The trails are well marked but you can get lost and end up going in circles if your not paying attention. I would recommend taking a map with you. Good place for families and kids can walk the river and the red trails.

We started at the Red loop and enjoyed the beautiful trail through the woods, but beware that the mosquitos are thick at this time (June) If it weren't for the that we would have went further, but the part that we did hike was beautiful. Easy enough as well for our kids to enjoy.

Trail was good. Starts off really easy and then you mixes things up. A variety of gravel, mud, rocks surfaces. If you are looking for something fairly simple with a little variety this is a good trail. Took us an hour and 20 min but we stopped for pictures.

We are just starting to get in the woods great hike for the beginner to find out if this is what you want to do. The stairs will make or break you. we loved it.
