This trail was not too long or strenuous at all. We went around 7 o clock PM and saw 2 other people. So it was very peaceful and quite. Overall the trails were nice and so were the landmarks. It was a quick stop.

The woods were a pleasant walk but all the structures were locked up. A visit during staffed hours is the best time to go.
