Very unwelcoming. Parked in the parking lot and was immediately flooded with signs stating "private property", "under video surveillance", and "violators will be prosecuted". Was unable to tell whether we were allowed to be on the trail. Ended up leaving, didn't want to have to deal with any legal issues.

This is a very pleasant trail behind the girl scout center.

A nice little boardwalk trail. This may be the world's easiest trail because there are benches every few feet. At the end is a nice lookout over the creek and wetlands. The lookout is not all that high but it is enough to offer good views.
