Well groomed trail. Took the family for a nice afternoon hike. Mosquitoes weren’t too bad; worse in the densely wooded sections. Lake views were obscured by tree growth a bit.

Excellent wooded trail! The path was well maintained but rustic enough, it’s not crowded, has good overlooks, and varies between marsh (with a boardwalk), Lakeview, hills, and flat trail. I stopped my recording stopped because the rest of the loop is within another trail on here.

Great trail. I paved wilderness. No people. Lots and lots of bugs. Will enjoy again in the fall!

Good trail. Not very crowded on 4/5/20. Sunny Sunday. Slightly muddy in spots but okay even for kids in tennis shoes. Nice variety of terrain. Unpaved. Boggy in places with boardwalks/floating trails so could get really buggy later in spring.

Loved this trail!! I can’t wait to get here when it’s dry out. The trails were pretty muddy with some ice and snow, but nothing hiking boots can’t handle.

This is a beautiful trail, very well kept and it has several board walks cross the lake and marsh land with few beautiful overlooks. I would highly recommend it !!

Past trail head it’s all packed earth and some gravel. It’s a great mix of forest and some open spaces. Some of the low areas near the lakes and marshes were a little muddy but not impassable.

A family favorite as it is close to home but quiet enough to feel removed from the hustle and bustle of “suburb/city life”. Various trails boasting different arboreal species makes this park reserve nearly impossible to tire of, and perfect for an afternoon stroll through the woods. Yes, certain times of the year are more dreadful for flies, but it can be alleviated with adjusting your plans to come in a different season to avoid this annoyance.

This trail (set of Tamarack, Aspen, Oak) is a very strange(?) experience. The good part is that it is one of the very quiet places you can be, and enjoy nature in its truest sense. The lake views are excellent, there are signs to guide at every junction, so getting lost is very difficult. On the other hand, be prepared for bugs and insects, they WILL swarm you. It might also give some the "spooky" experience since its very quiet around here

I should have turned around as soon as you hit the tree line and the flies started to swarm...but I didn’t. I understand I’m outside, and bugs are part of the deal - but this was absurd. Swarmed by 10? 20? Flies around my head the entire time. Absolutely miserable. Couldn’t enjoy the beautiful park/trail because I had flies divebombing my eyes the whole time.

This is a very nice park with a good variety of nature. The surroundings vary, including woods, meadows and wetlands. The trail is consistently relatively wide - sometimes very wide - and includes gravel, mulch and floating bridges over wetlands. I'd consider the trail to be rolling, with some short but moderate climbs. It didn't seem all that difficult, but it did kick my behind (and my knee) today. I'm guessing it would be a great place to visit in the fall, with the variety of trees. If you're planning to come with a dog, be aware that dogs are only allowed on the paved paths.
