What a cool place! It was easy to follow the trail using the AllTrails map but there are also lots of other trail offshoots. I’m going to add this to my favorites list and I will be back to explore some of the other trails!

Not well-marked. Ended up way off the trail, in the woods. Not good unless you are an experienced hiker.

Did blue to purple trails to Coogan Farm; great hike. If it has rained a lot I recommend boots-very muddy and wet in spots

Excellent trails. Easy for kids. Mainly flat. Lots of bridges and walk ways over water. Fields. Woods. Large boulders to climb on. At the nature center were several birds of prey, ex. owls, falcons to look at. Very fun day!

Very nice place to walk on simple, easy terrain nature trails. Neat bird conservatory. We brought our 11 month old in a baby carrier so it was perfect for a family walk. There were many benches to sit down on, which was nice for us to stop and have a little picnic. There is an admission, which we weren't aware of, $8 adults and $5 kids, however you can go to your local library and get a free pass. We only went on one of many trails, the forest loop. Overall beautiful, thriving foliage and wildlife. We would definitely go again.

The trail system is far longer than I expected and in fact there are several colored trails to choose from! I was also delighted that there is a natural history museum on the property! Such a neat place!

Great little local park for mt. biking ! Easy but moderate at points . Great little spot to ride for the afternoon, with a lot of different cutoff .. Very hard to get lost a its well marked and most trails end up back at the park office... Single track w some bridges.. Not very technical but just fun to ride....

This is a neat little place that is perfect for the young ones since there are a few shorter trails. They all connect to make your hike a half day if you prefer. They also have a nature center that's $8 for adults and $5 for kids. It's very small but interesting with all sorts of local wildlife on display. I thought it was worth the price ONLY bc it goes to a good cause and they have some taxidermied (sp?) birds of prey and various other animals. When you go outside to the trails they actually have live birds that can no longer be released into the wild. I saw owls, a falcon and hawks. There are various footbridges along the trail and well as ponds with turtles, fish and birds. This place is also highly recommended for birders! Saw a few white tailed deer as well. Happy trails!

First to Review

There are several trails offered by the Nature Center. We chose the trail that begins off of Coogan Blvd in the Aquarium surplus parking lot. It is a straight path to Mistuxit Rd. We found this path to be unused and over-grown in parts. There were a lot of pricker bushes creeping onto the path. Some of the trail is through grasslands, some through forest. There are some really nice foot bridges along the way. At the head of the trail is a map with the different color blazes and where they lead. For a great hike, it would be good to combine in some of these loops. We did not do this but plan to in the future.
