Nice quick walk, even has a split in the middle in case you need to do an even shorter trail. And a couple benches in the middle for a break. Unpacked, but packed gravel path. Electric wheelchair would do okay, and a manual could probably be decently pushed. We are always looking for places we can take the dog to hike. Signs were a bit confusing, we couldn’t figure out where to enter the trail directly - cause the wildlife area you walk thru to get to the trail, had signs for no dogs.

Only negative here is that it's a small place. They have a wildlife hospital and rehabilitation center, mini zoo with all the animals that come in (from bald eagles to bobcats), visitor center, nature trail, you can 'adopt' the animals to help pay for their food/shelter and such, Even had a staff member outside with a great horned owl that had a messed up eye educating everyone them. Really a small little gem out there.
