Fun cute little trail near the pond. Beautiful view. I went when it was snowing so if course it was muddy. I’d suggest going across the street to the rhododendron garden even if you have to pay the $5 admission in the spring time. It’s a gorgeous area.

Pleasant walk around marshes. Simple and flat. Nice for catching up with a friend.

Nice walk, lovely water and very small ups and downs. Enjoyed it! Will be back! Was glad I had the AllTrails app, it’s easy to take a wrong turn here. GPS tracking on the trail was EXTREMELY helpful. Good signal so no worries about that folks!!

Great for hiking with toddler. It was mostly flat and easy to walk without a lot of roots in the path.

this place is great it's Urban, also has some trails that are paved, but the best thing about this is the lake and all of the bark dust cover Trails for a nice soft foot strike. The only downside is it's very confusing and you can kind of get out of whack of where you're trying to go and I ended up over inside of a school and got all crazy other than that it's extremely great place to go

This trail is closed for renovation as of 10/10/17

Nice easy walk. Lots to look at even in the winter months (lots of variety of ducks and even saw a beaver). Very serene midweek in October

Too short and no water :( but lots of animals and beautiful foliage!

Nice short easy hike close to home. The only drawback was the people who left their dogs poo bags near the beginning of the trail.

I would have given it 5 stars but the porta potties reeks so bad if you were Within half a mile of them. other then that was perfect on a hot day.

Great for berry picking. My son had a great time here.

nice i like a swamp zone. saw some birds, they seemed to have some kind of club going on in the bushes.

This is a massive construction site at the moment: 7/27/2017. It doesn't look accessible from the road.

This park is beautiful!

Flat, very pretty, hardly anyone there ☺

It's a nice even path. It does have roots and things that might trip you up if you aren't careful. But good for young and old alike. It's more of a walk than I hike, but still nice.

New to walking/hiking and I found finding a BEGIN spot such as a sign was difficult but none the less eventually a small opening among the campus led to a path which took me into Crystal spring/ Reed Lake trail and it was very scenic. There were also many places to break for lunch, rest or birding.

The trail is pretty easy. This time of year you have lots of mud puddles to deal with and part of the trail was in the pond at one end so you cannot really do the loop in the wet spring. April

Much of the trail is flooded now.

Nice easy trail, has lots of water birds and great views of the lake. Could be done with a jogging stroller. Was a little muddy so our dog needed a good bath when we got home. Also according to my phone it was a 5 mile loop not 2.4.

Nice place to stroll, watch birds, people, and enjoy the gardens. Lots of places to sit. My 5 year old loved it. Don't go if you don't like watching people feed ducks. At least it was cracked corn and not bread.
