Fun trail with the kids. Saw a deer with her baby on the trail, came out of the woods right in front of us! Watch out for ticks though. They left the kids alone thankfully, but I found a total of 5 on my legs throughout the hike!

This trail is perfect for my 3.5 year old! Short and flat, adorable decks over pond. However, we never left the gravel path which was decently wide and found 2 ticks on my daughter. Unfortunately, we did have layers of Off on and it didn’t keep them off. We won’t be going back. I’m very sad because it was the perfect place! It is very family oriented so I wish it would get treated for ticks.

This trail was great! Weather was in the low 50s, sunny with a lite breeze. Would do it again! We took our 3 1/2 year old out and she had a blast, not to long, not to short.

Easy trail. Looks like it will be nicer when things warm up and wildlife becomes more active.

What a beautiful hike this morning. Walked right up on a doe who didn’t even flinch at seeing me. She just stood there and went on eating two feet from the trail. The views of the pond and wildlife were incredible. Recommended

Easy hike through fields and wooded paths. Many interesting places to stop along the way. The only downside is it’s more used during summer so go expecting to see many other people. Or go in winter when it’s just you and glorious nature.
