Excellently maintained. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because there are sections that are either poorly marked or not marked at all - when multiple trails converge. Otherwise the trail itself and the scenery deserve 5 stars.

Well marked, easy trail. I took my 11 and 7 year olds with me and they loved it. They especially loved the Nature Center play area. We saw lots of horses, too! It was a bit long for them, but there are shorter options.

Was very fun but easily got a bit confused on how to get back. No worries we retraced our steps and we're there in no time!
