Nice easy walk for kids. Can get a nice history lesson and if you're lucky the occasional Civil War Era firearm demonstration.

My family (my 50 year old dad, 11 year old brother, and 13 year old sister) and I hiked these trails for about two and a half hours. It was really easy to follow the trails and there were many maps posted along the way. There are also multiple signs identifying different types of trees and talking about the history of the historical site. We hiked all the way out to Sandy Creek and it was a really pretty view. The beginning of the trail is on a concrete sidewalk but after the first bridge it turns into a dirt trail. We really enjoyed it!
