Nice saunter through the woods. A bit stark and marshy in late March. Can hear car noise from the Taconic Parkway, especially along the upper part of the trail. There are a couple of fairly new-ish looking benches along the way to stop and rest. Nothing spectacular but a good stretch of the legs.

Love coming here it's just a few minutes from home and the trails are just right for a quick hike with the pups.

Very lush hike..... Paths aren't clear. Lots of cars and vehicle noises. Was okay for a quick walk

A nice 3 mile loop with varied ups and downs of short duration. Nothing too taxing, some folks trail run it. A great bonus is that leashed dogs are OK, so my guy Harlan got to make some friends along the way.
No views, but a nice walk in the woods. The trail even has a few newly built benches, ideal for taking a break with the dog who just found such a great stick!
