It i s pretty, but horribly maintained and marked. We were walking through the woods aimlessly. Would find a blaze marking only to need to turn around because a bridge was out or could not determine where trail went. Do Not recommend.

Not well marked. Ended up walking down lots of open grassy areas. Often times I was questioning if we were going the right way. The highlight was definitely the pond. TONS of poison ivy along this trail also.

I agree with a lot of the other reviews that the bugs and the trail being overgrown and difficult to follow made it a lot less enjoyable. Despite using bug spray I got bit a few times. I did hear some birds singing a few times and the blues sky was beautiful, but overall I couldn’t wait to get back to my car. Probably won’t come back.

This wasn’t my favorite trail. I won’t be going back. I can’t tell you how many spider webs I ran into. The only part I enjoyed was when we got to the lake/pond, which didn’t last long. The trails are not clearly marked. The only reason I didn’t get lost was because of this app. I took my dog with me but with how overgrown it was I wish I didn’t. All I could think of was how many ticks I was going to find on both of us.

Trail is easy to follow, but long pants and sleeves are necessary due to overgrown trail conditions. Not a good walk for dogs due to risk of tick bites.

This trail is not At all well marked and I couldn't even find the trail despite my best effort. At the start of the trail head there is an old Trail head marker knocked over that says Bridle trails but that one is so grown over it's not really accessible. Frustrating!

Unless Google took me to the wrong place, the actual trail only lasted maybe 1/2 mile. And that 1/2 mile was very hilly, gravely, and full of holes. After that that, the trail split. I chose the wrong split twice before turning around, 2 dead ends.... the other split was a road. If I wanted to ride on a road I'd walk out my front door.... I wanted a trail... that was not a trail worth going back to at all....

My favorite park for over 20 years; there are many trails and we hike them all year through sun. mud and snow.

Very pleasant. My friends who live here walk in this park often and were nice enough to share it. It was a beautiful November day but we ran out of daylight.
