Very doable for all ages. Plenty of signs at trail crossings and trails are marked according to color. It’s beautiful in the winter, can’t wait to check it out in the spring.

HikingGreat!

Loved the variety and well kept trails. There are alot of trees that are a bit scary , id be careful in high winds looking for limbs and stuff falling . Worst part? A dog off leash rushed me and tried to bite me on the leg. Owners called dog but didnt apologize. If it succeeded in biting me, it would be a bad day for them, as i would have recorded them and imnmediately got the police there

Well marked, well maintained pretty forest trails. The main loop was very busy with people walking their dogs so I detoured onto the side trails, which were much more enjoyable. Parking is limited. Some trails dead-end at private property.

HikingGreat!

The trails are well maintained and flat for the most part. There are several cool rock formations along the way and what looked to be the remains of a quarry. I would definitely come back here to hike again.

Meandering and forested. Well marked and at least one coastal view on Ledge Trail.

A great trail for a casual walk or an easy hike. I like to use this trail to test out gear/clothing to make sure I am comfortable during longer hikes. The main trails are pretty wide and some of the offshoot trails are more woody and narrow. Fairly buggy in some areas. I went Labor Day weekend around 10am and it wasn't as busy as I was expecting. Exited the trail around 12 and there were many more people beginning their walks. If you want something easy to navigate while you get lost in your thoughts, I recommend this trail.

HikingGreat!

Nice, moderately elevated trail for all ages. In addition to the path highlighted in red, you can take some modified trails within the park if you want to cut your hike short. We were there on a Sunday in late August and it was lightly attended.

Very easy - more like a walk than a hike. Extremely buggy. Peaceful for a stroll through the woods.
