Nice trail. Great little hike with the pup. Saw deer and squirrels. Not as peaceful of a walk as you can hear the freeway traffic, but a nice place to getaway in the city.

I do like the trail. I bike a lot so I hit some trail off the original trail and must say I had fun. did think there would be an intense section that I would come across it was pretty nice but short..

One of the best hikes in the area, however you must EDC Every Day Carry every time, being so close to the city with a lot of undesirables and undesirable activity going on in the area, walking the path and come upon a group smoking weed, or shooting up, very common along with running into make shift shelters from homeless people if u go off the beaten path, this is my experience from walking the trail from 2009 on a daily basis entering of of independence ave and hiking all the way up to the ridge across the back trail and around the pond at the Sewell entrance. Remember a female was murdered and dumped in the pond at the same location October 6 2015, do it smart travel in groups and always bring a phone already set for 911

I used to love these trails! A quick hike, hangout, or bike ride, this area of the 'neighborhood' is pretty cool, despite the power plant off in the horizon. The old staircase, has a story of an amusement park, and long before that an Indian reservation. The lake is divided by the dirt walkways. It's a popular fishing spot in the spring but the ponds do grow a lot of vegetation during the summer and fall.

There are some beautiful views of the marsh and you can see a good amount of wildlife. There are trails that suit different levels--a road around the marsh that you can walk or run, with some trails branching off for some more difficult hiking. The only downside is that some of the trails further into the marsh are not being maintained. There are many interesting remnants of Trenton's past scattered throughout, which makes exploring a unique adventure!
