The trail itself is decently bland, just walking on an empty road. But I really enjoyed the feel of the place, especially during springtime when the floors are blooming. The trail gave off a "lonely adventure" or "nature overcoming city" type of vibe. Great for pictures. I would recommend going on this trail with a longboard or bike, its a bit too tedious on foot.
Pretty simple trail. Too short for my liking, but I ended up turning back and taking a trail off the main path (which is a no-no) and hiked straight up to enjoy a lake view. That short hike up was challenging a bit, which I liked since it was a short trail. A copperhead was killed there so be safe if you take the no-no route.

Pretty view, but the wind can be brutal. Straight paved road. I took my dog for a walk here... pretty boring. We're more the hiking types. Probably won't be back.
