Very difficult to follow trail markers and path was not well kept when I went in October.

Nice woodland preserve, but the trail markings can be erratic. It's easy to wander down a clear path that tapers off to raggedy scrub. The blue trail markers in particular seem to be clustered so close together that it has two or three blazes on one tree, and three more on the next tree 12 feet away, and then five more blazes on the next five trees. Then, nothing....
So download the map before you head out, or follow the blue dot as you go, to make sure you don't end up climbing several extra ravine slopes in search of the path.

Love this hike. Be prepared for a few steep climbs, which are tricky when muddy. Access to the creek at the end of the trail was rewarding and refreshing. Good chance for the dog to splash around and cool off!

this is a very nice trail! very well-marked and maintained. flows nicely through the terrain. Bridges and creeks throughout here and there. lots of different watering spots for the dog. beautiful Forest scenery. no real difficulties getting around anywhere on this trail. there are up and down slopes but nothing really difficult to walk. trail conditions are excellent today. beautiful day, great exercise! 8 May 2018

Might be easy for some, but I found it steep and not well marked. will try it again in dryer weather.

A little steep to first get onto the trail but once on it’s a great trail.

A quick loop that my dog loves to do!

Great trail that's easy to find. It's well marked except for the very beginning. Once you are on it, easy to follow. It's mostly shade and very peaceful especially by the babbling brook. It's a keeper. Good trail to take your dog too!

Nice little short trail. Only elevation is basically at the beginning of the trail as you descend towards the river. Well marked and well maintained

I loved the Trail, just I wouldn't go again at night! Definitely will recommend this preserve

Very nice trail well marked I would rate little harder than easy but great exercise for an hour.

I drove past the entrance to this little gem a few times before I found the tiny sign for it. I'm glad I persisted because it was a gorgeous trail! It was well marked and it was easy to see the trail, even without markers. There were quite a few bugs from all of the wet weather, but still beautiful.

It's a great little hike! The two side trails add to the exercise but the main trail has all the cool fixings.

Great place. Haven't been here in twenty years. Trails are very well marked.

Kids, hubby and I loved it. Did one loop without the two extra loops and that was plenty for the 4 year old.

Great hike today with my daughter. All the trails were in great shape with no ice and just a little mud to slow us down in the steep spots. We heard a great horned owl hooting from deep in the pines. Cool!

Beautiful area for a walk in the woods that is in the capital district. I wouldn't call it a hike, but walking isn't a category here, and really, what's the difference?

icy yet serene. It was cold and trails were icy. It was amazing how the family really got into it and ended with some great conversation, few landed on their bottoms and we all couldn't stop ROLF!

You could best describe this trail as a simple walk through the woods. There seems to be a colored marker on every tree and if you venture off the trail (possible in some spots) you'll likely end up back on the trail at a different point.

It winds around the woods and has a little up and down action to it at parts. You may also hear different sounds throughout as surrounding neighborhoods hug the perimeter. If you want to take a little nature walk for an hour, this is for you.

This was a nice easy walk to do after work. This is a nice gentle trail that's very going for people of all ages. Walking and enjoying the leaf colors were very nice and easygoing. I would recommend this for anyone looking for something casual to do.

I actually like this trail, yes, it's a steep hill to get down and small steep to get up, but for me and my dogs it's doable. The only thing I finds less desirable is people not leashing their dogs which causes chaos with mine as they are leashed while owners just stand there or don't even pay attention. Only if I tell them my dog is not dog friendly they make an effort to control their dogs. It's the only trail in the area where some dog owners do not observe rules and put theirs and other dogs and their owners at risk.

disappointed. it is not "easy", it is quite bumpy due to tree roots and almost right away the trail goes down quite a sloped hill. it is not a friendly trail for people with arthrtis, etc.

Excellent hiking doable in 2 hours or less with water to explore and play in.

This is a nice little trail. Easily accessible and easy to complete. I saw a few people walking their dogs and as well as a family with children, so the trail is usable by just about anyone looking to enjoy a quick 1-2 hr hike.

a slight challenge with some ups and downs. a couple places where we lost the trail markers briefly but a good hike. seemed a lot cooler than surrounding areas.
