A very short, easy trail. Might be a good one to take a young kid on to introduce them to hiking. Not challenging at all. It's a beautiful spot - lots of old growth trees making it shady on a lot of the trail. It's pretty and relaxing and we've spent a lot of time here. There are picnic tables at the parking area.

Relaxing hike with beautiful old growth trees throughout.

We hiked here a few weeks before Christmas before the snow came. The Interpretive Trail's trailhead was easy to find in the parking lot. The scenery was astonishingly beautiful and the first half of the trail was easy to keep track of. But the further you went into the woods the more you began to lose track of any trail marking. Thankfully, the trail was well worn and we were able to follow the loop out. But you may not want to take this specific trail if you haven't done it before and/or easily lose your bearings.

Short, easy scenic trail. Not the right place if you're looking for a challenging hike, but great for a short stroll in the woods. Lots of beautiful, towering old trees!

Very Easy and scenic trail through untouched virgin timber area, A short hike in a loop. It is slightly downhill so it might be a lil difficult for some elderly but I have taken children as young as 6 around this loop with no problem. Lots of interest points set up by the forestry along the trail. Very well maintained. A nice quick hike, No camping along this trail but there is a campground run by the forestry not far from it.
