Beautiful trail to do with little ones. We only went about a mile in and headed back but we’re able to go up a small view tower to check out the view. Saw plenty of small wild life that kept the walk interesting!

The trail is overgrown and single file. Went about 1 -1/2 miles then turned back.

Very nice trail. Lots of biodiversity. Lots of woodland flowers and birds. Some muddy spots, but that is expected in a wetland. Would recommend for plant and animal enthusiasts.

Beautiful trail! Some parts were muddy, but of course it was expected as it rained the night before. Easy, beautiful, lots of scenery and wildlife. Got some great pictures of the frogs, snakes, and chipmunks that were running around.

Been hiking here since i was little; live right down the road. Always loved it, if anyone has kayaks I recommend exploring the channels to see the american eagles nests. Awesome experience.

Came to this trail to run and had to leave within 10 minutes because it was so overgrown and had LOTS of bugs.

Unseasonably warm day so we headed out for a quick hike/walk and a wine at the winery. We'll, the winery is closed until April 22 unfortunately. This is an easy trail but know that in parts there are partially sunken railroad ties and roots that cross through it. Still mucky mud in a few places but still pretty and peaceful.

Unfortunately the trail was flooded out more than I was prepared to attempt to ride thru. It is a wetland area, so there was often water on both sides of the trail and sometimes on the trail itself. It's pretty flat, so that's not a challenge, but there was a really bumpy section for which I was grateful to have full suspension. It's a beautiful place much more fitting for a kayak or canoe or a casual stroll.
