The only thing that was not closed for restoration was the WWII memorial but it was very nice. Trails are well marked, though we did get turned around a few times. The terrain gets to be very rocky with lots of tree roots which can start to get annoying but otherwise, it’s decent.

Short, open, flat and wide trail. Good quick walk with dogs/kids.

short and sweet. needs more parking.

Great trail, as a novice I found it more moderate than easy. There were some pretty steep inclines and some narrow paths. I missed the turn for the yellow trail so ended up just doing the red loop, that was fine because it was super humid and the bugs were having a field day. I’ll come back to do the whole loop soon.

By far the most poorly organized trail out there. The map at the beginning did not coordinate well with the actual trail/markings.

The trail was a little difficult for me, so I’d describe it as moderate as opposed to easy. Loved the cute little white bench we encountered along the way.

The WWII Memorial trail was closed for environmental restoration as of July 26 2018

Really nice just bring bug spray !!!!

Beautiful area to walk/hike! Fairly easy with a few steep and narrow areas to hike through. The only thing that would make it better was if it was longer but otherwise beautiful area; was great for both our small and medium dogs.

Great, challenging run through the woods.

This is a nice set of trails. Unlike many previous reviews, I did not have a difficult time navigating the blazes. They are inconsistently spaced, but clear. The sights involve high voltage power lines, and some of the trails are very gravelly paths that follow the power lines. Not my favorite. The wooded areas are lovely, but you will need bug spray! Even with my bug spray on, I had a constant swarm around my head and left with several bites.

Excellent trail and beautiful views , the green trail has some advanced hiking points.

My Fiancé and I gave this trail a go today and we really enjoyed it! The water views were great and it was a great walk through the wild life! Our only complaint is that finding markers on the way back were more difficult and confusing. They did leave maps however, which helped us greatly! We would definitely do this hike again!

Completed with 5 and 8 year olds. Enjoyable hike.

Nice trail and some really cool huge rocks. Got lost though :(. Also it has some hills which is a good workout when running. The hills r very small.

Beautiful trails! Had a great hike! Definitely bring bug spray but all around good trail. I might consider it a moderately ranked hike.

2nd visit was just as good. We
tried yellow and blue trails today and absolutely loved every second.
Once again, nobody there on a Monday afternoon. Clean, Easily marked trails. pathways get tight in spots but it's so easy to follow

Extremely easy and great for taking the dog swimming. Super flat, well maintained, could even bring a jogging type stroller. Mostly in the shade, cute little spot to have a picnic. We are still acclimating baby to his carrier pack, so this was just enough distance for us. Watched some construction on a giant hideous house across the water fall. We saw a lot of dogs, so if your dog isn’t chill keep it leashed plz. We’ll be coming back on hot days for dog dips for sure.

Decent hike but nothing really special. The trails aren’t the best of marked. I could see it being easy for someone without experience or just out for a leisurely walk could get off course. Nice hike for a warm up for the summer season.

Very nice hike, gorgeous views, nobody here on a Monday morning. All the trails are marked very well. Loved the pinic table at the top of the red trail. very good exercise for a short trail. we saw butterflies and a lot of birds. bring bug spray for sure.

kids enjoyed it alot

A good workout with a relaxing environment.

We took the yellow trail and although I would do it again, a warning to those who haven't done it before. The path gets steep and narrow. Had my 4 and 8 year old with me, and although they maneuvered just fine, it was slow going a little bit. Also nothing to see but a beautiful brook at the entrance, trees and a whole lot of mud.

New favorite! Will be back for sure, took the dog for a quick dip in the pond.

Made my way to WW2 site. Powerline area has some muddy areas but u can jump it with caution. Hard to get lost really as t\rails are marked well. Warmer weather now so watch the bugs. Some steep grades so go at ur own pace.

Great place for a nice hike in the woods! The trails are relatively well marked but I did get a little lost around the power lines.

Very nice trail with decent variety and a beautiful brook and small bridge, my wife and 4 year old enjoyed it very much. Easy to follow markings, took us about an hour at an easy pace.

Very pretty trail, easy to follow. Part of the blue trail is closed.
