This loop will take you down by a small pond where you can watch birds and occasionally see a fish in the pond. A nice stroll and a nice place to visit for some R&R during the middle of the day.

We took out 18 month old here and let him walk the whole path. Really fun and easy for kids. The raised path with side rails makes it great for even the littlest children. you could take a stroller on it as well.

Very cute trail. Nice for a short walk. Went on a very cold winter day, can't wait to go back in the spring/summer. I liked the fact that it was very easy, and had an even wooden walkway/ramp the entire route. It seemed handicap accessible. Also probably very good for family outings if you have a child in a carriage.

Nice walk. Handicap accessible on a nice new board walk. About mid point is a nice duck blind. Many birds and muskrats in the pond so keep your eyes open !
