Beautiful walk in the snow, but it was so loud at the plant it took away from the serenity of the park. That being said, I will still go back!

While the area is beautiful and good for birding, I just can't overlook the Dominion Power facility.

Nice scenery & good paths if you want to do some running instead of just a walk. Just under 5 miles if you do the whole loop

Hot Hot Hot! Much of the trail h
as no tree cover. If you're old & out of shape, try an easier trail. Bring plenty of water.

I had a very nice time hiking this trail.I hiked 5 miles with a 25lb backpack that I will be using on the Appalachian trail this spring.The trail is flat and is marked every 1/10 of a mile.Very nice scenery of the water,birds,etc. The trail has a nice bridge to cross the river.It was 40 degree's when I started the hike and it warmed up nice after a little while.It took me a little over 2 hours to hike the whole trail.
