Trail was so well kept and the variety of plants was incredible! As a houseplant addict I was impressed by the diversity and signage, although not all of the plants were native. However, as we were finishing up the loop trail we came across the garbage cans which were literally overflowing with yucky trash and spilling out to the surrounding area around the trash cans. The bathroom also needed cleaning. 5/10 on facilities, 10/10 on the actual trail

Great trail for the most part. Not the trails' fault but 3 out of 4 dogs we passed were not on leashes. That's how trail systems lose the dog friendly aspect so PUT YOUR DOGS ON A LEASH!

Trail was a nice walk. Dog friendly (on leash). If you like flowers and plant/tree diversity you’ll love this trail. Almost everything has a name listed below it. The little pond was nice and there was a marsh nice to walk around.

AWESOME! Managed to make about a 3 mile loop around the park. Beautiful! Never knew this was here, but it’s close to my son’s flight lessons, so I thought I’d check it out. Glad I did! It’s like a Hanna Park for hikers.

very well maintained trails and with many foliage markers. I truly appreciated having this app with me to maximize distance. no maps available at trailhead so I think one could get lost, going around in circles. I felt quite safe walking alone on a Friday morning.

Second time visiting this trails and finally was able to hike the entire place. A definite must see to challenge yourself with some good elevation gain and to learn about plants, local wildlife, water treatment, and some history.

Decent trails all things considering but the noise from the highway and roads really ruins it unfortunately.

I really liked this trail. There were different types of terrain, different scenery. The trail was pretty crowded and there are so many trails here that you have to pay attention so you don't go off on the wrong one.

The trail was pretty, but you could hear road noise and there were a lot of people, even someone allowing their son to ride a hoverboard and husband to drive his very loud remote control car. Maybe if he had been a little more considerate of those wanting to enjoy nature, it would have been more enjoyable? Parking was very limited but we found a spot after a few loops around the lot. The lake was pretty and there was an ADA complaint loop for those in wheelchairs or needing to carry medical equipment. The non paved trails were beautiful and offered a respite from the city nearby. It was also kid and dog friendly. We will return.

It was very beautiful and SO relaxing. Seeing the different trees and plants made me feel so happy inside. My favorite trail was the Rosemary trail, we saw the witch hazel plant. We brought our dog but we cut the trail short so we could get him some water but next time we’ll come back prepared!
