Beautiful area for a walk in the woods that is in the capital district. I wouldn't call it a hike, but walking isn't a category here, and really, what's the difference?
You could best describe this trail as a simple walk through the woods. There seems to be a colored marker on every tree and if you venture off the trail (possible in some spots) you'll likely end up back on the trail at a different point.
It winds around the woods and has a little up and down action to it at parts. You may also hear different sounds throughout as surrounding neighborhoods hug the perimeter. If you want to take a little nature walk for an hour, this is for you.
This was a nice easy walk to do after work. This is a nice gentle trail that's very going for people of all ages. Walking and enjoying the leaf colors were very nice and easygoing. I would recommend this for anyone looking for something casual to do.
I actually like this trail, yes, it's a steep hill to get down and small steep to get up, but for me and my dogs it's doable. The only thing I finds less desirable is people not leashing their dogs which causes chaos with mine as they are leashed while owners just stand there or don't even pay attention. Only if I tell them my dog is not dog friendly they make an effort to control their dogs. It's the only trail in the area where some dog owners do not observe rules and put theirs and other dogs and their owners at risk.
