It was beautiful my only complaint it that the whole trail was not stroller friendly. I drove over an hour because the site said stroller friendly and where half of it is...the gravel has rock stairs and roots coming up out of the ground...I think this should be noted so people are aware to not try that part with the stroller. I walked the stroller friendly part multiple times with my baby and enjoyed it very much.

We stop here and take a couple loops around the lake on long car trips. Beautiful scenery, mostly flat, some gravel and rocks.

This is a good trail. Good scenery, but keep in mind is what a call an urban trail. No too much nature such as rocks and roots on the trails. It is kind of paved.

Beautiful park, great to take kids to play or feed the ducks. Also have paddle boats to rent. We walk here often.

Enjoyable mostly paved path around the spring and lake it flows into. Some interesting artifacts along the trail (train depot, cannon) make this an educational trail as well. The visitor’s center is worth a stop.

Bird watching
First to Review

Spent approximately 2 1/2 hours here birding around lake on paved sidewalk with side trips to overlook and across playground area. Early April bird highlights: Yellow-throated Warbler and Yellow-belllied Sapsucker; 35 species of birds this morning. 12 wildflowers and unidentified dragonflies and damselflies. Butterflies included Red Admiral and Spring Azure.
