We hiked this trail in late October, but still enjoyed a beautiful foliage. We imagined this trail would be gorgeous in early spring and at peak leaf turning season.

The path is easy and relatively flat, although there are sections where you have to pay attention due to limbs and rocks. There is a lot of variation of foliage and scenery which kept it interesting and delightful. Would definitely do this again when where in the mood for a light afternoon walk.

Our bonus: when we arrived at the car, I almost missed that there was a frog hiding in the well of our rear tire! We scooched it along with a twig into safety. Check out the photo.

Beautiful water views; mainly wooded. Can be buggy and boggy. Waterproof boots helpful.
