Not fond of the fact that they paved a trail through the woods but it was relaxing hike

We bring the dogs here at least once a week and do the loop twice. sometimes we'll take the perimeter trail for some extra steps.

It's an easy hike around one lake and two ponds. Good place to teach your kids about native plants and wildlife since there are markers and signs. You probably should use insect repellant.

Good trail for an easy walk. Enjoy the afternoon bright sunny day. Around the lake at the main entrance area lot of dogs in a lot of poop. Not bad though. We will come back to this place again next time for a run probably.

Easy flat walk around the lake. Kids enjoyed throwing twigs into the "waterfall." Not my ideal hike, but the best option within the time and distance I had available.
