One time I was here and just smelled a lot of dog waste on the path. And I have not been back since. Today was lovely with snow on the ground. Less trafficked than usual. With a good pair of waterproof winter boots, this place is an excellent choice for a wintery walk.

Really nice trail! It was super muddy after a full day of rain, but it made for a muddy good time. Pretty views along the river, keep an eye out for hunters. Will be back!

Visited on New Years Day 2021.. Great view, easy terrain. Following the blue blazes was easy, trail marked clearly. You can really sense the care and maintenance done on the trail.

great trail for distance, not all cyclists and joggers announce themselves when coming from behind, otherwise I've loved it!

Good trail, it was muddy in some areas. Saw squirrels, frogs, snakes, birds, and more. I just wished it wrapped around instead of going back the same way.
