This was my first trail run and it was fun and easy. We went right at dawn and didn’t run into anyone.

The “loop” is a country road (no cars) with trees on both sides, only occasional views of ponds and the river. Surface varies from packed sand to grass, great for running. There are a couple of picnic tables close to entrance along 1st part of trail. The mini-loop on the right side of the trail is recommended if you want some variation, it’s short but bumpy. A well-maintained boardwalk cuts across the loop to a pier on the river with a nice park bench, about a half-mile each way out/in and suitable for stroller if you bring your baby. Remember bug spray. One downer is people who pick up their dog’s poop in plastic bags then LEAVE IT laying on the trail or hanging in a tree — why‽‽‽‽‽
