A nice simple walk that is also good for seeing wildlife. Well maintained trails. Feeding Chickadees out of your hand with some seed is popular here.

A lot of good memories created on this trail. We walked it mid-April every year to mark my ex’s birthday, in-laws and babies to big kids all managed the hills. Feeding chickadees and spotting turtles sunning themselves, skunk cabbage and marsh mallows, quiet reflective times and rowdier races. We always enjoyed it! Now I’m blissed, knowing my sons carry on the tradition with their children.

I Have been here dozens of times. A great place for a relatively short hike that covers different terrains. Take a small Ziploc bag of bird feed and feed the birds right out of your hand. There are a few places to sit down as well.

Free parking lot. A very nice and easy trail walk. There are some wooden walkways that you can stand on and feed chickadees from, right out of your hand so bring a small bag of seed, There are a few benches throughout that you can sit down and just relax. The far end of the loop goes around a big pond, quite often there are geese and ducks around. There are some inclines and declines mostly at the beginning and end so you want to make sure you are wearing proper footwear.
