Very easy trail around a lake. Plenty of ppl, dogs, and even stroller traffic. The path is wide and allows for you to get around people if needed.

Pretty small and the trails were confusing.

Super confusing to follow the blazes. They definitely need to be remarked.

I took my chocolate lab to the trail and we loved it so much, easy walk, decent distance. Even some parts of the trail close to the expressway, but I didn’t find it bothersome. I plan to take my lab back again everyday until it’s time to go home

So not exactly what I was hoping for. The trails were nice, decent quality, but god was it confusing. after the fourth time of ending up back at the start after trying to take the longest "burgandy" trail, we decided to call it a day. Following the blue and yellow trails were just as confusing. They need to remark the trails and add some extra marks as well.

It's a pretty decent trail, however the first 2.2 miles runs parallel with the highway, and all that noise that comes with it. Bug spray is also a must.

Nice walking/running path. The occasional unleashed privileged dogs.
Lots of shade.

My fav for running! Beautiful park!

Felt like a real forest experience. My dog loved it!! Only flaw is the lack of signs and we got lost several times. Need better signage/directions!

a great jungle experience, except hard to follow the makers

Short, easy, wide, packed trail. Rather busy for an early Sunday morning but everyone was very friendly!

Beautiful, short, wooded trail. We went late morning when it was to hot to normally walk with our dogs but nice and cool on the trail.

Great walk but not quiet since it’s still near the interstate and very busy. Overall a very nice walk and scenic.

Im all for a Naturalistic walk but at a point it becomes a problem when the trails look like a hurricane came through 7 months past hurricane season. Everything is overgrown / derelict. The only other people there were 16 year old stoners on the bike jumps. Then again it fits the bill for southern VA, trashy and occupied by bums. Can't wait to get back to Colorado.

Trail was pretty cool.

I walked in today and did Otter Point Trail and then Molly Mitchell. I had Otter Creek all to myself and didn't even see another Person. I definitely wouldn't do any hiking in this park after a rain as a lot of it is low lying. It was easy and well maintained. Lots of places to stop and take in nature of to grab a rest.

This is a easy great trail. I have no clue why it's listed as a moderate trail. You will have to cross a ditch or two at a slight incline, but that is the biggest challenge. Bring bug spray of some sort during the summer. I have walked this trail in almost every season and they all have their rewards. You can check out my short review and pics on the Google listing or on Instagram @archangel.photography.

A lot of litter and some idiot with unleashed dogs other than nice trail. Will do again and next time bring a bag to pickup litter

Trails are great. To bad we went after a week of rain so most of them were washed out. Would definitely go back and try again on a more dry week. Lots for the family to see. My little girl loved it and had a blast.

Scenic path around the lake. Heavily used, and you won’t get away from the road noise. However, if you’re looking for something quick, accessible and local to get outdoors for a bit, it’s a good walk.

great trail!

had a great time!

not a bad little walk to just get out of the house for a bit.

Quit crying about the litter and do something about it. It’s a free park. Do your part !!! We all need to do our part keeping trails clean.

trails were not marked very well at all and trash everywhere. not a trail i would do again

Love this trail. Only problem is large groups of student athletes run at fast pace, which can be a bit dangerous. Otherwise awesome.

Well kept, short trail. Not much elevation change, probably would be very boring for experienced mountain bikers. Nice views of the lake. Two offshoot trails that were less well kept, but offered slightly more in the way of trail biking than the main trail. Overall, probably more of a walking trail but a nice experience.

An ok trail if you live nearby and need to stretch your legs, but it really is just 2 giant fields with paths cut by mowers. I go every so often to walk the dog, but only on cloudy and windy days during warm months. Biting bugs can be really bad so I only go if there is a strong breeze. There is a brand new just finished parking lot. Be aware one loop can be super muddy and the other has a few muddy spots. My dog needed a bath when we got home today. Might be fun for kite flying.

This is a small local trail for me, and excellent for walking/hiking and mountain biking. I do wish it had better markings, but that is only a minor issue.
