This is a nice 2 plus mile trail. When My kids were little, my wife and I would push them in the stroller. Now we go out there to enjoy the nature and get a light but rigorous walk. It is also o good place to break in hiking shoes unit you are ready to do more difficult trails. the wildlife is beautiful as you will see birds, deer, wild turkey, and other critters. Its great not having to deal with dogs on the trail (and this is coming from a dog lover) when you are trying to walk fast.

Great paved trail. Easy for kids with informational plaques along the way. There was one spot that was flooded over, but overall an easy and nice walk.

A great loop trail, paved all the way around with little if any incline. Scenic as it makes it way around a small lake. Occasional sightings of heron, deer and turkey. Fun family walk to burn off some energy for the kids. Playground at the trailhead. Good to stretch the legs.

Paved, easy trail. Shade throughout the length of the trail. Best for kids, and people that want to just stroll.

Did this trail directly after doing 10.1 miles back and forth on Bryant Grove. At this point my feet are hurting a bit and I was disappointed after my prior boring there and back. I have to say, this trail I think is way more indicative of my home state than Bryant Grove. You need no markers, as it's a paved path, but along the trail there are markers that give you info on the plant life, which I thought were kinda cool. I took a leisurely pace on tbis one as much for my feet as for the informationals. Watch out for the ladies who look like they know that path by heart. You just might find those old birds lapping you while you take in scenery, like I did. :)

Very beautiful walking trail. Use bug spray before you go if you are prone to mosquitoes attacking you.

I enjoyed this trail so much this morning! Granted, I went early (around 7:30 on Easter Sunday), so there weren't very many people there yet, which is part of what I loved about the experience. It was so peaceful and serene hearing all the different birds chirping, the water lapping at the lake's shore, and the nice breeze blowing through the trees.

Please note that this is more of a walking/jogging trail than it is a hiking trail, because it is paved with little to no elevation changes. However, it's perfect for those who require a less strenuous hike. The entire path is surrounded with beauty, and I absolutely loved the long, wooden bridge that crosses the lake.

I would love to walk here every single day, and I plan to bring all of my family and friends who come to visit me out to this trail in the future. :)

Beautifully maintained trail that is great for kids and especially if you have a stroller. One of our favorites when we go out as a family.

Very easy trail for all skill levels. It was raining a light misty rain so we chose this trail because it is asphalted. Nice little trail around part of the lake.
