It wasn't muddy at all. The pond is a gem. Just what I needed today.

HikingGreat!

Very nice escape and walk with my dog. The map at the trail head is confusing and side trails are not marked. I got lost my first time and added about a mile to my walk when I finally ended up on Rte 50 instead of Northline Rd. At least I knew where I was then! I will print a map and bring it with me next time.

Not bad. A little muddy in spots, but that's to be expected this time of year.

Very nice trails, wide although not the best marked - can't really get lost though as the reserve is so small. Traction on boots a must as there is still a lot of ice out there but a delightful 2.5 mile walk on yellow and red trails to take in the pond on a late winter, sunny day. I clean up after my dogs, however many do not so you unfortunately have to watch your step if you are trying to avoid the icy center trail and walk the edges.

The trails are poorly marked. You need the pay service so you can use the gps to stay on the “trails”. The area is easily walkable and mostly flat. Would be wonderful hike if the trails were marked better.

The map is almost useless. Trails are not marked well. This would be a great place to explore if it was in your backyard and you knew it well. For our first time we had a very difficult time navigating a simple hike.

I have been all over in these trails in random patterns... i absolutely love them! Family friendly and can be made to any length you are looking for. Some nice easy groomed areas, some great off the beaten path trails, all around my favorite.

Won’t lie ... buggy and we got lost because signs were down and lots of trail options. Getting lost was a bit stressful so we had to use our gps and listen for road.

Easy nature trail with small sections of roots and rocks to mix it up. Some ground bees, especially if you venture off trail so stay the course. Pond views perfect for morning coffee! Easy hiking with kids. We had 5 with us under 5

Nice trails, well kept. However, it's also very easy to get lost due to limited trail markers. We saw several turtles in the pond. Kid and dog friendly.

Easy to follow trails and some good terrain variation. Nice and quiet on the pine needles. Yellow Trail is kind of buggy.
