This is a very nice 1.25 mile forested nature walk. The entire loop is raised boardwalk. The whole boardwalk was recently replaced and it is in excellent condition.This would be a great path for anyone with mobility issues. It is flat, even, and convenient for wheelchairs, walkers, strollers, etc. It is nice to have a forested trail to walk without the issue of mud, wet ground, tree roots, or ticks. No pets are allowed and I think mosquito repellant would be helpful in deep summer near evening.

The boardwalk trail and park are pretty nice. It's easy, peaceful and enjoyable. I took my 70 year old Mom along and she made it around the trail easily and we enjoyed the plants and animals.

Boardwalk to hike through pretty much untouched woodland. Peaceful time. Only downside was die to the unstability of some larger trees due to borers at least half of the paths were closed.

From a young age I would walk this trail with my family and discover wildlife as well as get some exercise. We usually could find a snake, butterflies, turtles, frogs, squirrels, chipmunks, birds, deer, or some other kind of animal. In college years/there after, I would jog this trail for exercise. The trees provide excellent shade coverage making it cooler to get a run in. I believe the trail is a little over a mile long. The fact that it's a wooded trail slightly off of the ground helps from getting your feet muddy/wet. It is in the middle of the country surrounded by fields and very few houses/farms. Sometimes you will even see Amish/Mennonites there. Dogs are not permitted, even on leashes. Currently, part of the trail is shut down because some of the ash trees are infected with the Emerald Ash Borer. The area that is dangerous is cut off so nobody will enter the dead trees with falling limbs. You can currently enjoy part of the woods, but until they fix the problem part of the trail will be cut off. Definitely a place to visit if you love nature, wildlife, and hiking.
