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.

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.

Hidden treasure right off Route 80 that I drove past hundreds of times without knowing it existed. Walk through pine trees, has a Vermont feel..then all of a sudden the lake appears. And it is very impressive. massive lake. Water is crystal clear. Worth a trip to Killingworth.

Simple,enjoyable loop by the sound. Great sites,clean, & an outdoor Fitness center that looks new for a bonus workout!

Love this place. Easy hiking and beautiful scenery.

This was a very enjoyable trail with spectacular views of the rocks and cliffs. Some of the trails do go near the edges of the cliffs but there is an alternate trail right behind most of them a few more feet in. Definitely looking forward to visiting again.

Beautiful!

Couldn't be more enjoyable. Nice views most of the way. Looking forward to the possibilities in winter

Great loop! I wish it stayed closer to the water at times

Great place for mudding

Fun trail. Not well marked in areas but overall worth it.

A fun trail. Rock climbing is slippery in the winter.

Easily one of my favorite local hikes, I've returned to this trail time and again over the years. It's an in and out trail so you need only go as far as you feel on any particular day. Great views from the top and many places from which to relax and enjoy them!

Not real path

Easy walk, various loops leading around the grounds, from lake to forest to field. overall, rather quiet with almost no people on the trail at all (went at 2pm on a Saturday). $6 per adult at the time of writing this.

Trails are well maintained and not very challenging.

Nice walk through the woods and swamp. Many foot bridges. Great for kids.
