The trail is easy and there is a feeding station you can get food for the fish in the pond for a quarter. Beautiful hike and well maintained. A warning; a suspicious male was seen during this hike. I am keenly aware of my surroundings and suddenly he appeared behind me on the gravel section towards the “train”. The individual went into the bathroom and then disappeared again with no one saying he passed them when I asked on my way back to the car. When I returned to my car he was sitting alone in a van. He quickly drove away and returned a few minutes later when I passed by the trail out of curiosity to see if he had returned. It could all be a coincidence but it’s better to be cautious.

This is a very nice walk in a relaxing environment. Most of this "trail" is flat, although I did see another trail up above our area which I didn't have time to explore.
On one end, is a nice waterfall/water hole that looks fun to wade in on hot days. On the other end, there is a pond/marsh and play area to cookout or jump on the "train".
