The parking lot is large enough to fit four or five vehicles, which was a nice surprise. The trails are in need of some spring maintenance (lots of downed trees), but overall they are well-kept. There is one scenic viewpoint (which is beautiful), and a few water features -- otherwise, it's a hike through the woods with some short yet fairly steep climbs and descents. I was disappointed to see how many people let their dogs do their business on the trail without taking the time to clean up after them.
