Good for kids, easy and pretty
I did this a couple years ago. It is a beautiful park.
Short trail, very easy, one of our favorites. This park is rarely crowded and the trail is usually empty. Lots of bugs in the summer, bring mosquito spray, not a lot of wildlife - ducks and crabs and occasionally a turtle - but a peaceful short hike. I hike this one with my kids several times a month. We always continue to the small island past the lookouts, although the last time we went the bridge was broken. Hiking that little island is my kids' favorite part. You can also take the trail over to the Ruritan Club.
This is a beautiful spot. It was a beautiful day and the joy of the trails, water, trees, the lookout towers and the atmosphere will pull me back another day.
