For the area its in its not to bad a trek. Nothing extremely spectacular but a nice woodland walk offering many diff species of trees, with lots of rolling hills to challenge your level of fitness, diff scenic views, and for the most part not to busy which is what I like about winter hiking.

Has some maintenance that should probably be addressed but all was passable and we enjoyed the 5 mile hike with our 4 kiddos!

A well maintained trail generally for beginners. Attempted the Nature's Corner loop but had to backtrack when trail was lost due to heavy leaves and low traffic due to a bridge being out. The trails are generally flat along ravines or ridges except for 3-4 steep descents and climbs between the two.

Really enjoyed hiking here. The two areas where it said 'bridge out, proceed at your on risk' were the most fun. Not a hard trail but there are a few areas where trees were down. Just made it more fun.
They are currently doing some work to shore up ledges. Awesome work!
