Wright park is a top 3 section of the TAM. I love the lower (white) trail. Has some cool bridges to cross and multiple nice spots along the creek that are very remote. Currently more dry than the other two upper trails

Great trail for relaxing easy hike. Scenery was beautiful especially return portion along creek. Extent hike a little further to bridge. Worth the extra trek! Trail is currently snow covered with icy areas but very doable.

Easy trail. A bit muddy and over grown at the moment but great wild flowers and views of the creek. All the trails are well marked and do often cross each other, so pick one and stick with it

Beautiful, easy to navigate and well marked hiking trail along Otter Creek. Trail is easy to moderate in spots, lower elevations are quite muddy in spring, but overall a beautiful hike. The dam and waterfalls are spectacular when the water is high!

Very pleasant hike. Fairly easy. Still pretty wet along the creek as of 4/22. Plenty of little bridges and short cuts to avoid most of the water though. Great for the whole family.
