A nice flat rail trail. Takes you to two ponds along the way.

This is a great walk year round. Very icy in winter. Make sure you wear cleats.
Wear neon orange during hunting season, October through December 15. Lots of people with guns.
Loaded with Ticks in spring, summer, and fall, if you go off main trails.
It's 1.5 miles from parking lot to pond. Walk past pond on your right, and go North toward Chester Turnpike in Allentown to see more wildlife.
It's tragic that this area is slated for major housing development. The clean water will soon be polluted and wildlife will disappear. :( Hope it never happens!!

Great walking trail. Plaques were very informational about the area. Nice flat trail. Little hill going in and coming out but not too too bad. Beautiful scenery.

Not as scenic of a hike as expected. Pretty slippery due to small rocks on trail. Not kid friendly really. I'd go back but I'd make sure to not take my kids .

Pleasant flat, wide trail. A few obstacles to make your own fun on.

I run this trail 2-3 times per week. Great trail and easy. Dog friendly for the most part. Can get very crowded. I run it in winter with traction thanks to the skiers and snowshoers.

Hiked today. Was coated with packed snow and some ice. About 37 degrees and only windy as you got around the lakes where cover was scarce.
Great view of the pond at the end of this simple trail. I imagine it's great running after the thaw. Mostly flat. Nothing steep. I recommend this trail.
