We were snowshoeing and the raised path is a little too narrow for pole placement.

The Jesup Trail is a beautiful, relaxing walk through a peaceful wood, along a long boardwalk through a pretty marsh, and ending at the Park Loop road near Kebo Valley Golf Course. This would be a very green area in the spring and summer. I was excited to see so many trails branching off on both sides. I’ll have to go back. The Jesup Trail is perfect for all skill levels.

WalkingGreat!

Relaxing little path for easygoing nature trips. After mid-October things aren’t as vibrant, but there are still a lot of things to observe. Great for photos.

It was just like it was discribed. We didn't have time to do the whole trail because we have a reservation at sandy beach. Due to covid you need to reserve popular spots.

HikingGreat!

Half soft dirt, half narrow boardwalk. The boardwalk area was somewhat interesting with a nice variety of flora, but it wasn't necessarily breathtaking and didn't stand out too much from your typical state park in the Northeast.

Nice and leveled. A bit too crowded at the beginning but once we extended it a bit, the walk back was quite relaxing.

Really enjoyed this trail. After doing some vigorous hikes earlier in the day, it was a nice trail just to walk on and observe nature. The deck that runs along the path is really nice, and the path is really well maintained.

This trail looks like an amazingly vibrant boardwalk in rainy times. I came when it was relatively dry, when it's a lovely boardwalk through the woods.

The path is very good. Scenic too. The wooden path ends after 2-3kms. but the trail still goes on after that. It’s a very nice walk. Go in early — tons of trails to go on after you finish this one.
