    Great family hike. Some steep areas near summit, but my 73 year old father and 8 year old son had only minor difficulty.

    Easy to moderate, my dog, 74 yr old father and 9 year old son had no problems, though they're tired after a couple of hours! Very nice area.

    I just walked this trail for the first time. It's late Oct. and seasonal. This is a great little forest walk and excellent for what it is; a marshy trail nestled between a residential neighborhood and a highway. The ambient noise of the highway was not terribly distracting and a train whistle in the distance was charming.

    The 1mi loop is about half a mile in from the parking are (accessed by a broad, grassy lane) and punctuated by somewhat questionable boardwalks over marshland. If I'd had younger children with me I'd have turned back until I walked it first. Now, though, I'd take my 8 yr old, but not my younger nephew.

    I recommend water resistant footwear. My sneakers left my feet a bit damp. O also will avoid the area during biting insect season without a face net and tons of spray; it IS a full marsh.

    I'll definitely be back and next time with my dog :)
