No open views from this trail, but most of the lower area follows a stream through idyllic open ferny / mossy forest and traverses a bog just off of Old Street Road. Trails are clearly marked and worn. Several places have young trees growing out into the path but nothing impenetrable. It rained this morning so the trail was a little slick. Some boardwalks and stream traverses were a bit wobbly, so step cautiously: especially if they’re already wet! Would recommend for young families — easy to take this route at a slow pace and choose any point as a turn around destination. A few medium-sized boulders that look fun for climbing on. Trail is fairly flat until it turns away from the stream, but even then there are no extreme grades or rocky scrambles. Waypoints by the pond have small timber benches. The map is actually incorrect between the hill and East Mountain Rd, but the trail is well-marked. When you get to the road turn left and walk until you find the parking lot... the trail continues from there.
