The northern park of this trail area is awesome; nice track, ups and downs, meandering thru the wood; the southern section though is quite muddy ... some boardwalks do exist but after a rain it will be muddy and flooded. I wouldn’t recommend the southern area to kids or animals until it dries out.

I'm not usually one to complain about bugs when I'm outside, where most bugs do live, but this place was seriously buggy. I also brought along my small dog and she had a blast and loved it, though there was some Glass on the blue trail so I had to carry her a bit and also some of the boards on the bridges were spaced pretty widely and I had to carry her across so she wouldn't hurt herself. Otherwise an easy, pleasant walk.

I hiked this trail this afternoon with my daughter, It was a great, flat trail with several bridges over the wet spots. It took us about an hour to hike the yellow, blue and red trail loop from the Oakmont St. trailhead. There was no snow or ice in the woods and we had a great time looking at woodpecker holes and climbing ancient sand dunes. The highlight was seeing eleven deer run by us just before we came back to the parking area,. My daughter was thrilled.
