WalkingGreat!

We used the AllTrails app to follow the perimeter loop, which was a really nice 2 mile walk. The path alternates between shade and sunny spots. We saw lots of birds and several deer. Next time we will try some of the inner trails, many of which are not marked on the map.

This a great trail!!! We went a little off course a few times as it was our first trip and wanted to see more. I took my six year old son and he had a great time. We saw lots of wildlife as well.

Me and my dad we love this place so much. It is very fun! You get to see a lot of deer if you are quite. I love this place so much.

Saw a really cool huge bird (stork?) and a family of deer on our short hike of the wetland trail. Cool little gem! Will be back.

Great place to take the kids! Mainly flat and half the trails are paved. Liked it a lot! Lots of little bridges. Saw a deer and a lot of deer tracks.

We liked that there were different types of trails available. Some were paved (a bit rough in a few areas, but we didn't mind) and then others that were dirt. We prefer dirt/rock trails, so it was nice. We also liked the bridge that went across the pond. The trails are well maintained and it's easy to tell which way you need to go.

North part of the trail, that goes by the ball field is closed. Lots of smaller trails that can be combined.

A lot of the trails are paved so this is an excellent place to hike. Unless you actually like lot's of mud, then go to Mohawk Park. :-)

Went walking there about a week or so ago. Did not see any animals. It is a good place to walk as there are small inclines to add to the excitement. Nice ponds to enjoy as well. I cannot wait till the turtles and frogs come out.
