Limited parking but it's a great trail system and well maintained. Hikers and Dogs Only. No bikers and I love it. The area includes all flat earthen dirt trails but even after no rain for days the trail have muddy spots. Not to bad because of all the fallen leaves this time of year. Us seniors love all the foot bridges and benches. The trails along to river are truly beautiful and the river is loaded with truot. Really nice swimming hole down at marker number 9. The large portion of the entire trail system is in the shade. Only the meadows areas are in the sun.

Nice easy trail. Some pretty pastures and water. The markings could be a little better though. It is in a nature preserve and there are some areas that look like trails but are off limits

It's easily accessible and not usually very busy- loops are easy to combine to make a longer run
