Great for any level of adventure, run the tabletop loop (2miles) or straight back to the replica sight and back ~4miles. Half trees and shade, half meadow edge. Great in June July August

A nice easy hike with great views that is easy to get to. It gets a little hot, so it might be better to go earlier in the day. It would also be an easy mountain bike ride because it is not too steep or technical.

This trail is amazing!! We hiked up the Spruce Mountain Loop but instead of taking the whole loop at the top we opted for going down the steep service road to the Eagle Mountain Trail. I recommend doing that because you get to see both the mountain and valley views. Highly recommended trail!

I love this trail, it's not hard and you get a lot of different types of scenery during the hike.

This is a nice loop hike. The only thing missing is a stream for the pups. Mountain bikers need to let you know they are coming fast around the turns. Thank you!
