Great trail with scenic views of the water. Trail offers a combination of an easy hike with a few spots that are a little tricky. Very family friendly trail, except parts of the trail are not so easily navigated if you have a stroller.

Hiked this on February 20, 2017. Surprisingly, this trail was very passable despite the 2-3 feet of fresh snow on the ground. Clearly a favorite of cross country skiers, it was simple to navigate and the path was well-marked. There are several side trails that will lead you down to the shoreline and out from under the canopy of the forest. Otherwise, much of this hike is shaded beneath the trees. I would return in summer time to compare.

Nice easy, shady trail that hugs the river beaches for a while. We weren't sure how far you could hike on the shoreline. We walked all the way to the end of the first beach and managed to get back to the road but it was definitely tricky. Stayed on the main trail after that. We took the shorter loop and it took a little over an hour.

Easy part of trail was the farm road. we also did the shore trail which is narrow but doable.
