At the core, this is such a beautiful trail. You are pretty deep within the trees at all times and there are times along the trail that you don't hear any traffic from the cars at all. The markers are clear and easy to follow. The road at some points can have some oddly formed rocks so I would recommend something with good ankle support. My only complaint is the fact that there are points along the trail that have graffiti and trails of broken glass, bottles, and trash. It is not the entire trail, not enough to make me not come back, but enough to be a bit disappointed in the lack of respect for the environment. Overall, a good trail and would come back.

Went 8/30/2020. First time this trail. Great hike under good weather conditions. Would call it more “easy to moderate” based on amount of rocks and a few steep areas. Some very steep. Mostly easy though. Unfortunately, a small portion of peripheral black dotted line trail along the cliffs by the stream on southern portion was trashed from drinkers with broken glass and beer cans and other debris. First trashy area we have seen in the reservation. Would do it again though with other family members.

Overall decent trail. Difficult to find where it begins initially. Very close to road I’m the beginning as well. Have to cross main road twice but cool water areas. Fairly busy.

It was a really nice trail, any skill level will do. It was muddy because of the crazy rains this week. It has a nice waterfall that my friends jumped in. I only remembered to start recording after a little while. Overall really fun trail.

Really nice beginner trail! Not crowded at all! The only downfalls are limited parking, and TONS of broken glass all throughout the trail. It was almost like someone had a bag of broken glass and they were just sprinkling it while they walked. So, I would just advise not to bring your dog in order to avoid any injuries.

Honestly, this trail probably would have been much nicer if people didn’t smash glass all over the ground and leave their trash everywhere. The stream is next to a road which you hear and see cars drive by. A lot of people were fishing, not sure if they were catching anything though. It has potential.

Can hear the road most of the trail. But was still a nice nature walk.

First to Review

Definitely an easy trail. I would recommend 10 years an older. Some broken glass in areas where kids are hanging out at the higher elevation. Good trail running challenge.
