Nice easy trail. Mostly shaded, love the boardwalk. Less than 2 miles. I am 55 and go on a hike 1-2 times a month. Did this trail in 45 minutes and that was stopping for 2 geocaches.

Great walk through wooded land around a nice lake. Easy and well maintained.

One of my favorite places in Kent County. There are several spur trails to get extra miles in.

I thought this was a really nice easy trail and if you go around sunset you'll be happy

Really great walk around the lake, with optional offshoot trails.

Very nice trail! Can be a little buggy depending on when you go so make sure to wear bug spray. The red trail is nice but not too hard and everything is well maintained.

Trail was relatively easy except for one steep part on the "hard" trail (red) and it was also very muggy and hot. Trail is gorgeous and the normal lake trail is relatively flat. We hiked the red trail with the blue trail which was about 4.1 miles. Tons of colorful mushrooms!

Great trail for a family hike. Our 5 year old handled it just fine and had a blast along the way. Took us about an hour and a half.
