Moderate trail, short, and good for young kids. Not many other hikers even on a busy fall weekend.

easy, short hike. I actually really like this trail but gave it a 3 due to the noise. it's pretty close to the road most of the time except when you go into a ravine area. there are lots of birds and lots of bugs(got bit by several mosquitoes)

Enjoyed half the trail as the other half was disappointingly too close to the road for my liking. I prefer a more “remote” feeling. Horse barn smells of manure, no escaping that.

Nice short trail by the horse barn. Lots of green in June!

Very nice, peaceful trail. Great for kids! At one point we could hear very little to no mechanical noise. There was a nice peaceful stream at the bottom. Near the beginning there were quite a few blowdowns, some of which I was surprised had not been removed yet.

Park just reopened and the trails need traffic. It has been raining all week so the trail was understandably muddy in the run-offs.

This is the perfect trail for a family with smaller kids or dogs. I never felt like it was too strenuous, but at the same time is wasn't super easy, so it worked for the whole family!

Was a well marked trail. Couple nice inclines but if you pace yourself trail was fairly easy.

Great trail for exploring different terrain. Good for kids. Trails are well marked and not difficult. Some paths were narrow and overgrown but easy to walk through.
