Not very busy. Nice town forest but isn’t marked properly. There is an area where a lot of trees were cut down and left all open/ruined.

It appears at some point care was taken for the trails but, the was long ago, sadly. Very poorly mark and not maintained.

They are selling all the hard wood to unscrupulous lumber people and it has been massacred. It’s like a bomb went off. I’m very disappointed in the town/state for doing this.

Heavy construction on the biggest portion of the loop. There are several other trails within the “loop” that are available but are not marked in this app. Overall a nice walk.

Nice easy stroll in the woods over bridge and intermittent stream. Well marked loop trail. Nice end of day hike.

In the summer months, it can be buggy, but the trails themselves are very nice. Be sure to take a look at the map before you head out on the trails, the trails are not well-marked. I have learned my way through the trails, but my first few times out, I did get lost once or twice. It's not too big though if you do!

Very easy trail system. A go-to when I need to be in the woods as it is very close. At times well marked however the back trails, it is easy to get confused and end up on the wrong trail. I don't feel that this is problematic as eventually, you will hit the main trail. I was here last week and the bugs were swarming. It made our nightly walk intolerable. Typically it isn't this bad.
