Went with my 2 dogs, not a hard trail, but long enough to wear them out! Beautiful bridge, and lakes to take pictures of. I can't wait to go back during the summer and see all the green trees!:) Downside- Lots of people so parking was tough and the dogs got distracted with everyone. Also no poop bags can along the way so I carried one for the entire trail. |:
Starts with a nice paved path thru woods to unpaved trail loop with beautiful views of Aquia creek. The cut limestone boulders were fun for kids to climb and the area is clean and well preserved. Only complaint was the high volume of traffic on this trail.

Great trail to just take for a nice easy walk.
My family just started our trail and hiking as a family adventure and we opted for this trail as #1.
i wanted something short and easy for the girls age 9 and 14 . Personally I am a hiker and love the more challenging routes however this location was the best choice. the girls loved the historic facts and scenery even in the cold lol.
it is a trail for all skill level. It was ideal traffic...we encountered a few dog owners and couple joggers and a few walkers. We will definitely bring our dogs there to check it out.
it is close 2 our home so definitely a place i will go there.
