A good flat walk with pretty marsh views, but pretty buggy. Well-maintained and very human-friendly; too much so for my taste.

People are pigs! So much litter on the trail and off! Humans ruin everything they touch. Put your dogs on a leash!

Went back today and someone's car was broken into and purse stolen as well as some personal belongings. In daylight. Hm?? Kinda sketchy

Great trail and some nice scenic spots. Lots of bugs but not unbearable. Hundreds of tadpoles visible in a few deep puddles on the trail. TONS of broken glass at the end where the little beach area is. Had my dogs stay clear of the beautiful little area once I realized how much broken glass there was. Overall will go back because it's convenient but disappointed with the upkeep of the beach.

Nice easy walk and very peaceful and very clean. Trail is flat with no roots to trip over.

Easy flat walk. There is even a small place to drop a kayak into the pond. Will definitely return

Great flat trail to walk our small dogs! They loved being able to walk into the water along the way. Good mix of sun and shade.
