Everything was great, just an absurd amount of gnats constantly in your face. Trail was easy and beautiful. A few spots to get down to the water. Will definitely be going back with my dog!

It’s an easy stroll through local woods and has become something of a local go-to place for a quick walk. FYI, dogs are frequently present and are often off-leash. There are occasional issues with dogs and/or their owners often having to do with poop or off-leash behavior.
