Well marked and maintained trail. 25 degrees the day I was there and still birds and deer were observed.

Great Trail! After you reach the 4.5 mark and the "you are here" map, be sure to go left to return to Science Center and parking.

A good, long, moderate trail. The west-east trail is a perfect workout.

Great hiking trail! Very well marked. My wife and I did the orange loop. It ended up being right at about 5 miles.

Lots of up and down, making for a good workout. Very quiet and lightly trafficked the day we went.

A good thing to note is dog are only allowed on Saturday and Sunday. The rest of the week they are not. So I can not rate this place because I came with my dog on Thursday only to discover we couldn't do anything :/
