Really nice trail! Great for beginners or light walkers. Definitely nice for families with young kids. The trails are mostly gravel roads which makes it easy to follow and great for running. Quite a bit of horse poop but we didn't mind since the trail didn't smell like a barn. Speaking of barns, we took a detour to stone barns center and saw some cute ducks and chickens. The kids there were loving it.

Went at 9:30 and the trails were super quiet. Started to get packed an hour and a half later when we were leaving. Would return for a run!

There was not much to look at or do on the trail. Barely a trail, just a walk around a swampy "lake." Park has not been maintained evidence due to horse poop all along the trail and trees not nicely preserved. Saw a horse! That was about it.

Beautiful trails and you can spend hours hiking but very easy and a little boring. We prefer a more challenging hike.
As another reviewer stated, there is A LOT of horse poop on the trails which is somewhat annoying when you have kids and dogs with you.

Very nice but lots of horse shit on the trails, and no water under the 13 bridges!
