Most of the trail is good. there are currently several muddy spots that you can walk around. There is one portion that is closed because of eagle nesting (north part of trail).

Trail is not as well or clearly-marked as All Trails would make it seem. Make sure you print out a map or something. The park doesn't have any useful maps posted near trailheads or any explanation of what any of the trail markings mean.

Nice trail. Very easy and wide enough for a vehicle. hiked entire trail at moderate pace in less than 2 hours.

Nice trail but I got irritated with the poor mapping. Even talked to some employees that said some of the older side trails aren’t listed on the maps that All Trails has as well as online & the printed maps. Not a good idea if you ask me, especially someone who can’t figure out their directions (I don’t have a problem with this) Pay attention to your tree markers & you’ll be okay. If going with your dog bring water, there isn’t much on the trail, especially if it hasn’t rained recently.
