Nice hike for the whole family. You'll meander through the woods with views of the pond along the way. The trail-head was easy to find, right off the parking lot at the Park Headquarters.

Nice easy trail,great for families

Great hike, perfect for an hour outside

Lovely views over the lake. Peaceful. Easy / smooth walk. Took about 50 minutes total.

Great trail to walk with kids and dogs. Could be better marked but otherwise a scenic trail.

Easy trail, with very little elevation change. A few exposed roots to look out for, but overall well maintained and marked. Hiked with 4 year old son and 10 year old dachshund. We all made it with ease in about an hour.

One of my favorites! Great walk through woods and fields. A few ponds along the way. Stay vigilant, the trail could be marked better in a few spots but nothing that should stop anyone from giving it a shot! Be careful when you go too, can get really buggy. Or bring some bug spray!

Took my 11yo son and we had a great hike. Good mixture of inclines, declines, and some open fields. Definitely recommend.

Great activity for an April vacation walk! Some hills were tricky for my 7 year old and her footing, but overall great time!
