Nice little community park. Trail loops and intersects so you can take whichever path you choose. Small ponds and streams criss cross back and forth through the park. One large paved pathway and several gravel paths. Dogs welcome. Kids play area with rock wall, hills, ropes, and slides.

Would definitely do again, noce view at the end

Have hiked this trail several times. Not too difficult and very nice views from the top.

This might have been a nice hike if it hadn’t have been for the large gather/daughter group of loud and obnoxious hikers on 3/4/18. They took up the entire trail, causing everyone else to have to move out of their way, were screaming the entire way, blocking trail signs and not letting people through. Every other hiker we passed were also commenting on their disruptive behavior. And when we reached the top, we couldn’t even sit to enjoy the view as they had spread out over most of the rock face at the top, children were running around and screaming and swinging sticks, and the parents were paying no mind to them. We waited for a half hour, to hopefully let them have their time and disperse, as older couples, and even teenagers left because of the noise and annoyance. But they simply stayed and took over the whole area. Pretty awful human beings ruining this probably otherwise lovely area. I would not recommend this hike for this reason.

Love to hike the trails here. They are well-maintained with beautiful scenery. Don’t miss the goats at the Carl Sandburg Farm. They are precious.

We love this trail, but I would not classify it as "easy". It is straight uphill and can be intense at times, but well worth it!

great little afternoon hike

I travel with small kids so my reviews are based on that. Easy hike. Carl Sandburg properties is one of my favorites because: summer garden, goats, on site clean restrooms, several trails to hike, easy parking. Variety of things here that young-old can enjoy. We visit weekly.

Big tip for parents: bring crackers to feed the fish!
