I live this trail. It’s a little bit of an investment of time, not your usual stroll in the park (pardon the pun). The pond adds a nice magic to it all.

Great for kids and dogs, not too much traffic. Had a 4, 6, 10 and 11 year old. Challenging but not too difficult for the little ones but interesting for the older kids.

Nice spot but the trail is a little rough with rocks and tree roots in places.

Easy but long. Did it before work so I think I did half of the pond loop. Going this year to do before winter with my two true friends of mine and my husband. He used to do lots of hikes in boyscouts eagle scout. My husband Brian Durwin loves hikes like me.
