A nice flat rail trail. Takes you to two ponds along the way.

Great walking trail. Plaques were very informational about the area. Nice flat trail. Little hill going in and coming out but not too too bad. Beautiful scenery.

Not as scenic of a hike as expected. Pretty slippery due to small rocks on trail. Not kid friendly really. I'd go back but I'd make sure to not take my kids .

I run this trail 2-3 times per week. Great trail and easy. Dog friendly for the most part. Can get very crowded. I run it in winter with traction thanks to the skiers and snowshoers.

Hiked today. Was coated with packed snow and some ice. About 37 degrees and only windy as you got around the lakes where cover was scarce.
Great view of the pond at the end of this simple trail. I imagine it's great running after the thaw. Mostly flat. Nothing steep. I recommend this trail.

Beautiful ride on our bikes! Kind of a steep hill down going in and up going out but otherwise an easy ride with lovely scenery along the way. Informational plaques to read as well which provide a bit of history about the area.

This trail has gorgeous views. Nice quick hike. The cons... some of the aggressive dogs people cant control. The two aggressive golden retrievers on electric fence are horrible. The dog feces that nobody picks up is pretty gross. Been going for a couple years now and it was gorgeous but I think fellow dog owners are getting lazy. Som en pick it up and toss the bag to the side.
