We tried to walk the trail on a Monday after a 3-4 inch rain over the previous weekend. about 1/3 of the way in..it was totally impassable. If we had rubber boots..we might had kept going. It was too bad,because it was sunny and cool and the park was virtually empty. it was a nice,serene and beautiful walk.

I usually hike it twice. Easy way to get in 3 miles. Pretty even terrain and low traffic. I love this trail for a quick fix.

Nice trail through beautiful forest, over a bridge and along a nice ridge. Then it comes back down around the creek towards the end. Very nice trail with the exception of the muddy beginning and end due to their close proximity to the northern edge of the lake/marsh. Really great trail!!

Nice easy trail that with a small section that's part of the Lake Trail and part of the Tecumseh Trail. Numbered posts along the trail point out notable features along the way. The trailhead has the info packets for the trail or it can be found on the website.
