The hardest part of this hike was figuring out where to park/start walking. Most, if not all, of the trailhead markers in the park were unlabeled when I visited last week.

This trail would be great for a family with young kids. I look for a little bit of difficulty to reach wonderful views, and that wasn't something that existed here. The trail is very well maintained (and too busy for my taste). The only thing I will remember about walking this trail was that in a moment when I was away from anyone else for a brief period, a Doe walked out of the woods and slowly approached me. It was a beautiful experience, but I'm a bit wary of any circumstance where a wild animal approaches people. I spooked her off and went on with my day.

Love the little fairy houses. The nature center was very educational.

It's great when you aren't being stared at. I just want to enjoy my hike. Let's not make it weird as if brown ppl don't hike

Definitely not a hiking trail, it's primarily gravel path with sections of concrete in more popular areas. Enjoyable to walk/run/bike along the canal. It's not a forest landscape but does have trees offering shade in sections. Expect to see lots of joggers, some bikers and often dogs. Well maintained and easy for all ages. Can get ice cream in either village afterwards, or in Bushnells Basin in between.

Hard? No. This is a really easy short hike anyone can do. Unless you're talking about the short steep decline from the top rim.

Loved the fairy houses and the nature center.
