Walked dog here with my mom and aunt. There were a few too many steep hills for them, but the dog and I did great. Very little shade, I suggest wearing a hat. Nice views, saw a group on horseback.

Trail is paved and great for biking. saw plenty of rabbits, birds and even a beaver. really hot day, so this was perfect in the 95+ Fahrenheit heat.

Easy access paved quick walk through nature taking over old golf course. Great For quick glimpse of nature if you don't have a lot of time or just need a break. I have seen kingfishers and green Herons here. Lots of beautiful birds.

Good views. paved - some areas are a little worn out but they keep up with mowing around the trails. Decent elevation changes too. Oddly there doesn't seem to be many people on the trail.

This is a beautiful area to relax & walk around. You have the option of taking a 1/2 hour walk or a shorter 10 minute walk. The hills make the area more scenic. It is very quiet & peaceful.

Very quiet and peaceful walking/running trail, there were cars on that huge parking lot but I didn't meet anyone there. The view was nice, really green grass and trees, couple of bridges. Good for peaceful walk in the nature, but not very exiting. Lots of benches so it's good for picnic

Nice place to take your dog for a walk or go for a stroll - there are two paths you can take. It’s a good alternative to walking on the bike path if that’s a bit further of a drive. It’s also a good spot to go snowshoeing when there’s snow.

I don’t know if it is supposed to be a secret to be discovered on your own once you get here, because two minutes into my walk I realized that the green grass and trees around me was a run down golf course and I was walking on a cart path. I have not seen anyone mention this on any of the posts. It was a good walk with enough hills to stretch the legs.

Not an exciting trail, but a nice paved walking spot for muddy spring days.

This is a perfect trail to just walk. It's paved and most of the times I've gone there was hardly anyone else there. Part of the trail is feet from some backyards and the roads. You do have to cross the street a couple times to get to the rest of the trails. I think the only problem with this trail is that if I have to pick up and dispose of dog poop then there should be someone picking up and disposing of the horse poop too. Just watch where you step and keep an eye of your dogs so they don't roll in it.

Paved trail, hiked it late spring alot of birds, good for strollers, runners. although the only problem was that most of the trail was 6 feet from the property lines of house on the adjacent road. I could see myself going here with kids or elderly. there are also cut through paths.
