Great trail. A few fallen trees on the trail that need to be removed. Otherwise these are hazardous.

First hike with the kiddos. Muddy trail due to recent rain. All had wet socks, muddy shoes and paws.

Easy but authentic hike for beginners... with lots of encouraging and rewarding vistas. Perfect trail to seduce someone into more hikes in the future. Your XBOX kids might find a challenge keeping up. No functioning bathrooms when offices are closed... gotta resort to more natural ways.

I took the trail up to where it meets with Mt Burdell. Lots is switch backs make it doable, but then you feel like the scenery is all the same. Hearty walk up, but and easy 5 mile jog back down.

Nice easy hike if you have small children. Village in the beginning has lots to see. The trail is not very scenic, but it's easy and the entire family can enjoy it.

A nice easy walk in a pretty park with lots of history. You can also extend your hike to the top of Burdell for some great views.
