Enjoy this clean and safe preserve, and travel three miles of crushed-gravel trail through open areas of gently rolling hills that feature views of the marsh and scattered groves of trees. A wide range of plants and animals make their homes here. The wetland supports many species and is a great spot to view waterfowl such as pied-billed grebes and American coots. Hiking, trail biking, and cross country skiing.

Nice for an easy walk, cool bridge crossing the marsh. There's a park at the far end which has a nice clean bathroom and more paths to extend your walk a little.

Easy walking trail. Good scenery with the bridge and the Pine Forest. Constantly changing over the past four years with the brush being cleaned up.

Beautiful and clean. Great for dog walking. Wide paths decrease chance of being run over with bikes, other walkers, etc. Highly recommended.

Ran a 5k here in August. It was a pretty easy trail for a run.
