Nice trail. Easy walking. Good variety of scenery. Trail markings are so-so, but the app kept me on track

Lots of shade and easy to run. Ground is generally level.

Nice walk. The trails are not super well marked, however. There are lots of side trails that split off and it is unclear which way to go.

I liked this trail. Thank you to everyone who takes care of it. It was an easy hour and a half hike. Lots of bugs though so I recommend spray, long sleeves, pants.

First time walking this one and it was awesome . Main trail is a loop but lots of side trails to explore that all lead back into the main loop. This would be a trail that’s beautiful in all seasons. Lots of wooded areas, small up and down hills. Cars in parking lot but didn’t come across anyone in them. Pretty big, wide spread area. Definitely recommend

Great easygoing walk with varied scenery. I was initially sceptical because the entance had dog poo every few feet, but that cleared up and it turned out to be quite private. There are more trails than what the map shows and even though there were five other cars in the parking area (max capacity) we saw no other people. We, however, did see a fox! Nice afternoon activity with the dogs. We will definitely be going back.
