Very easy, very nice, very dog friendly. I would come back in a heart beat.

A nice walk through the woods, not challenging at all

Overall, a quiet path with some beautiful trees all around. I wish that I could have been here in the spring or summer when everything would have been blooming. Even after the leaves have fallen, I could tell how pretty everything would have been at a different time of year.
This is a nice, gentle rolling trail that is mostly a mowed path that goes up and down through the edges of the forest. The trial is very well-labeled with maps at intersections to help with finding a direction. There is a guidebook for the long trail, but I was just out for introspection.
The downsides are that I wish there were better vistas overall. Also, the proximity to the highway meant that I could hear it in the background for about half my hike.
