A very scenic place to visit. It’s so nice I just wish it were longer.

Very calm and quiet hike. Very easy. Very leveled. Not too much wildlife, but plenty of dog poo on the trail and the boardwalk. PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOGS.

Nice and easy little hike, took about an hour going relatively slow and in flip flops. Nice board walk trail around the pond, have a spot about half way for dogs or kids (rocky though) to dip their feet/ drink running river water. Some sections of boardwalk look new, some look pretty old, the older stuff has gaps between the planks about a 1" to 1.5" so medium to small dog owners will have to go a bit slower/ watch out. Half was well kept and shady, half wasn't and in the sun!

Loved it! Beautiful and serene with awesome and varied nature around you. Outside the distance part, which can be customized by combining different trails, pretty flat and easy. Be sure to bring your bug spray!

Nice easy walk. Boardwalk was cool some planks recently updated to wider and thicker planks. Old sections not good for your dog as I can imagine their paws not quite landing correctly. Left my dog home for that reason. Recommend.

Beautiful and peaceful loop through the marsh. Mostly flat throughout.

Great spot for scenery and pictures. Hike is fairly easy, not too hilly. There's a 2 mile loop as well as longer trails.
