I had a very nice time hiking this trail.I hiked 5 miles with a 25lb backpack that I will be using on the Appalachian trail this spring.The trail is flat and is marked every 1/10 of a mile.Very nice scenery of the water,birds,etc. The trail has a nice bridge to cross the river.It was 40 degree's when I started the hike and it warmed up nice after a little while.It took me a little over 2 hours to hike the whole trail.
It's a nice place for a hike or casual mountain bike ride… The trail is the size of an improved Single lane dirt road around and through the conservation area. Some of the drawbacks are very few viewing opportunities to see the open water and about a third of the trail is bordered along side of the landfill
This trail is miles away from crowds and civilization, and the trail is nice a flat. However, I saw more tires than birds and walked next to a landfill with barbed wire fencing for at least a mile of the 4 mile loop. I have to imagine there are more scenic trails is the area. Not sure a return trip is warranted. Unless my car gets a flat.
I love this trail. There's a lot of wildlife. Great for birding. It's flat and easy to navigate. Would probably be a blast on a bike. I love hiking it on warmer days in the winter. There is hardly anyone about, and it's extremely peaceful. One time I even saw a river otter!
