first time walking this trail. in the midst of some construction but still nice views at the benches and half the trail is uphill for a somewhat moderate challenge

Easy walking trail. Good scenery with the bridge and the Pine Forest. Constantly changing over the past four years with the brush being cleaned up.

An easy walking trail, but most of the time, it is narrow and the brush is relatively high, so IMO not very scenic

Nice trail for families. Dog friendly as well

not worth it at this time,may 2017. although it's nice to hear all the birds chirping and the sounds of nature, the trail went from grass and,almost invisible and didn't know from time to time if you still were on a trail to extremely muddy and,big branches and tree trunks blocking the so called path. a number of sections where all the trees had to be cut down,probably for a good reason but very unappealing and sloppy looking to hike through. came back with my hiking boots extremely muddy. in my opinion, very little here is being taken care of,sad.

Great hike through various habitats.

great for watching local wildlife. a nice quiet walk in the woods!

Great fall colors and tall grasses. Nice visitor center with a lot of taxidermy. They also have binoculars you can borrow but I suggest you bring your own.
