This is a nice short trail and quieter than I’d anticipated. There was less shade than I hoped for but pleasant views and all around worthwhile trek. Bring bug spray, sunscreen, shades, hat...I’ve recently gained a lot of weight and had to stop on some of the ascents.

Sunday Funday, 5/24. A little bit of everything - boardwalk, field, forest, up and down and around the pond. 3.6 miles.

One of my favorite local hikes! It has a great variety of terrain, forest types, and wildlife. Be aware that the meadow portion is often very wet and muddy.

Beautiful! Lots of room to hike and fish and swim. Parking is limited for such a large pond though.

Not the ‘stroll around the pond’ I thought it might be. Lots of varying terrain with ups and downs. It was a beautiful walk with the sun sprinkling in and the boardwalks everywhere to help in the wet areas. I will be doing this again over the summer with the tree cover. BE AWARE- Very little parking. We were lucky to get there pretty early. The sign says if the park is full, go somewhere else. It’s too bad because many of those cars seemed to belong to single fisherman as the trail was empty. It makes me burn a little that families would have to forfeit their hike due to no parking spaces.

Very muddy. Signs say the park will close next week because of trail conditions and to further practice social distancing.

This was a great trail to start off the hiking season with! It was a little muddy in some areas, but that is to be expected right now. It had a couple steep parts before the halfway marker— Nothing too challenging though. The trail was well maintained and the wooden bridges were very helpful along the way!

Facile d’accès, belle petite randonnée tranquille avec un paysage pittoresques. Assez facile, des petites montées mais faisable en famille. Recommandable
