Decent, easy hike. Good for pets. While the main trail marked here is well maintained some of the side trails seem less so. The birch brook trail was pretty poorly marked when I hiked back in August. I never tried it in winter. Still, it's not a bad place to go for something simple.

One other thing, there is limited parking. You could probably get away with parking on the road.

The trails are well maintained, there are quite a few informational placards scattered about (both historical and ecological in nature), and the skill-level was exactly what I wanted for a "quick hike" with my kids (ages 10 and 15). My only (teeny tiny) complaint is that the trails aren't marked at the junction; thankfully it is easy enough to select the correct trail based on the map.

great walk! 5 women ages 50+ and a wonderful yellow lab thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful hike.

This is a gorgeous walk with a steady, but not taxing upward walk until reaching the hight of land, then a gradual descent upon the return. A real tresure.
