Nice, easy and pretty flat but surprisingly nice woods.

As of October 2018, the bridges were OK and it was a nice walk through old woods. Not terribly remote but very pleasant. Not at all crowded.

Wheelchair accessible trail (paved) with easy but nice views considering, suitable for rehabbing folks who want to get outdoors.

Very disappointing in that two bridges are out so you can’t complete the loop. But it is very beautiful, if a bit noisy with neighborhood sounds.

It has the potential to be very nice. Old growth trees and some nice trails with a few easy hills here and there. That being said, I don’t believe I will be back to this particular park. Half a dozen bridges are unusable. If you live nearby and need a woodsy break or have children, its playground is nice. In all areas I could still hear traffic, power tools and a very loud barking/yelping dog. Not the escape I was needing.

trail is only 1 3/4 mile as posted. Not 4.7 as the description states.

the trail is not 4.7 miles as the description suggests. it is posted as 1.75 miles but my app showed closer to 1.9 miles. nice well groomed, family friendly trail.

I loved the fact that me and my dog were the only ones there. Probably the time of day and time of year but I'll still take it.

An oasis in the middle of town.

The trail was nice. Several of the exercise stations were either missing equipment or completely overgrown. It just looks like it needs a little maintenance and it would be a lot more fun.

Probably the nicest woods in the area, some very old trees can be found here.
