This was an easy, pretty walking trail loop, with a variety of paths to take. There’s an interesting teepee type structure made of branches that we came upon during the walk. Easy to social distance - saw just 3 other walkers in our 45 minutes there on a Saturday mid-day. Lots of chipmunks, squirrels, birds and one rabbit spotted.

One of my favorite small trails in this area; Lots of wildlife to see (chipmunks, red-breasted robins, blue jays, squirrels, deer, ducks), lots of spots to enjoy the river, and some small inclines if you’re looking for a short trail running sprint. There are occasionally off-leash dogs (a plus for me!), so don’t be surprised if you’re greeted by a pup in the woods before you meet their person.

Very cute, nicely labeled, looked recently cleaned up of debris from storms. Perfect for little children or a quiet stroll

Short and easy to get back with many pathways. In December lots of leaves and not all people curb their dogs. I stepped in poop. All in all, excellent secluded hike that’s incredibly accessible. Rocky path but easy enough to hike.

I agree with Helen, the cross trails were confusing and poorly marked. The trail and canopy were beautiful.

A nice quick trail, a couple of the signs were unclear and some of the corss-trails weren't clearly marked, but otherwise an easy trail.

Easy trail for running with my dogs if I’m looking for something quick, only takes about 15-20 to get around the park. Lots of off leash dogs.
