Nice trail, poorly marked. Also someone keeps bagging up their dogs poop and leaving it on the trail. How stupid are you?! Now you are just throwing plastic bags in the woods? Dumb people ruin everything...

The trails aren't really trails, they are gravel roads. Wide and flat enough to drive a car down. There are many small trails diverging off but none of them are marked. While on the gravel roads, there is nothing really to see. No ponds, no wildlife. The trails start at the Audubon center and go through some fields. BUT there are signs you can't bring dogs through the fields because of the birds. So if you are bringing your dog, you'll need to walk up the road past the parking area and two houses to get to some wooded trails.

While this is a beautiful hike, the trails were kind of confusing, and the maps did not help much at all. I'm not saying you'll get lost, as the trails are very well maintained and have lots of traffic... but be prepared to realize you have to turn around after going in the wrong direction for 20 mins!

I love coming here with my toddler because the paths wide enough for the stroller. It is a gorgeous place to walk year-round. Make sure bring some snowshoes during in the winter. The snow can get quite deep on the path.
