Great snowy hike today. We parked in the commuter lot, crossed the street and walked up a side street to find the trail head. It was easy to find and everything was very clearly marked. We will definitely go again.

Nice trail, not a lot of traffic. Beautiful trail for colors in the fall. Family friendly, took a bunch of kids ages 8-12 and it wasn’t too strenuous for them.

First time here - we (my puppy and I) loved it!

This trail is outstanding. It's relatively easy with some actual hiking involved as well as some walking on an old road. The overlook is just ok. Moderately traveled. We loved it! We'll be back for some trail running! (Leave the old dog at home, maybe my husband too)

It was clean, quiet, and peaceful! I went in a weekday and did not see anyone! A great place to train for longer hikes. There is an overlook that is pretty nice! A well marked, loop trail. An easy trail, good for all levels!

Beautiful nature preserve. Hikes aren’t too strenuous. The trail map I was given wasn’t really a trail map so I had to explore for about a half an hour before I found the real trails (lots of smaller trails for kids right behind the center). Once I did, I was very pleased with the scenery and the level of difficulty.

Trail around Bennet's poind is one of the most beautiful in the area!

I am new to trail running and loved this! I would actually consider it easy,. I followed the yellow trail and it was clearly marked. I like the wooden signs that tell you all the trail names, I would’ve taken some but was afraid of getting lost and not knowing how far it was. I wish there were maps along the way.

To make this trail a loop, there was a junction with another trail that was not clearly marked. We ended up going back but loved the trail otherwise. Will defiantly return to figure it out ( but with more supplies!)

Love this place. Easy hiking and beautiful scenery.

Nice hike. there are multiple colored trails to follow to make it a little longer.

Easy to walk. Nice view.

Great hike and beautiful views.

Great trail! Lots of mileage and felt very safe with all the people/dogs

Huntington offers a wide range of trails from easy to difficult. Only setback is that it is too popular .

Parked on SW Main st. In Douglas at the end of High st. Nice loop, mainly flat with just a few elevation changes.
Oak forests, rocky trail, old homesteads, nice walk/hike.
Really enjoy snow shoeing it in the winter.

Excellent trail on Autumn day. slight ups and downs, no big deal

Great trail! Didn't think I would like it because it is sort of short but there is a lot to see, the beach is great and the view is awesome!

It was nice to say I have been there but I did not think it was anything special.

Poor markers foe trails. Many are missing. With trails covered in leaves, its almost impossible to discern the trails. Alltrails app saved me, allowing me to see my location vis-a-vis the trails on the map and cutting through the forest to reach one of the trails. But in case of some low emergency such as impending rain or darkness, you may find yourself completely lost due to the poor trail markings.
