Very easy walk in the woods at lunch time; easy to find, almost right off the Northway. Very nice area.

I absolutely love this trail for walking with my family and dog. It is nice because it is only a 3 minute walk from my house. It is a lot of fun to bike on too.

Nice little trail for the local older folks. Nothing for kids as the "streams" are more muck. Maybe the little ones on their bikes would be nice. 8' wide flat walking trail with no elevation to speak of. Finished in about :15 and went to another trail for a real hike. Pass on this one if looking for a "hike".

Very easy trail, a little bit too short but that worked out anyway. I was looking for a quick loop to walk and just happened on Hayes. Even with the snows we've had the trail was very accessible. I'll be back again.

A nice, easy trail to walk. Hubby has RA but it helped that there were a couple of benches to rest at and the trail is even to walk on. Nice shaded walk, a little buggy..bringing spray would be helpful.

For what it is, this place is very nice. Great for a quick and easy walk or biking. Very well maintained flat paths with shade that are clearly marked. Only con would be that the path sits near several backyards to private homes.

Too easy, very suburby trail, basically backyard of many people. Good for a quick morning walk

Not really much to see and is in residential area. These directions bring yo to the end of the trail which is right next to a home, very odd place to have a trail. You have to exit this area and turn right to where you will find a parking lot for those seeking a hike on this trail.

this small trail is a short loop through a small wooded area. it is surrounded by a lovely residential community. it is open to public, well marked and maintained, and good for an easy, quick, nature walk.

This is a small trail area good for walking with kids or leashed dogs. It's close to a residential area and very shaded by tree cover.
