Flat. Pea gravel. Buggy. Lots of poison ivy along edges of trail, but trail is wide and it’s easy enough to avoid. Good for biking, dog walking, jogging, and running.

I wouldn’t really consider this hiking but it’s a nice walk through the woods. Scenery is ok. It’s a nice walk with young kids as there are no large rocks and very wide and straight trails.

This trail can best be described as a long straight walk in the woods. It is a perfect place to walk a dog or go for a daily walk. The gravel trails are well maintained. Although there had been recent heavy rains, there was no issues with puddling. It was the perfect trail for a cold wintery morning.
