Nice level paved walk most of the way. The unsaved trail is not well marked but it doesn’t really matter.

Nice little hike. We didn’t take the exact route. Almost all is paved except for the far side of Upper Echo Lake. Watch the app carefully to stay on path

Decent hike/walk, to do the loop you need to walk through a few grassy areas that are not marked - if you follow the app it will roughly keep you on path. There's many little bike paths you can follow and then it breaks into one path to bring you back to the bridge. Fun with the pup.

Part of the trail was covered with trees and lots of leaves. The leaves covered muddy spots so be careful.

I made the mistake of not checking to see whether or not this was a biking trail. let me assure you, this is definitely not a biking trail. However, if you're looking to take a nice long walk with a little bit of hiking, this would be an excellent trail for that. It's a great choice if you're new to the area because you really get to see the entire park and all it has to offer. There were a few trees down in the woods and I think we went off the trail in the woods for a little bit because I didn't see any trail markers.

Like others said, it’s nothing special, but it’s a lovely walk to take on a Saturday morning. I went on the weekend after Tropical Storm Isaias and some parts were muddy and there were downed trees, but nothing you can’t maneuver around. I ended up not going to the path behind the 9/11 memorial as my feet already were damp from the first part of the walk. People were friendly and social distanced so that’s a plus.

Lived in the area for 20 years and this is my first time here. Pleasant park on a pleasant day. Not much solitude here, lots of traffic in and around the park. Saw a fox, possibly a coyote. More water than I realized. A fair bit of wildlife.

First to Review

one of the better local parks in the area for an easy walk. Well maintained but nothing really too noteworthy
