Love Ashley. Very pretty water views. It feels like you are in the middle of nature, although it is not very remote & easy to get to. You can also take several different paths, so the distance can be changed. When I take the long loop, staying right as you walk in, then along the outer edges & back through the middle, straight, it is approx 4 miles & takes around an hour, walking at a fast pace. It is a mostly flat, gravel path, good for kids and beginners. The geese can be aggressive in the spring w/ their babies, but are generally easy to avoid. Their mess is harder to dodge in the early warm months. It's fun for a bike ride too.

One of my favorite places in the area... Great for families and all fitness levels. Even when parking lots are full it never feels too crowded.

This place is absolutely one of my favorite places for a nice walk or run! I love the scenery and the walk is very peaceful. Never does it get "too" crowded ever!
