I live ten minutes from here and I do this trail at least twice a week. It is a spectacular trail for kids, as there are no sharp inclines or difficult parts and the trail is clearly blazed so you don’t get lost. I took my 1.5 year old son on it last week and he loved it. There are many opportunities to see wildlife on this trail. Everything from geese, snapping turtles, red winged blackbirds, beavers, herons, ducks, and rabbits can be seen very regularly on this trail, especially in spring when all matter of wildlife is flourishing, thanks to the wide range is ecosystem that the marsh/pond provides. The one half of the trail that leads you through woods along the ridge of the pond and it is a great place to see trees fallen by beavers
