Markings are pretty good but needed to use app because of leaves this time of year. I wouldn’t say this is moderate but does have some hills. It was not crowded and no one was on the other small trails in the park.

This walk is wonderful on a beautiful day. As other reviewers have said, there is some information about the trail on signs. There is benches, grills, and a children's play area. Currently much of the area is under construction, but that doesn't prevent you from walking the trail. The trail is short and wonderful for people with small children or the elderly. I took my dog to test out some of our hiking equipment. It was a wonderful walk. Please note that there is a fee to park. I think it's about $4.

I agree with Shannon that it was a little boring compared to the other trails in the park.
