I am a newbie at hiking and this is a nice trail for someone like me. It is very muddy and squishy in parts but that is to be expected. I enjoyed this trail very much and will be revisiting
Trail was a short loop around the pond. In March, parts of it were quite muddy, so plan for some mud slogging.
Amazing!! So much wildlife
