do they just throw trash off their balconies? Trail is well maintained except for that section.

Twice around a wonderfully marked wooded trail. Twice around is just over 5 miles.

Great scenic trail, only qualm is spotty marking. tried to follow blue blazes but they abruptly stop and start like 3 different times. Fortunately there were 2 bikers on the trail with experience who told me how to get back to Horseshoe trail and how to detour to Eagle Rock. Make sure you find Eagle Rock. It's off Horseshoe trail, marked on the AllTrails map, but there's little signage for it on the trail.

I like this trail. There isn’t anything dramatic about it, but it has fun surprises along the way. Eagle Rock is a cool look out on a clear day, the small waterfalls are a pretty surprise, along with the great rock formations and informal petting zoo behind the Pretzel Hut. I think it’s appropriate for hiking, dogs, trail running, and kids.

Great trail. Only negative is that you have to cross a busy road to continue on the trail.

Great fall hike! Just the right amount of up and down

This trail is rated moderate due to elevation changes, however the trail itself is smooth and appropriate for trail running. There are minimal rocks and roots and the trail bed is easy to navigate. The bottom loop could be done without the upper loop for people looking for a shorter version. The bottom loop features the stream which is pretty and there are no real features or overlooks on the upper portion. I found a lot of great fungal specimens and things to catch my attention, but the scenery is primarily woods.

Great hiking trail! Also has some good geocaches on it!

Good walking trail, although I assume there would be more bike activity in the summer so might be harder for walkers. Trail goes through Camp Mack, which was a boy scout camp - hard to tell if it's still in use.

one of my faves. Good quick workout

If you start at the Pretzel House, go through red gate to reach trail. Steady, moderate uphill to Eagle Rock. Very nice, wooded trail, easily marked.
