My lazy three year old and active five year old enjoyed it. Nice gravel path, which makes it ideal for soggier days. And very clean bathrooms!

Quiet little hike. Great natural play area for kids.

They have a terrific kids area that entertains my kids for hours. Beautiful in the spring. The woods trail has lots of poison ivy, though. I’d agree with a previous review about the photographers too. I think the park should curb the photogs some.

I don’t count this an easy trail as a runner because one mile of the 3.8 mile paved course is quite hilly. I’m talking “check your brakes” kind of hills. Biking is fun, but running those hills challenges you if your fitness level isn’t good.

The path is paved and well-maintained. Traffic in the path is never busy, which is nice. I almost always get a glimpse of either deer or wild turkeys. In the winter, those hills are great for sledding and that’s just about the only time I’ve seen the trail crowded.

Walked the lake and spring creek trails. Nice scenery. Good for a 45-60 min nature walk. The spring creek trail is pet friendly.

It should be marked as Easy, not Moderate, but still a great trail.

Lots of trail runners and dog walkers. Elevated birding blind and pond to see birds.

Lovely, lightly used trail. But I'd classify this trail as "easy"; graveled, flat path with little elevation gain/loss.
