Hit a hive a ground bees on green trail off of this trail...very bad...just warning anyone who takes white trail to be careful they swarmed us and stung us

Nice set of trails. Word of warning to watch your foot in if it just recently rained. Trails can be very slick and steep! Very nice walk with the dogs however! Definitely recommended for a nice trek and many trails to weave through! Also watch for dogs off leash apparently!

Somewhat overgrown and very muddy.Probably better earlier in the year and not after the rain we just had.Very buggy but gave a good workout!

on White Trail

I went on the White trail at first and then went on the Red trail so I could have a view of the bay. My mom and I ended up getting lost, but we had a fun time. There was so many bugs.

Good workout for beginners but no waterfall

There was horse plop everywhere! The horse flies were out of control. They would not leave my poor dog alone. Awesome trails, but I’m not sure I’ll be returning anytime soon.

Nice trail and well shaded. Perfect for a hot summer day.

DO NOT go in through the correctional facility. That is the property of the facility and I did have a guard waiting for me back at my car. He said there is an actual entrance for the State Forest from further south, but he was nice about it otherwise.
There are also a lot of signs along the length of the trail stating it's private property, so I don't know when it becomes trespassing

Great trail. Nice variety of terrain. Not much wildlife on our day

Amazing views and very peaceful

The trail is really nice with some great views. Have some time on your hands as it takes a good hour or two to complete.

Only bad things that I noticed was the horse poop for one, but I guess that's warranted.

The other thing is that there is no waterfall unless I'm blind. I saw a body of water that was buried behind the trees, but again, no waterfall. Probably should change the description unless I'm wrong.

Trail was decent but we had inch worms raining on us while hiking and the lake view wasn’t really that great after the difficult hike.

Good hike. Muddy in areas and horse tracks that dried made walking in a few areas precarious. Trail work was being done for fallen trees and spring clean up. All in all a good trail.

Nice trail, decent elevation, muddy in a few spots. Lots of birdsong and some cool, rare wildflowers along the trail too.

I did come across some horses, as well as horse shit. However, the trail offered a slightly(matter of opinion) challenging, steady incline, then periodic incline, combined with easy down hill or straight up walking.

Notable, green trail offered multiple bathroom stops.

Also a place to to refill your water.

this trail is a great one I took my kids with me had a good time it's a challenge gotta prepare yourself but overall great trail

Great trails for hiking or more advanced trail running. Beautiful scenic views of the bay and lots of elevation change to keep it interesting. The white and green trails are Best marked and easiest to follow. White trail out and back hitting the green loop both directions is about 5k.

Trails are in good shape. Certainly easy to find routes off and back to the main trail. Good rugged exploring.

Come here often throughout the year. Always a nice quick peaceful hike with great views.

Nice park with a variety of hilly areas. I thought the trails were clearly marked but I also referred back to the trail map on my phone. I liked the blue trail. I don’t think i’d take small children on the white part of the trial near the bay, as the one side of the trail drops off into the the bay. The only bummer was that there were some heavy industrial machines grinding trees on the other side of the bay and it’s was pretty loud (see photo). I think it was just bad luck that i went on a day where they were working.

Couldn’t be happier. Ends right on the water—bring your camp coffee setup for at A+ coffee outside.

Great trail! Some nice hills, very pretty. Took under 2 hours to do the 5 miles. I went when there was some snow on the ground, which was very icy underneath on most of the trail, maybe from the xc skis? So just be careful or bring your microspikes!

Great hike on well marked trail (green markers). Weather was cold but sunny.

If you are here for scenic views, be disappointed. If you are here to see nature and beautiful forest and wetland, look no farther. Birds sing, even late in the year. Deer bound across your way, and it is beautiful. A heron takes flight from the marshes and settles down again a distance away. Bring hiking boots, due to the mud. The trails are easily accessible, and at this time of year, the trails are mostly clear, save for the odd person Nordic walking the trails. However, the trail length of 7.5 miles is misleading. I followed the purple, then the green trails, and it came out to something like 4.0 miles. If you hiked all of the trails together, including the red and blue, you'd probably come out to 7.5 miles. Overall, though, it's definitely a place I'd come back to again, for hiking, birding, and just watching wildlife.
