Very easy, flat, and well-maintained trail. A great family trail with interpretive trail signs throughout. As mentioned in other reviews, this trail connects with an asphalt bike trail, so be mindful as you walk. Be on the lookout for the deer herd that moves throughout this trail's area, as it contains several piebald (mostly white) deer. The white deer make the herd easy to spot throughout most of the year.

My family has completed this trail numerous times in all seasons, with a full hike taking just about one hour to one and a half hour estimate of this site.

This trail is also a great morning run, but the mosquitos, especially on the wooden bridges, can be an issue in the summer months.

Easy level trail with various loops. It connects with an asphalt trail for bikes so be mindful. If you stay off of the asphalt the trails are fully shaded. Great for dogs on a leash.

The scenery on this trail is so beautiful. But the interactions with automobile drivers was mostly unpleasant, and made me very uncomfortable. Thankfully, that is just a short portion of the ride!

This is a very well constructed trail through a forested area in a suburban area. It is nearly level, and low places are bridged. In some places the trail is very close to back yards, but as it winds around a small lake, you may see many deer, especially on the west side by the meadow. In late summer, you will see mushrooms. The trail shares a boardwalk section with the Capital to Capital Trail, a bike trail that will run from Jamestown to Richmond. ( The trail is wide there, but beware of bikers. The lake and forest provide great bird watching.
