Trail with lovely views of the water. Almost entirely in the shade. Well worn path and easy for me and my toddler to walk.

This was an okay trail. Well-worn so it was easy to figure out where to go. Mostly in the woods but had a stretch along a big field. Views were so-so IMO. Bugs started to come out as we were ending the hike. Brought my toddler who was able to do most of it on his own. There were a few trees down across the trail and a bridge that was broken (but still passable) toward the end. But otherwise it was easily traversed.

Mostly flat trail, had one pretty big hill and lots of roots. Lovely views along the water and some cool little bridges over streams. Not crowded - only saw one other group from a distance. Brought my toddler with me and he could walk most of it (some stretches required hand holding for balance). Looks like it has been well maintained as there weren’t sticks or trees across the path.

Good family trail. Only one tick found. Took the “river” route. A couple of side trails (one was steep) to get great views of river. After initial muddy wide meadow type trails it gets into the woods . Very peaceful and worth it. Easy to find trailhead with decent parking. Dog friendly.

Watch out for ticks! Last year I must have removed 3 dozen,( that is about 36!) ticks from each dog after walking this trail, then another 30 to 40 when I got home! Very nice trail but NEVER AGAIN!

This was a great trail. Very easy (some muddy spots but it was early spring) . It being early spring all the little brooks/streams were running which was nice . This trail has a lot of little bridges which is nice. The big river was running really good. Trail very well marked and maintained. There is one crossing that is little stairs to some flat rocks . Due to spring thaw water running over it but very minimal as sort which was sort of cool. The people that maintain these trails are doing a real good job. Trailhead really easy to find and near other trails.

We hiked this in early spring and found it to be enjoyable the view at the end with the beaver Lodge and the picnic table to have lunch at was pretty awesome

Decent trail. Not as well maintained as other trails in the immediate area but very well marked. I would do this one again later in summer so not so muddy on the steep climbs ( depending which way you go) also unlike the other trails in the area the sign for trailhead isn’t as visible from road side but pretty obvious once you get into dirt parking area. First little bridge pretty wobbly and when coming around the other side no bridge but good rocks to use. I think this trail is a work in progress to turn into like the other trails in the area. Was definitely worth it and would do it again. Next time I do it if i get a chance I will record because felt longer than .6 for sure .

Very wooded. Some interesting old machinery along the trail. Blue blazes easy to spot along the way. Very peaceful. Watch out for ticks. That’s true of most trails I’m sure but we found 5 after a less than mile long hike.

great trail!

beautiful area and beautiful trail. Only thing that gets me is tall grass. My family and I actually got there and there was someone mowing which was nice, but multiple spots where it was really tall grass; few ticks had to be removed and sneakers got soaked.

Nice little hike to do if waiting for a pizza in Belfast.

This map app does not show it but you evidently CAN park just off route 1 so you get the best of the water edge hiking

It's a nice walk in the woods if your looking for a stroll.. it's a side hill so its a good calf workout ..

Sweet trail, nicely maintained. Grateful to have a quick hike close to home. ***note ... there are two different trails near each other. The 1.8 mile out and back is the nice trail,. The 1 mike loop is not well traveled, lots of lumps , bumps and ticks!!!

Short but sweet hike!! Lots of beautiful scenery!!!

well marked, nicely maintained trail with plenty of red squirrels, woodpeckers and other birds along the way. The water's edge location for a significant portion of the trail offers some nice views and sounds to complement the forest scenery.

Nice easy trail, except long part through field. Picked up a tick. Loved the loop through woods. thank you.

nice enough. too much walking in grass for my liking. but overall a nice little hike.

not the best. it's only 1.83 miles and no place to park! not a lake it's a swamp!

Lots of ticks!! Other than that a great hike on a hot summer day. Your dog can be off leash and enjoy a swim along the way!

Very nice bog/Pond area in there. I think they're still building the trails.

Nothing special but pretty well marked and has a good little climb in it. Rocky in places.
