This was a lovely trail that ran along a river. We went on a Saturday so it was pretty crowded but it was worth it for the experience. We did it with our three month old in the baby carrier and it was pretty easy to the stone mansion but we continued up the trail to an area where there were switchbacks up to where the Audubon is and that was short but a little difficult with the baby-totally worth it. Only thing we didn't think about was we had our dog with us so when we got to the top we had to take turns one staying with the dog and the other visiting in the Audubon society building, they don't allow dogs.
Not too long or short, not too easy or hard. Not too many people. Perfect mix of nature and city view
Perfect for my 5 year old!
Didn't really care for this hike. Way to crowded ( just like it says) really muddy as well and the water was nasty color. Good for a one time hike.
One of my favs.
