Nice trails, easy to follow. A little wet and muddy in spots, but it is Springtime, so it's expected. Most of it was dry, though. A couple of small ponds with benches to sit and enjoy the view. An old cabin, old foundations, and a fireplace add a little more interest to the hike, easy to check out all the trails in an hour or two. We'd go again.

Short and relatively flat with a variety of forests ranging from newer to more mature. Paths were snow covered but well marked and seemed well kept. Multiple options depending on the length of trip you choose to take. This pretty little path is perfect for all hiking skill levels. We hiked in the winter but I am guessing that spring-fall hikes would allow for opportunities to see birds and wildlife.

nice day for a walk with the dog. walked as much of the perimeter of this trail as I could. a bridge has been removed on the Blue Trail so I couldn't finish walking that. still being a little early in the season, trail conditions are icy & mud with some dry spots. nice easy walk. saw a cross country skier there who seem to be having a good time. scenery is very nice but will be much better in the spring/summer months.

Nice day for a walk today. Trails were in great shape. The only drawback was the amount of poison ivy. At least it was in it's full fall color and was easy to spot. The problem was it was everywhere. We checked out the Saratoga PLAN letter box station and made an entry in the book. Looks like the mice chewed through the plastic box as everything inside was damp.

Decent walk for the dogs. Could use a little more upkeep and curation.

I wouldn't consider this trail "moderate". It definitely should be labeled as "easy". But overall a very nice trail.

Quick half hour trot. Be careful pulling in during the winter months or you may lose a muffler. Very short, never steep, mediocre sights.

Really had a great time yesterday! Multiple trails, very peaceful with a good amount of natural water throughout. Dog friendly environment! My dogs made lots of friends.

The paths were super narrow. I probably went through a thousand spider webs. I do not recommend taking your dog with. It was too narrow to walk side by side. It was nice how there were markers on trees to show which path you want to follow. I did the yellow path.

Very easy and cute walk through the woods. A little bench overlooking part of a river, very serene and peaceful.
