Nice little trail with forested hills and creeks

Great trail...

I've ridden this trail for about 3 years now and I still find it challenging in some places. Nice tight turns...some good sized hills...a couple of creek crossings. It's a well maintained trail that never disappoints.

For a paved trail in the middle of a city it is quite pleasant. The trail follows along a creek through light woods and fields. It is quite accessable and includes a playground and exercise equipment, so something for everyone. Given the location visitors should expect high amounts of traffic.

Beautiful scenery. Beaver dam and natural spring. Path was pretty wet which slowed us down a bit.

Nice trail all the way around the lake

Very easy hike with just a couple of steep hills.

This is my favorite trail so far. Maybe because I live by it, but there’s SO many different trails you can take. Even when the park is crowded, you rarely pass people once you cross that tree line.

This is a combination trail which allows for a relatively easy walk on the graveled loop with lots of dirt trail side-excursions possible. I've photographed the lake across the road numerous times but this was my first jaunt on the trail itself and I will be back. It affords lovely views and a chance to see deep woods which would be hard to hike otherwise.

New additions to loop C has stretched the mountain bike trail out to an available 7 miles. Great addition. A bit sandy right now but after a couple rains it should lots of fun. There is new signage to help direct you on loop C also.

I walked this last Sunday with my 4 and 7 year old boys. They both took a great nap after. LOL!

Love this park and this trail!!

nice trail to go for a casual hike. nice views of the lake.

one of the best trails in the local area to prepare for mountain hiking

my 10 year old and I did both together. He carried 22 pounds and me just under 50. I would rate this trail as moderate. We both had a great time on the trail, we'll marked and maintained.

Started out great. But, poorly marked trails. Got lost and ended up in a housing Subdivision and another Trailhead called Blue Ridge adding 3 miles to walk back to Faulkner Trailhead. All together we did 7 miles! Be Aware. Locals know this too.

Love it for a flatter run than some of the other local trails. Pretty trails. Always see deer and other wildlife. Never too crowded.

We did loop A which was 2.5 miles or so. Great variety of hills and climbs not too rocky or steep either. Extremely humid at this park so I highly recommend a morning or evening ride specially in the summer time. I have never sweat so much in my life. Take plenty of water and your also supposed to pay a park fee. Beautiful trees!!!!!

Nice hike lots of hills and valleys. Mixed pine & hardwoods.

Very nice trail. Well marked and groomed. A bit confusing at times with many forks in the trail. Great shade and locations to stop and take pics.

A little crowded during peak hours but otherwise good with kids and dog.

We did all the trails here.. the nicest was the lake trail however the longer two A and B were fairly nice. Just a ton of bikes and not much room of the trail.

I give this trail 5 stars, however, I give this description of the trail 1 star. First of all, this trail isn't called "Tyler State Park Loop Trail". The actual name of this (hiking only) trail is called the LAKESHORE Trail. Secondly, the map of the trail is correct, except according to the official trail map issued by Tyler State Park the trail is a 2.1 mile loop and the trailhead actually starts in the Brown's Point day use area of the park. This trail does NOT include the A loop, B loop, C loop, D loop, EZ Loop or Blackjack Nature trails. As for the Lakeshore Trail, it is quite a beautiful trail, mostly flat on the north side of the lake, but quite hilly on the south side of the lake. Beaver Pond on the far east side is a real treat and has a really great view of both the lake as well as the runoff ponds behind the lake. Great place to view birds and turtles!!! The walk across the spillway also has nice views of the lake. You will pass 2 fishing piers along the way as well as an island and a playground. There used to be a 3rd fishing pier at the playground but it was recently torn down.

My husband and I hiked 1/16/17 with our two boys (5 and 2.5) and we really enjoyed our time there. We started hiking the C Loop and somehow ended up on the D Loop at the end! Still, it was a beautiful and somewhat challenging hike and we can't wait to do it again!

Great hike! Hiked the 6 mile total on bike trail. Only one biker the whole time! Ran about 3.5 miles before I knew I was on the longer trail. Walked the last part and really enjoyed the deer!

Great family camping and trails

If you do the easy loop the trail is closer to 10 miles. The A and B loops are pretty easy while the C&D loops offer more technical trails. Love these trails. For anyone wondering, the bridge has been repaired so the full trail is again available.

Just hiked trails A and B. Trails are well worn so it is easy to stay on path. Some nice hills, but generally easy terrain.
