nice, easy, pretty. it's also the reservoir trail. Careful if you end up on the gravel rd. turn around and go back the way you came in. it's a long way back to the car on foot by way of the road.

Beautiful scenery, shaded and a very easy hike. Good for a family hike. Not long enough...

This is a really nice kayaking spot. I went here in the evening and I came close to a beaver in the water and two herons flying past me. Part of the cove is pretty close to the highway bridge, so it's not very secluded or quiet near the bridge but well worth the experience.

Very peaceful trail with minimal incline if your just looking for a nice loop. The brook runs most of the trail and allows for dogs to go swimming or take a quick drink. Perfect trail for a simple easy walk.

This is a really nice trail to take a stroll on, follows a brooke. Lots of little waterfalls and wildlife, we saw a beaver. Well marked and easy to follow, defiantly recommended.

Nice short hike and trail - well marked and seemingly lots of trail options. We scared up a Herron (and it startled us) or some other large bird in the brook that the trail follows.
I will say it's not easy to find trailhead if you haven't been there before. We drove past the turn twice and wouldn't have found it without this app. Wish I had brought the SUV instead of the Prius to make the turn into the parking lot but the Prius made it into the parking lot fine. We may not have entered front the best trailhead I'm not sure.

Love this trail. 1 mile, end to end, easy, clean, quite, no motorized vehicle. A pleasure to walk.

This is a great area for light nature walking for all ages. A few things to know; plenty of parking, and if that one is full theres another one a quarter of a mile up the road on the same side but parking there is limited and far less busy That trailhead is my preference and is a small pulloff that dips down steeply to a flat gated area, pull in only as far as your vehicle will permit and use caution when reversing back to the road. At the first reservoir, don't bother crossing the damn, you will find yourself with wet feet and the realization that there is no trail at the end of it. If you bear right at the first reservoir and proceed across a wide footbridge to the second one, adorned with an old brick pumphouse, bear left at the junction and follow the CedaT signs to do a loop or continue straight to loop in the opposite direction. In that fashion you will want bear left and the second junction, and if you find yourself crossing the wooden, narrow, elevated footbridge, your nearly back to the main way point near the road.
