Unfortunately the trail was flooded out more than I was prepared to attempt to ride thru. It is a wetland area, so there was often water on both sides of the trail and sometimes on the trail itself. It's pretty flat, so that's not a challenge, but there was a really bumpy section for which I was grateful to have full suspension. It's a beautiful place much more fitting for a kayak or canoe or a casual stroll.

Nice views took my 10 year old son on a bike ride some of the man made wood walk paths are hard to ride and missing some planks in a lot of places but over all it was fun and peaceful lots Of thorn bushes so make sure you wear long pants

Beautifully peaceful in any season. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an easy, calm adventure with breathtaking views. Animal friendly as well!

Really unusual, serene, beautiful wetlands. There are a few places to put a kayak or canoe in, but don't be dissuaded by the heavy plant growth in the water. It can slow you down a bit, but there are plenty of clear area Hus as well. In general, the waterways are narrow and windy, and the views are lovely. Bring a camera and binoculars, as there is much wildlife to be seen. If you're looking for something a bit different from navigating a lake or river, this is definitely worth a try. Great place, and please remember not to litter. Safe trip!

A peaceful place to kayak. It's so quiet we could actually hear the wing beat of a blue heron as it took off. The channel of water meanders slowly thru lush vegetation all around you.... A really unique environment.

We horseback ride there all the time. It is a great linear trail that is about 8+ mile loop. And a nice stop at the Basha Kill Winery for lunch & a glass of wine!

I kayak, hike, and horseback ride here. It's an amazing place. I do an 8.7 mile loop but there are a bunch of options. A hidden treasure. Lots of birds and wildlife.
