Walking

Parked at N side of spillway for a trailhead. Walked the green blazed nature trail first then joined the blue trail. Water was stagnant but not smelly or terribly buggy at creek beds (plentiful) and beaver pond. Well maintained trail with regard to both plant growth and fallen tree debris.

This was one of my favorite trails. There’s a 1-, 2-, 3-, and 5-mile hike in this area. We did the 2-miler, and it didn’t disappoint. Beautiful woods and wide trail. A few trees had fallen in the path but they were easy to navigate around. Great for kids. Lots of wildlife sounds.
