This is a level and leisurely hike. The area around the ponds is a popular destination for dogs. There is also a lot of beaver activity along this area.

Well groomed trails with forest and ponds. All flat. Loose dogs that were well behaved.

Beautiful 50ish degree day. Moderate number of people out on this pleasant, suburban trail. Check out the beaver lodges in the pond!

Excellent place to walk especially if you have a dog or just love seeing them along the way. Options to go 3.2 miles through wooded area or stay close to the pond for a shorter more picturesque stroll. Wooded area had ours if rocks and roots but not terrible to traverse. Will be back.

The trails are well taken care of and very wide. Lots of memorial benches to rest on all around the pond. Very pretty during Autumn, the leaves were starting to change. Lots of wildlife around including turtles and frogs. Great place for dogs except the water is kind of dirty & swimming is not allowed! Definitely will return for other trails in this conservation area.

This place is beautiful. Love to walk my dog here. Very easy and serene. When you first enter there’s a line of majestic pines along the trail that never fail to awe. There’s an easy loop trail around 2 ponds and a short walk in a meadow. Then there are longer hikes into the woods.

Easy hike. The trail is beautiful, met quite a few people with off-leash dogs along the way, all very nice and friendly. There was a kids camp there as well so pretty busy, especially for a weekday. But beautiful area, easy, scenic hike. And very dog-friendly but make sure your pup is ok with meeting dogs because there are a lot of them here!
