This is definitely a site for some easy walking. It's a great place for observing wild life, or if you're looking for a quiet spot to rest or read. Not so much for "hiking."

Watershed is a local favorite of mine. It's not long. Half of the trail is grass. The other half is paved and features a cement "boardwalk" through a marsh. I generally see some type of wildlife - ducks, geese, herons, egrets, deer, muskrats, otters. There is a nature center with activities for kids and educational areas.
