I enjoy this trail a lot because it is easy to walk on. it started walking this trail during my lunch breaks and it lead to walking the whole trail with a friend. We wanted to see other parts of the trail so we decided to start at the section by Randolph Road. We planned on walking for an hour and then back, but ended up walking the entire trail and back. It is great for people of all hiking abilities. The wildlife along parts of the trail is a bonus as well. I often see many deer, squirrels, and occasionally see some frogs.
