it is a nice trail along a lake. I would give it a higher rating if it wasn't for the goose problem there. there is so much goose droppings that it is not a very pleasant walk.

Trash everywhere, people smoking weed, which is within seeing and smelling distance of playground, fish line and fish hooks tangled in the grass in clear walking path. Didn’t even do a mile and turned around. Don’t go.

As noted by others, path is paved, however there is flooding and puddling that interrupts the experience. The low spots are incredibly obvious and a huge failure by the engineers responsible for the design. We've lived in the area for 23 years and when they revamped the lake and trail, there was a clear opportunity to get ahead of this and now they just leave it as-is. Our tax dollars hard at work. Camden County fail. Any heavy rain leaves small ponds across at least 4 key areas of the foot path. This path is not a "hike", but a stroll, jog or cycle. There are a few areas to throw a ball or frisbee around as well as a few picnic areas. The playground was updated some years ago and in that area is a small pier for kids to check out the waterfowl.

A great trail for all ages that provides a number of activities. For runners, the path was paved and leveled. For wild life enthusiasts, there were numerous song birds and water foul that can be found on the lake. For families, the park provided a couple of play grounds(closed at the time of this posting) along with numerous benches around the circuit. The only downside of this hike was the end where the trail appears unfinished. The path was flooded and we had to find a detour back through a neighborhood. Regardless it made for a great day out.

Nice trail walk in the pave park until you begin journey back. It turn into a muddy reed filled thorn bushwhack. Get to sidewalk ASAP. Seemed weird walking behind people’s houses. I would make this a back and forth in the future.

Not bad for my first time. It was more muddy than I expected considering most of it was paved, but good overall.

Not bad. Could be A LOT better if it didn’t have all the geese and puddling. Drainage and trail clean up could be useful.

I take my dog here all the time! There are a lot of off-the-path trails up through the woods around the lakes.

Great place for a leisurely walk. Little over 3 miles. Witnessed a lot of wild life. Will definitely go back. Was very clean.

I like the scenery and there are stairs for an added workout. I was disappointed there was so much glass from beer bottles. Didn't want to take dog where I seeing broken glass on the trails.
