We did all the connecting trails.. I believe it was 7 km. Awesome views for almost the whole trail and lots of places to get off the trail and relax on some rocks and take in the views.
There is definitely some roads that are right beside the trail, with lots of cars going by but I still think it deserves 5 stars!

Always one of my favorite places to go. Love the views and the trails.

We didn’t do the perimeter road. Instead, we opted to do the perimeter trails. A number of trails intersect to take you around the coast. This gets you closer to the water, than the road. It also clocks in at around 7-km.

We set off early in the morning and had a great view of some Great Blue Herons and numerous smaller birds, squirrels and chipmunks. Some pictures attached.

We have hiked Taylor's island a number of times. It is impressive from the highway which is how we first stumbled upon it..."let's see if we can get there!" The paths are wide and mostly covered in crushed rock. Good for bikes , strollers, or a gentle walk. Lovely views and a boardwalk out onto the marsh. Tip: When mosquito season hits it is quite buggy, wear big jackets and bring bug repellents.

This is a beautiful park area. We made the complete tour of the outer trail. Lots of geocaches. Only downside are the amount of roads that have been added. Makes for a lot of traffic. There is no indication of this on any maps or websites.

Love this trail...basically just linking the outer trails at the Nature Park. Close to the city, well maintained and lots to see!
