Great light hike. Loved the historical park and beautiful little trail near the steam that leads to the spring.

The Council of Trees trail is a wholesome year-round trail, good for a quick workout or a leisurely walk, and fun for families, couples, singles, and pets. :-) Be warned, however, that the park closes VERY EARLY during the winter season. A nice hike nonetheless!

I'm usually the type that likes to feel like the hike has paid off, with a huge waterfall or something. In this case it's pretty much just a walk through the woods. I took my 8 yr old because she said she wanted to go backpacking with me and I am trying to get her some conditioning in. It's amazing, she did this and then ran to the bathroom approx. 1/8 mile, and you take her in a store for 5 minutes and her legs hurt!

I have a hard time deciding whether or not I like this trail. It's pretty quiet in the forest, but there really isn't much to see. The trail is mostly made up of rocks, and tree roots, so watch your step. I really liked the overlook. There was even a picnic table, next time I'm bringing my lunch with me! So is it awesome? No. Is it the worst? No.

P.S. I love the trail sign! It says the trail is 1.7 miles, and hiking time is 10hr... I really want to know how you take 10hr to do that hike.
