Plenty of parking and trails are clearly marked with little round cement markers in the ground so that you know how far you have gone and which way you are going. At the beginning of the walk there is a public drinking water fountain. This Trail is near a river, the entire trail is 4 miles, and has seating along the trail. As sunset was approaching, I viewed several deer across the river, enjoying their evening grazing.There were only a few people this evening, mostly jogging. The path is clear and free of limbs, rocks and leaves. this was a nice calm easy walk not many people we're on this trail. There is a phone number posted at the beginning of the walk to call Security, if something should happen an emergency, etc. I went to marker 2 and plan to return regularly and work up to walking the entire four miles. it took me about and half an hour to walk the two miles at a leisurely pace, round trip. I was impressed and enjoyed this location and Trail and would recommend it 2 others.

If you want a vigorous, motivating, and beautiful trail to walk, run, or bike? The Nolan Trail is the one to choose. It sets on a beautiful green golf course, and surrounded by beautiful trees. It’s a very relaxing place for you and your significant other to take a leisurely walk or take your dog on a vigorous walk.

What a treasure this 5 mile walk is - through woods, past inlets and then past the river. It's beautifully maintained and always just enough people to feel safe

This is a great trail for running, walking, and taking your favorite leashed dog with you. The path is well marked and shaded for those hot summer days.

The trail is pretty well maintained. It does get busy during the weekends. Don't take pets for a few days after it rains because the trail get pretty muddy and it takes a while for it to dry out. Really wish they would come up with a plan to raise money to pave this trail with asphalt as I would be the first person to make a donation. Park is pretty and very natural, very enjoyable.
