It is a very nice trail. Has a nice stream that you walk along for a while. Very nice camping spots around groves of pine trees. I didn't see anyone all day. I did see several deer.

Well maintained. It was the first beautiful day outside this year and a lot of people were hiking. Campsites are well-marked. Not too difficult of a hike and it took me approximately three hours to complete.

Bloodroot Trail

This trail has problems from a mtb perspective. It's all double track, it's non-technical, around half of it is grass(sometimes really tall), and a good portion runs adjacent to farm fields. A novice that isn't in that good of shape might struggle with it's length combined with the grass, which is harder to ride on than dirt or pavement. On the other hand if you aren't a novice and are looking for a pure mountain biking experience, it will bore you. It's a weird combination. The KIN-TI-ON-KI single track mtb trail is right off the Bloodroot trail and is better all around for both novice and experienced riders. It's also much more fun. I've ridden the Bloodroot more times than I can count but I combine it with the KIN-TI-ON-KI trial and use it as a nice 18 mile workout ride. If you plan to ride it just take the good with the bad.

This is a close to home hike for the family. Nice elevation change after the rock shelter giving the legs a good work out. The service roads leave a lot to be desired but the back country area has some cool spots to hang a hammock and chill.

The wife, kids and I really enjoyed trail 3 today. Great scenery and a few obstacles to overcome, one being all the people today! Hangin in hammocks at Big Log Shelter afterwords eating a late lunch capped off a perfect day.

Please ignore the two other reviews for this trail as they were for walking trail number 4. For some unknown reason the enty for walking trail number 4 was merged with mountain bike trail number 2, also known as the Walnut Connector.
