Hiked this along with the MST trail to West Point. The folks at Penny's Bend Nature Preserve are improving the trail, with benches, open spaces along Penny's Bend trail, controlled burns to clear brush, and trimming the trail, although it is a bit overgrown in spots. Saw lots of turtles on logs, and there are a bunch of trees that have fallen across the river in this area. One ding was there were lots of spider webs, and as the trail is infrequently hiked, you need to use a hiking pole or walking stick to clear them or just eat the spiders.
