Nice trail, very nice restroom/picnic area at trailhead. First .25 loop paved. Could be better marked - found myself turned out initially; however, signage very clear on routes. Moderately traveled, limited parking.

A downed tree at the entrance of the non paved trails, otherwise it was well maintained and a nice quick walk.

WalkingGreat!

My favorite go-to spot! I appreciate that it’s not completely paved. There’s not a lot of parking but I’ve never seen it packed. It’s a great loop for those who get out every day or first timers!

Pleasantly surprised with this nice little easy hike a couple miles from my house. It was muddy with some standing water after a week of heavy rain, but otherwise would be easy enough to run.

One of my hometown favorites. Perfect for an easy hike when you need to get out of the house. Not densely populated, until you get to the park at the far back. Lots of fun sights and treasures.

A lovely park, trails can be muddy. While lightly trafficked, it can be challenging to keep social distance when passing people.

Nice, relaxing, challenging trail. It’s more adventurous and more to see than ones can think. Totally recommend it. Is perfect for an everyday hike. Makes you forget about the city and transport you to a mountain far away.

This is a lovely trail. Yes, there were muddy and wet spots, but I would expect to see that in a wetlands nature preserve. I walked all of the loops in the approx. 1.5 mile hike. I can see where it might get buggy in spring and summer, but again, it's a wetlands area; you should expect that. I will definitely be coming back regularly.

HikingMuddyOff trailWashed out

This trail is gorgeous however, it was really muddy and the maps are very confusing. I got my feet drenched 3-4 times. It is very secluded so go with a friend or dog. I didn’t feel safe there. Also the path was not paved. Which is why I’m only giving 3 stars because parts of the trail looks like no one has walked them in years.
