Went on the Riverview trail which gets very narrow close to the water, but pretty views.

Lots of water access..lots of tree shade in late spring/early summer..fun hike, a bit on the easy side for us, there are some up and down slopes, not too strenuous..beautiful lake with running stream! Great time! Would recommend. (FYI the fishing bank trail was a bit muddy and narrow in spots)

So romantic at around 9am. Very quiet and peaceful and not at all very crowded. The trails were actually pretty easy with a few steep hills. They are marked very well by color. The property also has many areas to sit and enjoy nature, it seems prefect for bird watchers.
