I visit this trail at least twice a year but right now in the spring with the amount of snow we had this year it is just a bad time to visit. The bridges are in bad shape and in quite a few places the bridge is just barely there or is out entirely. We got close to the end and had to turn back because we just didn’t want to risk it with the logs people put down when the bridge went out. Definitely wait till next month or when they get the chance to fix the bridges.

Great trail. Kids friendly. Part of the boardwalk across the pond is flooded, be careful!

I lived right next to Creamers Field and walked the trails many times, year round. Even in the winter it is walkable and well marked and maintained. It’s a popular trail so there will almost always be some people there too but the trails are big and extensive so it’s not like you’re ever crowded really. Mosquitoes are absolutely killer in the summer. The open parts of the trail leading to the entrance of the boreal and wetlands trails are great spots for shooting the aurora when it’s out.

I’ve done this trail many times, I love the wood walkways and the beautiful scenery and wildlife. Always always always many mosquitos here in the summer so be prepared.

I'm from NC so when I came up for work I wanted to check out a local trail. I have to say, this trail was a pretty good way to finish up my trip before my flight home.

Beautiful walk in the middle of town. Cool bridges and surround by beautiful trees. Can get super buggy during season and muddy as well. Dog friendly.

Flat and easy walking. Good opportunities for wildlife viewing and birding. Saw around 200 sandhill cranes in late August.

Nice and flat. Lots of different well groomed trails in the winter. Ideal place for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, or just a leisurely stroll. Can be crowded at times. Kid friendly, you could do most of the trails with an odd road stroller or even pulling a little sled.

Nice easy, flat, short scenic trail. Beautiful views of the Tiaga forest, but bring your mosquito repellant. This area rather wet so mosquitos are everywhere.

This trail is great for easy walking and seeing beautiful forest scenery and waterfowl. The trails are flat, not strenuous at all, many handicap accessible. Just don't expect to do any "hiking," and you will not be disappointed!

Very pretty in the summer. There are some woods in the back of the trail that lead off to some other very pretty trails. Wander lake is back there, it is a man-made lake that has quite a few ducks and other water birds. This is a very easy, wide , marked trail.

The boreal forest loop is a beautiful forest walk through a dense birch forest. We were here the end of July when it was dry. I imagine it could be full of water fowl in the spring.

Easy walk. Enjoyable. Spring it can be very wet so plan accordingly before and during break up. Plenty of geese and a few swans to see. A good easy quick and close walk to just get outside for a little bit.

An easy hike, more for flora and fauna than anything else, since the ups and downs are almost non-existent.

This is a nice trail, easy to walk. I live right down the streat and it's nice to go out there and walk during the summer. There is a migratory bird sanctuary there as well so there is penty to see. One plus about this trail is that there are several off chutes that are all labeled and have the distances on the label. This is very benificial for trail running.
