Rocky with lots of roots. Great smooth rocks for a picnic

It is actually an almost 3 mile hike with 466 ft elevation change if you hike all the paths including the two loops (yellow, red , orange and blue trails) to a memorial to a local activist. Trails generally well marked, except one spot on orange trail where mark on left of 2 trees in between split in trail means hang left. Was easy to reorient when I realized mistake on a dead end. Mostly shaded trail great on a very hot day.

Great spot for a hour push, lots of incline and decline, good spot to play on the rocks at the lawn beach as well

It was a nice walk in the woods. The smaller of the two rocks was more interesting than the larger one in my opinion, as it is accessible and not obscured by vegetation.

Nothing particularly special except for peace and quiet. An easy trail with small rolling hills. Be sure to hike all the way to the Donovan Point on the blue loop. It’s worth the limited effort required. Incredibly well signed, a great place to retreat for a peaceful afternoon. Did this during the winter and found it enjoyable; I was the only one on the trail.

This is a basic hike good to exercise your dog or walk off lunch. Took about an hour to complete entire loop. Nothing too exciting to see but good for quiet walk, as its not busy. Very well marked.

It’s a short hike up to a very large rock but honestly across the street is a much better hike. There’s a trail map and has a great loop trail.
