Hiked about 4.5 miles in, from entrance on Lakeview Drive north to Springhouse Branch Trail. Finding the entry to the trail is challenging, since it goes under the bridge and signs were hidden in trees. May have been cleared up since, but worth mentioning. This is a wide multi-use gravel trail for hikers and horseback riders, so not too difficult, with enough climbs so it's not boring. Trail follows Noland Creek, which is located on the south end of the park, a less heavily trafficked area. Lots of beautiful trees and wildflowers, very tranquil. Worth the hike if you like the peace and quiet and an easy-to-follow but not too easy hike.
