I love this trail. It is an easy stroll through the woods. Perfect for an easy day.
Beautiful place to go for a dog walk, it has lots of little trails and the Hamilton house is stunning. My only concern is the trails are not really signed as well as maybe they could be. I was a little confused at first if I was still in the park or on private property, but I just kept walking and found Hamilton house and it was a fun surprise! I would definitely recommend this place to go for a nice walk with kids or your dog, and it’s a fun place to bring a picnic to because there are a lot of picnic benches and I believe there are a few outdoor grills.
