Too many bugs! Bring lots of bug spray. Other than that, easy trail to hike

Trails could have been better marked but it was still enjoyable I'd go back again.

strong 3. Not rating higher due to having to go off trail a little for anything interesting outside the lake/marsh. Good trail for a pleasant walk. Well maintained and clean. Plenty of trail markers but blue is the only one available as yellow and white were closed by National Grid

This is a nice, casual hike, easy for all ages. The trails are well marked and the area is generally very quiet and peaceful. Occasionally friends and I will run through these trails as well for more of an exercise benefit.

Trail wasn't very difficult. We walked the blue trail in about an hour. The red and yellow trails were marked closed. The best part was the pond overlook. Bring the bug spray, tons of mosquitos
