When we were starting we saw another gentleman who asked if we were ‘out for a walk today.’ I wondered why he said ‘walk’ instead of ‘hike’ until we finished the trail. While it’s not bad, it really is more of a walk and the trail is a bit overgrown. We took our 8 month old son in a backpack carrier and our dog. It served the purpose of getting out and it definitely wasn’t too difficult for our first ‘hike’ with a baby so it was good for us. Overall, if you want something that’s fairly straight forward, very few incline areas yet still pretty then this is great. It’s long enough that you can spend a few hours in an afternoon but not too long that you really need to prepare much. We spent 3.5 hours total there and back including probably 30-45 minutes stopping to deal with an overtired baby.

You walk along an overgrown path until you reach a sign that says you are at the end. Then you turn around. That's it. No views.
