Beautiful trail goes by marshes and through the woods. Easy hike. Dogs are allowed on leashes. Lots of mosquitoes though, so be sure to bring repellent with you.

loved it. tons of small off-shooting trails. easy enough for me to carry my 10 month old son on my back and lead two 4 month old husky puppies, but still enough challenge, distance, and pretty views to be worth it. My wife handled it easily as well.

Easy, wide, well maintained trails. Great for family walks and dog friendly. You do have to watch for roots and large rocks which makes the walk even more enjoyable ('woodsy') but just have to pay a bit of attention as you step. large stands of beautiful old pines.

Great, flat, easy trails - great for people with disabilities! Walked with a service dog team and they were able to do the trail with no problem. We had 4 dogs among us and we had plenty of space; most of the trails were wide enough to walk side by side. Lovely area!

Not a bad walk. It a couple geocaches that were here. I'm sure it will be very pretty once spring is in full swing

Small trail but very relaxing and not strenuous with light traffic and pet friendly. Nice little spot at the top of some rocks overlooking the water.
