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!

Hiked this trail with my husband yesterday and found the trail well marked. It is not easy and the moderate rating is appropriate. We took a wrong turn at the end of the blue/red trail because the blue blaze for the blue trail was hidden - that is my only complaint- we ended up following a blue arrow down a cliff which we then had to climb back up to redirect ourselves in the right direction. We will go back and finish the loop next time.

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.

A gem of a hike. Very few people, nice variety of upland woods, cool old roads, great view, historic carvings and a gentle easy pace for young kids.

A decent hike, but note worth the time given the variety of other trails in the area.

Pros: short hike for decent views, cool old ski area equipment, and ability to see the old trails. Also very few people so nice solitude.
Cons: wandering dogs can be dangerous (was attacked on more than one occasion) and the trails are not well maintained. Always bring mace.

Nice easy hike! It follows along a stream and some little waterfalls. I ended up taking blue to blue/yellow to red. There's also a lake, picnic areas and a small beach. :) My dog absolutely loved it too!
