This is a great trail system that is wide and open. This has really neat old foundations and wells. They have bridges and walking boards in spots where there is water. Great views we will bring our kids and dogs next time. Some of the trees look look like they’ve been around for 200 years, very old forest.

Took my daughter here on a short walk after school today. The crew here has done a great job this summer placing planking over wet spots and adding new bridges to the Blue Trail. A very enjoyable walk in the woods.

Great loop system! Bridges, a stream and great variety of length on a handful of trails. Definitely coming back!

Great walk/hike. Paths are well marked and clear. Very cool to see the building remains and lots of beautiful streams. Few wet spots, but not bad at all. Bugs aren't terrible if you keep moving, but I'd recommend bug spray.

Did a short walk here this afternoon. The white trail is in great shape, but they've roped off the side trails (orange and blue) due to muddy conditions. I imagine they'll open them up once it dries out a little.

This is a great wooded area that is well mark park, which I appreciate. It has easy trails with some wet spots to jump over. You need to watch where you're walking because paths have tree root stumps and rocks protruding with some regularity that will trip you. This adds to the hike. People take good care of park.

Walked the white and yellow trails early this AM. White trail was dry and there were a couple muddy spots on the yellow trail, but they were easily avoided. The warblers were out this AM as well as the trout lily and trillium.
