Haven't seen the place in 20 years, still beautiful as ever!

A little bit of everything!

There was quite a bit of liter in and around the parking area. Also some as well a little ways into the trail. This was irritating to see. Also some of the trails felt like I was on a dirt bike track. However after that section it became much nicer and the walk along the fields and brook was good.

Nice easy trail.

would not consider this moderate, but nice outshoots for the lake.

Fun trail with the pups. Moderate uphill climbs, beautiful scenery, and well marked. The was quite a bit of mud and some snow in mid-March, but nothing a good pair of boots can’t handle. Will definitely be going again!

Beautiful spot for a winter walk with the dog. Well maintained well marked trails. Woods, wetlands, variety of woodland plants. Friendly people along the way.

Beautiful views and a nice hike

Nice little beach

Love this trail once you’re off he boardwalk. The Hope trail is my favorite and felt like I kept finding new spots and things to see. Easy trail and enjoyed it all.

I only had one hour and didn’t complete the hike but I’ve already made plans to come back. Beautiful trail by the river.

I completed this hike today March 10, 2018. Started at 6:30 AM. Crisp 32 degrees but clear skies. I have been here before but today was much more challenging. Also more fun! It was a combination of 1 to 3 inches of crunchy snow, some very wet areas, and lots of small branches and trees across the trails because of the recent wet snow. I planned to do the orange trail but quickly decided to cut it shorter and do red trail which is supposed to be 6 miles. My tracker said a little over 5 which was fine. Great morning. Nice winter hiking spot.

Nice range of incline hikes with many intersecting trails so you can wander around and not get lost. Nice view from the hilltop

A little wet and a few trees down but much better than I had anticipated considering the storm.

Very nice woodland trail. A few wet/muddy spots. Well marked trails.

Nice area - don’t be afraid to follow the side trails, especially the one along the river just before the bridge.

Perfect amount of information. Kids ran from sign to sign screaming, "another clue!" I felt like I learned about & could recognize more of the wildlife. Quiet - could clearly hear bird calls.

loved it ..definetly a nice place for a hike & maybe fishing & picnic

Nothing spectacular but pleasant enough.

Very kid friendly. Took 2.5 & 5.5 year olds on red trail. They loved jumping over fallen logs and climbing over one stony stretch!

Walked the short yellow trail and followed the loop around. My boyfriend and I spotted three bufflehead sea ducks, one male and two females, on the water. On the way back to the parking lot an unidentifiable owl flew overhead. Aside from the overgrown bramble this place is a great spot to view a variety of birds.

Peaceful, easy hike great for families.

Trail pretty wet from north of Old Ten Rod to Barber Trail.

definitely have a plan of which trails you want to take, and take a picture of the map. it's marked clearly but a lot of the trails intersect and you can go the wrong way pretty easily. they're nice trails to walk on. some of it can get pretty hilly but for the most part it's an easy hike. there's shorter loops you can take but the full loop will take you 3-4 hours.

Took my 11 year old and baby wore my 9 month old. We did the red trail. Had a great time. Beautiful day. Would definitely rate this as a more moderate trail.

Urban hike in a park. The trail is very well marked. There is no way you’ll get lost. There are sections that are absolutely lovely. Some sections go past houses, and other sections force you onto the road. Then there are the sections where it looks like people go to party. Alcohol containers, take out food containers, broken glass, drug paraphernalia, and condom wrappers everywhere. If those sections were better maintained this would be a gem in a city setting.

Well marked trail. It’s narrow and kind of boring. But good for a quick hike.

Love this place! Highly recommend it. Nice easy trails, with nice views

Beautiful trail!!

Excellent beginner trail in an urban setting. It’s a treasure!
