I love these trails. They are so well maintained, and extremely well marked. Do all the loops and you can easily over 10 miles. Take one of the atv trails that intersect the trails and you can go for 100s of miles. Rolling hills and a great mix between wide open cross country ski trails, and single track technical snow shoe trails. My dog and I love these trails. I run here 4-7 times a week and I'm never disappointed.

nice, easy, family friendly trail that loops around a beaver bog. Beaver, ducks, Canadian geese, turtles, can be seen seasonally. Note: There is a sign that states no dogs, at trail head.

Went snowshoeing here and it was great! Nice trails that were insanely well-marked. Best marked trails I've ever been on. In the winter, there are 3 trails for snowshoeing/hiking/mountain biking, and there are many more trails that are groomed and for xc skiers only. It was a little icy, so we ended up snowshoeing instead of skiing. The three snowshoeing trails are connected to one another, so you can get some good mileage in if you want to!

Great geocaching trails. Lots of hills. Sometimes has increased traffic requiring dog to be leashed.

Good trail to keep a steady pace on. Is easy when you want it to be and holds the potential to be challenging if you up your speed. A lot of good hills for sprints and I didn't get bored of it. Did about 2.8 miles of it and would highly recommend

Went shortly after a thaw and early parts of the trail were quite muddy and uninteresting, especially in the mixed use areas. The middle distances have been logged in the past, and though it is not a moonscape like some logging areas I've been to, it does have an eery open feeling to it with fairly young low growth. Something about the selective monoculture of mature trees that urks me. The farther out you travel the nicer it is with some tree variety returning. Pretty stream and wetland areas at the farthest reaches with signs of beaver activity. I would probably go back again at some point.

Nice little trail system supported by the school system and great for a wander in the woods with the dogs

It's hard enough for beginners to feel like they're doing great work. It's also easy enough for experienced runners and hikers to make a good time of it.

This is a great easy trail, perfect for a mindless walk. Very well maintained trails and a variety of scenery. I definitely want to come back in the fall,

Fairly easy hike; lots of mosquitos . Which trails are not for walkers a tad confusing, but otherwise it's brilliantly marked. And leashes are provided!

Beautiful trails, well marked and maintained. Great riding for intermediate mountain biking and nice variety for someone just learning to keep their wheels under them. I'll definitely return!

Trails are well-marked and well-maintained, and quite beautiful. Many spots are carpeted with pine needles, which smells heavenly. The network of trails offers some variety, but overall the terrain is easy to navigate.

This is a land trust. It's very well taken care of. There are lots of year-round trail options. We took the longest trail (Moose Odyssey). It was very buggy so we zipped through it pretty quickly. Not much for views, but it's nice to see someone dedicate the time to keeping land open for public use like that. As far as I can tell there isn't much elevation throughout the property, but plenty of little ups and downs.

A very nice place. Trails are well marked and groomed. Could get turned around if not careful. For the most part it is easy to moderate.
