Very easy hike with a little bit of a climb in the middle. Pleasantly surprised by the lack of bugs! We did frequently hear gun shots firing off in the distance but other than that it was a pretty and quiet trail. Also, you will completely lose cell service, so be warned.

Perfect hike for small kids. There was even a small play area for them by the parking lot!

Enjoyable hike, a little muddy mid-March, expected it with the snow fall this winter. Loved the parking, restrooms, and easy trail markings.

I walk my dog on this trail every weekend. Nice easy trail for my young pup. Hoping to hit harder trails as he matures. It’s nice because you can visit the nature station and trail house across the street before or after your hike. Site also has nature friendly composting toilets and wash station near the parking area. All around very nice setup.
