Really nice park, expect it to be very busy on nice weather days and long weekends in the summer months

Went in November, expected most leaves to be on the ground. Definitely rocky and lots of large roots sticking out. Needed to keep an eye on the ground which was ok because there wasn’t a ton to see. Wasn’t overly challenging, no steep inclines. The hardest part for me was staying on the trail in some locations. Some parts were wide open, others clearly marked, then there were some areas that i got lost (had to follow AllTrails to get back on track). Brought my small dog, who overall enjoyed it, just the parts of the trail that had overgrown or no clear path was the only issue. She loved jumping over the trees that had fallen down. Today it wasn’t super muddy, but could see where that would have been an issue as well. My Apple Watch tracked 3.25 miles for entire trip in about an hour. Overall a success!

I come here often and enjoy it. It is easy, but the scenery views are beautiful, especially when walking along the water. I also have incorporated rock climbing. When you find the right ones you can climb!! Also, there are trails that connect to Haley Brook Farm/Mumford Cove, so it makes it a much longer walk! You just need to know your way around, but markers are easy to follow and read!

easy family friendly trail but heavy traffic.

Did the loop with my dogs, easy walk, and was surprised by the Dog park at the end! My dogs were happy to have some socializing after their hike.

Worth it for the views, but kind of a tedious walk out. I was envying the bike riders.

It’s easy walking trail..

Elements of farm still remnant. Fine diversity of tree species: note the giant old sycamore at parking lot placed by inhabitants of farm many generations ago. Purposeful clearings offer more diversity of plant, avain life.

Comfortable and easy walking trail, great for kids. Unfortunately popular with horseback riders, so the nicest days mean dodging piles of manure. Otherwise nice, some nice historic sites and lovely view from the bluff.

Love this trail. Very easy walking trail, weekends are pretty busy so I prefer to go during the week since I take my dog.

Decent length of a trail with a couple smaller trails on the sides. Once you get to the end where the water is, it's very easy to lose track of time. Lots of rocks , few people fishing here and there. Great for kids and dogs. There's something for every one on this trail!

Decent sized park with wooded walking trails. We went off on one of the unmarked paths near the water which was nice. Pretty flat over all. Good for a short run or walk and easily accesable.

Great 3mil walk. I've done biking here definitely kicked my butt on the incline nothing major but definitely a workout. Dog friendly. Baby crabs on the water. A lot of nature in this park it's always a go to spot for any activity. Seen deers closed to the beach area. There is a cove. Very interesting!

Very nice trail. Lower part is clear and easy to walk. Upper half more rocks, roots and mud. Need good shoes. Nice with a walking stick. All marked with blur trail markers

Great hidden gem. Got to see some deers. Load up on the bug spray. Very well marked and maps along the way.

Too many bugs honestly more bugs than I've ever seen in one place. might be good in winter

A fair amount to explore. Main loop is very easy, however if you decide to venture off you can spend hours running the side trails, just watch out for mountain bikers and the occasional thorns.

Nice hike and beautiful views. Difficulty level- Easy

Overall, very nice trail. Moderately challenging but nothing too difficult. Only major drawback right now is that you will be swarmed by mosquitoes and flies the entire time you are hiking so insect repellent is a must!

Worked great for my 4 year old twins and me.
