It was nice, mostly shaded, almost completely flat, and wide enough in most places that two people could walk side-by-side. I did run into some poison ivy growing in the trail. I wish the trail had been marked, or that there had been a map displayed somewhere at least, but I couldn't find one. Not too exciting, but not a bad place to spend an afternoon wandering.

The trash left out there is really disgraceful. If you PACK it in PACK it out! Your mother is not out here cleaning up after you.

Great! Slightly muddy in some spots. I would not classify the trails as difficult. No steep inclines that I encountered at least. I explored 3 of the trails in less than an hour. I would have stayed longer but it was getting dark.
