Scenic peaceful 4.2 mile walk. Southern section prettier than the northern. We started north end and had trouble finding access as we saw no signs. Directions on here took us couple hundred yards too far north into a residential neighborhood. Park at the VFW as you can access trail from either end of parking lot via athletic field. All paved and flat.

Pretty trail parking sucks on a nice day

We walked this is no time with the kids who really enjoyed themselves everything was nice and had beautiful spots for pics. I enjoyed the history and the pamphlets provided. We saw four deers and four people walking at different times on the trail. We will do this one again.

Nice easy to moderate loop. Muddy, and all trails have not been completed but easy to find your way around. Beautifully redone since it reopened. Floating bridge is nice. Land bridge that used to be there doesn't exist anymore.

Well maintained paths. Great for an hour or so walk on fairly easy trails.

Drove 20 minutes to get here only to find dogs were not allowed. What a bummer!
