Currently, the trails are all washed out and there’s water covering most of the surface. You can’t get more than an eighth of a mile in any direction.

First time there....trails are all flooded due to recent rain. Will try again another day!

Not my favorite trail in the area, but worth doing once at least.

I absolutely love this trail! The amount of wildlife I've seen here is stunning. It does get extremely buggy in the summer, but it's beautiful fall through spring. Definitely stop here in March (or fall) to see the migrating waterfowl. It truly is an important bird area.

Second time out on this trail. Stuck to the gravel path instead of venturing into paths more overgrown in the summer. Excellent flat path for all types. Saw a family with a stroller, cyclists and dog walkers. Fall leaves were not peak yet but enough colors for a lovely morning walk.

Decent flat trail, lots of offshoots and crossing trails that are marked but sometimes sparsely. Old canal and lock sites were interesting stopping points.

A nicely maintained, very easy to walk nature trail with plenty of bridges for any potential wet spots. We saw chipmunks, a cardinal, and a nuthatch as well as remains of a turtle. The local girlscout troop did a "Fairy Scavenger Hunt" project which is a lot of fun for younger ones in the group.

I found this trail well cared for and whoever built it did a nice job, small bridges, benches, mowed and weed plastic laid and some rocks/mulch along trails. Unfortunately, the bugs!! I will explore more in the late fall. I did the white and yellow trail, skipped red and blue. Bugs usually don’t bother me even if I don’t wear bug spray. However, while standing in the small parking lot I was surprised by the bugs so I covered myself with bug spray which didn’t seem to help

Flat gravel trail down to old canal lock. Hornets are nesting in the bridge which caused us to reconsider crossing to the other side. Buggy but with lots of frogs, mice, squirrels on the trail with little shade. Began the other loop option but grass was overgrown and high, breeding/hunting ground for ticks, turned back quickly.
