Like the trail but not marked very well. Pretty easy unless you climb the hill to Freidt Park.

Trail is easy with some moderate to hard trails off the main path. Well kept. Quiet.

These trails are very kid friendly. We loved walking it today with our 3 and 5 year olds. They had so much fun and the creek is great for exploring.

My dog loves to run up and down the hill at the end of this park. The hill is used for sledding in the winter; however, in the summer it is generally vacant. As for the park itself, there are many ravines that my dog also loves to play in. No ticks in the many times we’ve gone. If you have a dog, this is the place for you!

Poorly marked trail that doesn't make a lot of sense. I'd think it wasn't more than a trail made by animals or water runoff except every once and a while there happens to be a random bench. Be sure to wear boots as there's no way to cross the creek other than trying to walk across loose rocks. Needless to say I slipped and I'm now soaking wet in late November.

Confusing trails and small park but still a nice change from the roads and buildings even for a brief time.

Not enough signs. Very confusing. The first time I went, the fork I chose emptied into a neighborhood. I thought maybe it would pick back up. No. Intering journey back to the car. Second adventure,stayed to the left forks, much longer. Trail became increasing thinner. I kept wondering if I'd wandered onto private land. Decided to turn around when I saw rt224 and homes ahead. Nice creek, and enjoyed seeing the fish. Bring a compass, flash light, friend, and start early :)

Nice hike although I would say there are some confusing trails that may just lead to a neighborhood, seems like a lot of trails were added onto the original trail to connect it up to different neighborhoods, and there is no sign helping you stay on the right path.

Very confusing trail. Parts seem to vanish and pick back up at random. Despite that, its gorgeous and never too busy.

There's definitely a lot of work to be done here, but you can see the potential. There's a few unique hills and bike trails, but it's missing the continuity. I'll also attribute part of that to the winter time and not being able to see some of the trails and such. It's a nice little spot, and I look forward to seeing its growth as well.
