Hiked these trails today ( Sunday 3/19/17). Color coded maps available online. Cool morning but wet due to melting snow and recent snow/rain. Got here early so no issue with shooting noise from the gun club. Wish I had visited sooner especially since I live pretty close. Somewhat limited in distance but if you're looking for a nice hike with some historical significance this is a great spot. Family friendly, with nice wooded trails and wood bridges over streams. Sections can be muddy in wet weather so wear the right footwear. Water was flowing well so the streams were really nice. Observation tower at the beginning of the trail is cool. I did a total of 4.5 miles but I did some sections twice. A couple of short sections are close to private property/homes. I wish there was still access to the waterfall I've read about...

Well marked Trails. All covered with snow and ice today. Averaged 3mph even with the snow! Plenty of marshy areas that you'll want to have waterproof shoes for spring.

We hiked this trail in late October, but still enjoyed a beautiful foliage. We imagined this trail would be gorgeous in early spring and at peak leaf turning season.
The path is easy and relatively flat, although there are sections where you have to pay attention due to limbs and rocks. There is a lot of variation of foliage and scenery which kept it interesting and delightful. Would definitely do this again when where in the mood for a light afternoon walk.
Our bonus: when we arrived at the car, I almost missed that there was a frog hiding in the well of our rear tire! We scooched it along with a twig into safety. Check out the photo.
Love Fort Barton for the lookout at the beginning and beautiful sites to see within the trails. I spent almost 3 hours walking around to trying to find the waterfall.I finally ran into a man and asked him where I could find it, he unfortunately informed me that people bought the land a few years back and built houses on it so now it's closed off and private property): another thing I didn't like was hearing gun shots while walking. Overall, it's a beautiful place to get a decent hike in and the people you meet there are super friendly!
