Features River/Creek

Overview

The route includes the Orange trail, connector, and Blue trail. All trails are both pedestrian and mountain biking. The trails are very well marked! Plenty of parking is available at the beginning of the route. Once on the State Park property, follow the Mountain Biking signs for the parking lot.

The trail run was worth the effort. Plenty of shade keeps you cool and grows abundant ferns along the path. The Blue trail meanders along the Hard Labor Creek encouraging you to stop and enjoy the view and cool off.

There are many shortcuts to reduce mileage if so desired.

Need to Know

A nominal parking fee for the state park.

Description

Beginning on the trail, signs will direct you based on the day of week. Remember to go opposite the bike traffic. The trails are very well marked at each intersection. Just remember for your entire run because the route will double back on itself.

The trails are mostly smooth with some roots and rocks to navigate, so keep your maximum soled shoes in the closet.

You begin on the Orange trail, then hop on a connector to the Blue trail. Once in the trees, look for ferns and plenty of covering hardwoods. The highlight of the run is the frequent visit to the creeks and streams in the park. Although no crossings, the path leads to the creek edge for nice views, tranquil water falls, or cooling off.
