Very quiet and peaceful. Pretty easy walk with a couple good hills to keep it interesting.

Well kept trail near wall lake! It's very quiet with great views! I'll be back again!

My daughter and I enjoyed our hike. There was only a little bit of snow and it wasn't very muddy.

There was a farm next to the trail and we got to see newborn calves and cows. There was also angry and confused geese hanging out on the ice.

This would be a great walk in the spring.

The only downside was the bridge. We brought my 100lbs golden with us and his paws were not a fan of the bridge. The bridge is almost like a chain-link fence (example... obviously not a fence turned on it's side) turned on its side. A smaller dog would probably need to be carried across or in pain crossing the bridge.

We enjoyed the walk and will be back.

This is a wetland area that is deep enough for ducks and geese to make their home. A well maintained trail leads to an observation deck on the West side of the slough. There is also an observation shelter in the water with a bridge leading to it so you can view the waterfowl without them knowing you are there. This is a very quiet trail. No one else was there for the hour or so we were there. Wide open prairie for most of it with great views. @backpackerneil
