It's a nice short hike but it was little overgrown in some areas. Also it was slippery in steep parts of hike.

It's a unique trail and the area is very nice. In a way, how overgrown it is adds to the beauty. The trail being rugged and broken up is why I gave three stars. Its extremely muddy and hard to navigate. I did this trail with my baby in a stroller and it was difficult. Worth the workout though!

Amazing trail offering a lot of variety despite being rather short. I have been completing it every second day during the quarantine. The trail offers a good escape out of the city while being very much in the city. Terrain is mostly rugged and broken, quite muddy after rain but the trail is easy to follow. You will see a river, small lake and a variety of beautiful trees and small hills. Very moderately trafficked, offering plenty of time for contemplation or an insightful dialogue :)

very beautiful! I bet it's even more beautiful in the summer. however it was quite steep and slippery in some areas. I had hiking boots on and fell more than a few times. I had to check my GPS more than a few times well as it forked a lot and was never marked. if you're ok with falling it's a fun trail!

The paths aren’t the easiest to follow on the first time, as previously mentioned. However, they are great if you have a buddy and sense of adventure.
