Its very pretty, with lots of little breakoff trails to the water. Only caution is many dogs off leash which can be nerve wracking. Ive ducked and dodged with my own on leash dog several times because of off leash dogs who seemed to not have much training. If its a concern Id say off season or during the week to avoid the bulk of traffic. At least directly around the pond. Its a very nice hike and even during the peak of bug season I didnt have many problems.

Walked with my two dogs to the pond. As you can see from my photo there is a mud and stick dam. It was leaking and ready to burst. If it had let go me and my dogs would have been swept away. My 20 lb dog would not have serviced. I will never go back. The leaking mud stick dam is not visible until you are right in front of it. Scary, stay away!

Very pretty wooded trail, easy to maneuver. Wasn't super clearly marked, but the map feature on this app made it easy to figure out where to go! Bring bug spray if you're going in the afternoon.

No markers on the trails so it was a bit difficult to follow but we still had fun exploring! Easy enough for the kids to keep up with us (5 and 7 year old)
