Over half of this "trail" is dirt road. It opens up with a pretty significant climb up a logging road to Horseshoe Trail. Horseshoe trail eventually turns into an actual trail. Since we went left the trail was relatively steep and rocky. This trail should definitely be considered moderate as opposed to easy because first time hikers are going to find this terrain difficult at best.

We were very disappointed. Because much of the trail is attached to logging efforts, there was little to no wildlife. We heard one wood pecker, saw one squirrel and two blue birds. We will never return to this trail and I would not recommend it to anyone.

I did a loop of Middle Creek Trail to Elder's Run to Horse-shoe trail, 3.75 miles total. Good hike, couple of steeper rocky parts but mostly easy. Nice views of the creek and woods. Would definitely do this again.

Great day hike. Good for all levels. Some trails are steep with many switchbacks and some are flat and very easy for beginners. Too hot? Then stop at the museum and cool off while listening to a great presentation by one of the volunteers. Lots of wildlife to be seen, great place to photographs many species of birds.

The scenery is beautiful. Very nice indoor welcome/information center. I wish the trails were connected or at least marked better so that we could find more without getting back in the car and driving until we found another one.
