The trails are great. The steps however are terrible. Would give it a higher rating without steps. Should be mentioned in the description.

I combined both of these trails with the Beech Tree Cove and West Hemlock Overlooks. All the trails are very well maintained and great for families, especially when combined with the nature center.

Nice short & easy trail. Not too many bugs which was my main concern. Just wear or bring some bug spray and the bugs aren't bad at all if you're moving.

Fairly short and easy trail. The trail is totally mulch which isn't my preference. Saw some really beautiful deer very close to the path.
This is a great trail for running or for someone with kids.
