Absolutely stunning and beautiful trail/s. The markings are not the best, but I found that when in doubt, just follow the MTB trail. The trail is labeled as moderate but I noticed from the Westchester MTB site, some parts are advanced. Be careful runners, there were a few large potholes camouflaged on the more technical portions with plush grass. Also, there were parts of the trail that seemed very tough for a runner (you fare better by walking or biking). This caused me to turn back a few times. Finally, like most trails, expect to climb and climb some more. This park felt really safe. I loved this Park and will visit again...and again!

I found the recording for the 5.6 mile path left me less than confident. It exposed rooms for improvement in the recording. For example, some directions vectors would improved navigation immensely.

Also an option to mark areas that appear vague such as intersections or bad trail segments.

The views along the trail are very good; scenic deeps words feeling with so many fallen trees makes it look like woods less traveled.

A lot of the path is used by mountain bikers and also makes good sections for running.

The 5.6 mike recording is made up of some windy segments that appeals more to bikers and to hikers feel maze like. I might suggest walking one of the recordings made by other colleagues.
