Took the long loop through the forest on the red trail. It started off nice and easy and about halfway around to the river went full Oregon Trail on us. Rocky steep slopes, almost slippery declines. The trail was the water run off in some spots and we had to haul ourselves up with seemingly conveniently located vines and small trees. A total blast! And did I mention the stone stairs!

There are a few trails at the Hatchery along with the Canebrake. there is a lovely bluff trail that is 1.6 mile & the trails that connect directly to Canebrake (Fisherman & Corridor) can create a full loop nearly 2 mile long. The scenery is great, but is can be muddy the day after a rainfall.

NOT A FAN of this park! There are many different trail, most paths will cross water & share section, so it is hard to figure an accurate length without going on that trail. they are anywhere from 2-3 miles to 10+. Got lost mountain biking there once & ended up in Ozark, about 10 miles north. Trails are not well marked. But, if you know where you're going ... some of ther scenery is quite lovely.
