A beautiful loop trail with more loop trails to come off to the main trail! This property is well maintained and worked on by volunteers, hard working volunteers! Beautiful rock work, many footbridges, and really neat trail points. A must see, a must hole, and an awesome place for a rugged sprint!
Non-strenuous forest walk with clear trail markers. Whimsical “décor” and impromptu sculptures along the trails make it a very unique—almost interactive experience. A serious hiker won’t find the walk very special, but the upkeep is impeccable and for a lazy weekend stroll or a short escape with the family, it’s an absolutely perfect spot.
Excellent, kid friendly trails.
My previous review wasn't as nice. There is parking for only 2 maybe 3 small cars. The forest is small but it's a fun walk with kids. We played 'I spy ' the whole walk because there is random items in the forest.
Fun little walk. Kids enjoyed the nature sightings- snakes and toads. Some interesting tree groves.
Loved this trail. Family friendly, kids would love it. Not too long and not too short. Highly recommended.

Sept 5, 2012- Great place to bring kids! Came here to do some Geocaching & the kids just LOVED these trails! They were on the look-out for all the fairy/elves houses & figurines- something you would never expect along a nuture trail! The trails are lined beautifully with either rocks or wood & the stone bridges were great- Definally a whimsical trail that is worth exploring!!
A good place to brings kids. Bug spray mandatory! Local scouts built all the bridges. There is a new trail still under construction. The main trail, Albert L. Ingenious trail, goes from Northern ave to Spruce st. Don's trail is located off the main trail and loops around. Both trails have random bird houses and decorations hanging from the trees or little signs and garden decorations along the trail.
A nice easy and really fun trail!!! My favorite for a "quick" walk or a great place to bring the kids on a super cool nature walk! Please keep this place clean and respect it! Such a work of art, lots of sweat and tears went into making this land so wonderful!
