Nice on a Sunday morning. I am the only one on the trail. A bit bland but a really nice walk..

Nice, easy trail, short and well-kept but be prepared for a well saturated ground. Bring your rain boots! Good fishing here at a periodically stocked lake with a kayak/canoe service at the field house. Pavilions for cook-outs available with a reservation. One of my favorite close-to -the house parks!

Nice trail. Not much elevation change. 8 foot wide mowed path. If you can, get out on the water, nice little lake.

Just a short trail with some good views and benches for watching the herons/egrets and such. The visitors center has concessions, a small room with some info/displays, and kayaks and such for rent too, and i hear it has decent fishing altho i didn't bring my pole this trip.
