The trails are wide mown paths at least 6 feet wide. There is a bench in the northwest wooded section where you can sit and rest for a while. There is some forest on this trail, but most of it is in the sun so, it can be a hot hike or horseback ride in the heat of summer.

Pretty but poorly labeled hike

The trail was beautifully maintained with a wide walking path for the most part. If it was summer, you would not have much cover as most of the path is out in the open. We really appreciated the clean restrooms at the trailhead!
My only concern was the total lack of signs. Once you began there were numerous choices and absolutely no way of picking which direction was the listed 5.2 Moreau Creek Trail. Many times there were three ways you could go, two indicated horse trails but never was there a marked hiking trail. It was very confusing and had I not had this app I might still be on the trail
