A nice place to take a walk in the woods. Good quality and clearly marked trails. Be warned: people don't pick up after their dogs, so watch where you step.

We stopped for a few mile hike on a Friday morning. There were a few people we saw on the hike. There are a few trails through woods, grasslands, and a pond area.
