Walked in early October, not really scenic, traffic noise, better suited for dog walking rather than urban hiking.

We call it the rope swing hike . There are two areas with swings and they are both off the path and hard to explain. There are a few short muddy areas.

Nice stroll through the woods, no clear markings on which is the inner or outer trail. People use this trail for trail running or walking. Took my dog no receptacles to toss used dog bags. Nice easy beginner trail for someone trying to get into shape or use to doing trails.

Too many different trails to follow. It was my first time using locator to stay on path and I couldn't turn where it said to. My seven year old didn't really like it either. No really cool place to sit and eat. Not sure if we need to just keep exploring? or move on?

Great view of woods. But trail(s) just take you in circles and leads to nothing.

What was supposed to be a easy 2.1 mile hike turned into over 3 miles following the "all trails" map taking us in circles? There are several different trails on this hike to venture on. Luckily, the trail on the left side of the road was a breeze with zero questions on which way to go. As we ventured across the street to the right side thats when thing got a little confusing? We ended up following a trail that took us through the rustic woods? Trees were down and we were crossing boards over swamp areas finally leading us to the back of the fenced housing area? At that point we turned around and re traced our steps taking us to the main trail. I think this trail should of been better marked and if trees were down crossing the main trail, the county should out closed the trail off. Needless to say we made it out of there in one piece however, were puzzled as to the main trail took us to a area that was a dead end?

Great hike for kids - minimal elevation but easily accessible and a beautiful stroll through the woods.
