It’s a nice easy walk for a weekend walk. Easy to access, and kid friendly. There’s a man-made lake that is good for fishing. Though there are families hanging out at the lake, it’s still a mostly quiet walk once you move past the water feature. Very pretty little creeks crossing through the trails.

Good trail, not too muddy even after a night of moderate rain. Lots of little creeks and wildlife to see.

One part was overgrown. Couldn’t figure out where to cross the loop so went back the way I came but still nice!

Trail was fun- wish I was prepared shoe wise! Had to turn around because the trail went from dirt to completely rocks. Make sure you wear bug spray!

Trail is scenic but there are some parts where there is overgrowth and trails are narrow. We used the map on the app to help us navigate. Trail needs better marking.

I'd definitely recommend this trail to everyone. One of the easiest trails I ever did. Good serene views with lakes in between where you can fish. It is also one of the safest trails as it has wooden railing in places where it could be slippery.
