As many other reviewers have mentioned, the trails are poorly marked, so plan to spend a bit of extra time to find and stay on the path. The strenuous stretch of the trail is aptly named - make sure to wear closed toed shoes if you decide to go down that path.

Very few trail markers. It’s easy to get lost, so make sure you use the All Trails map and check it frequently. Lots of hills and rocky sections, but also lots of flat trail. Overall a good loop.

It was great! We could use better markings to clearly mark which trail u r on. Western is a big trail with blue, red, yellow, orange plus probably more, but I’m not which trail is which. Almost got lost! Thank God for Maps and Waze!

Great trail, well kept and able to vary toughness. About 2 hours for 6 miles. Beware of horse droppings

HikingPrivate property

This trail is nice and has some old wood cabins that you can see the history of, however the trail goes real close to people's houses and yards so it's a bit weird to be walking on a trail when there are children out playing in their private yard.

Quick and easy! Just wish it were a little longer or had some side quests but a good one for kids for sure. Lots of poison ivy!

Great trail, we hiked the entire thing: 6.7 miles. You’ll get to a point where you have the option between strenuous and moderate. I highly recommend the strenuous path, it gets a bit rocky but the view to the stream below is gorgeous.

This trail as posted is not wheelchair or stroller friendly. The first 1.1 is thru the woods on hardpack and rooty and rocky. Since the 4.2 listed is an out and back, the last 1.1 is the same trail. Therefore a full half of this route is not wheelchair or stroller friendly. The second mile is on paved trail and goes past the entrance to the zoo. I opted to Go through the city on my way back instead of back tracking. Came across a nice farmers market on 17th st.

If it wasn’t for having my phone with live GPS I would have gotten lost four times. I had to keep back tracking because the blue blazes are not well marked and at intersections the signs are confusing. Have someone with you who either knows this trail or a well charged phone. Otherwise, great terrain, lots to look at and enjoy, plenty of shady areas, benches, or open spots to stop. If it wasn’t for the trail being so terribly marked I would have given it 5 stars.
