Beautiful, easy, paved trail. Great for kids (strollers) and those with mobility issues. You can "hop" off the trail to the "amphitheater" area which is creekside and/or meander off, down to the creek in many spots with out major risk. There are some large, fallen trees and serene creek views. Go in the evening, look for deer. In fall, enjoy the giant pumpkins in the path :)

We had a newborn so we were looking for a great paved trail that still had a natural feel. This had both and was perfect for our little family! The two mile loop was just enough to get moving but no too overwhelming.

Paved path that meanders through some wooded areas, a lake, creek, fields and some farmland. Easy walk, very scenic. Lots of birds, deer, turned and even a rooster. More sun than shade.

Pretty idyllic end to a date night after a full belly from The Village Anchor. Somewhat busy walking/running path (not trail), but lovely to encourage good digestion and fresh air. Worth a visit for a sweet walk.

Nice walk. Not really a hiking trail but besides it being busy with many walkers it was nice ! Saw a lot of wildlife :) I went off the paved area and ended up at a small stream .

Great paved trail. Great spots to look out on the water and watch the fish. Easy walk, fairly flat.

It’s a nice paved trail within a city. There are a few areas to explore off the paved path.

Nice walk through a park, but I definitely wouldn't call it a trail. It's a paved walking path. Pretty trees, lots of birds, beautiful little creeks and brooks, wild grapes... lots to see, hear, and photograph. The other gets really busy - even at 7am on a Sunday, and nobody is wearing face coverings, so caveat ambulans (Walkers Beware). We put in 2.3 miles total, exploring some of the small side shoots to the lake and other areas.

Known for it's wealthy residents and citations to non-residents, I was too concerned about inadvertently stepping out of line to explore all the side trails Beautiful area, only complaint was that the only 'marked' trail is paved. Would like to see a natural trail labeled

The trail was fantastic! We were able to see quite a few different birds: cardinals, bluebirds, finches, and even a hawk. I look forward to coming back when the trees are more in bloom.

This trail is mostly paved with a few options to go off the pavement. Pretty walk that is suitable for everyone. Quite a bit of people were using it and very dog friendly.

Love this trail. I have walked it many times with my dog and he loves it too. Great walk in the spring, but bring binoculars! There are some really beautiful birds to be seen! Also a very good restaurant right next to the trail. My family and I often eat there and then go walk the trail afterwards to work off part of our dinner. Very fun and family/pet friendly.
