heavy foot traffic but for a fun trail close to Philadelphia and the suburbs its absolutely worth it.
We had a great time! Gone a few times. Best if you can go midweek as the weekends brings in quite a few people. Well cared for, clean, much to see!
The trail is awesome, but beware of hikers with unleashed unfriendly dogs. My leashed pup was attacked by a women's dog who was unleashed.
If you don't have a friendly dog don't let it off its leash!
Half of the trail was well maintained, the other half was very hard to follow. Certainly an easy trail none the less, finished in 1 hour.
Four stars for a decent amount of trailhead parking, tons of picnic tables and play areas located around the park area and nice trails. While this type of trail isn't something I'd normally enjoy they were well kept, wide enough for four people easily walking side by side, and would be good for cross country skiing or an easy Sunday stroll. Probably not a trail we'll head back to but serves its purpose well.
