HikingGreat!

pretty trail. kind of easy to get lost. tons of deer around, if you can get away from the loud people that are very prevalent all over the trail.

Great hike! If you can handle the incline and the rocky path, take the trail that runs right next to the river.

Lovely trail with lots of options. Can do a short, medium or long loop. Pond, river and bubbly creeks. Lots of bikes though so watch out.

Map signs were missing early on the trail and we got turned around but figured it out eventually. It’s all good. Great hike!

Nice trail, but too many people on bikes and too many not wearing masks or keeping a safe distance.

Really nice spots! Not the best trail marking system in place. Got some extra distance out of this one due to blowing past my turn.

Nice walk around lake very easy , couple of trees across path but even walking with a support stick quite simple to get over. On the other trail a few trails were more difficult to navigate and thus not suitable if one needs a stick but the clear away crew is out and working.

It’s a great little trail. When we went there were a LOT of trees down. It was still enjoyable.
