Plenty of shade here, went with a child and he had no problems. For me it was too easy and a bit boring, however that is my personal preference and what I am normally hiking is in more elevation, difficulty. But for a nice walk with your kid, this is a good choice. Bring bug spray. We saw a few deer

Nice trail. Quite a few mountain bikers on these two paths, so be cautious and aware on the chestnut trail as it is too narrow to fit a biker and hiker on the trail at a time. Nice tree coverage that protected me from the rain drizzles. Azalea Trail’s creek did bleed over onto the trails; waterproof hiking shoes would be recommended after rainy days. My path was as follows: Nature Center -> Lakeside Trail -> Fern Trail -> Lake Road -> Azalea Trail -> Chestnut Trail.

Lovely easy hike through woods all the way. Azalea ran across a small stream for awhile.
