Peaceful, shady trail. I was alone the whole hike on a beautiful fall Saturday morning. A bit of Pine Barrens and wetlands - wooden ramps and bridges to get over most muddy parts I did most of the trails and it took less than 1.5 hours. So nice for a quick hike. Note: no dogs allowed on trails. There is a nature center with a free range turtle. Also plenty of picnic tables.

Nice Oasis in the city. Needs a little work. Combined several trails to form the loop.

Very surprised how nice this place was. Very well kept. Lots of deer, birds, frogs. Some lengths run close to the road so at times highway noise is easily heard.

I'm sure it's a beautiful place to walk. The pictures of the wild life are amazing. I showed up looking to get a good hike in the morning with my dog and I was real bummed when I saw dogs weren't allowed. I had to turn around and go somewhere else

Challenging as described. Really loved the workout and vistas. Serious rock scrambles. I took the 8-mile option rather than the 9, concerned I wouldn't have time. But completed the 8 in 4.5 hours.
