Easy hike with a few nice lake views. Well maintained.
Very easy and quick trail, unique features of a pond with some wetland wildlife. Quite (not much human noise) trail.
Quiet wooded trail with views of two ponds. The trail is well maintained. There are some hills but not too strenuous. During the summer you will see great blue heron, ducks, hawks, and occasionally a deer. Early in the morning you may catch a beaver or two hard at work. During the fall, keep an eye out for owls. I heard them all the time during the summer, but with the leave off the trees, spotting them is not so rare. As the leaves change you will enjoy brilliant red, orange, yellow, and purple.
Someone asked me when is the best time to go on the trail and I told them, "Now" because every season brings its own solitude.
