We stumbled across this site using All Trails and were glad we did. We were in the area and looking for a short trail run and hike and this was perfect. It is a quiet forested area with opportunities for wildlife and peace. A local poet has posted some of their works throughout the system which was neat too. The main loop is about 1.5 miles and there are two shorter loops so you can easily cover about 3 miles or so if you do all three. We spotted a large owl and some neat salamanders/newts on our run. The trail is well marked and easy for trail running. There is a little elevation gain as well.
Would definitely go back if we are ever in the area again.

An excellent trail that is usually not busy. You start with a strange walk alongside the power plant, but quickly dive into the trees and can enjoy the quiet babbling of the creek running next to the trail. There are a couple different sized loops and they are minimally strenuous, but there are a couple good, short climbs that can get your heart rate up. I would definitely recommend this hike, especially around sunset.
