If this area is meant to be hiker-friendly, it comes up a bit short. There really isn't much of a trail system. I fully understand conservationist sentiment but I wonder if there is excessive resistance to establishing better trails for the sake of preservation. Getting to spots that aren't just fields isn't straightforward. Lots of trees, streams, and ponds from a distance but you can't access most of these things unless you want to ignore Leave No Trace ethics.

There's plenty here, but until there are better trails it's not suitable for hikers. With the roads going through it, this is way more of a 'sight-seeing with binoculars' type of place, NOT hiking.
