I’m a beginner hiker. It was a very easy trail to follow. The lake was pretty disappointing cause it was so nasty. The waterfall was nice to see but I would love to come and see it after a rainfall, as there was not much water “falling”. It was about 1.5 miles and took me about 45 min, even with stopping. I would definitely hike this trail again.

Trail was nice. Didn’t walk the entire loop because the waterfall was dry. Figured I would come back after some rain.

The trail was great but wear bug spray, mosquitos are bad if you stop by the water. I would do this trail again.

So super beautiful and amazing pond and lily pads with a surprise waterfall! You can see fish in the water if you have sunglasses and the trail is largely mulched, plank board or rocks and we managed easily without our all-terrain double stroller. Great family adventure! Wher nature center currently closed and they do ask for 3.50$ donation with a pay drop box our front of center.

The trail is in great shape, lots of woodchips, bridges, flowers and a few butterflies! We also saw ducks and a frog on the pond. Great hike!
