 Likely In-Season!
This hike would be a good hike for people with families or anyone that wants to learn more about the area. I did the 0.25-mile loop, which is paved. However, there is an option to extend your hike on a longer loop that is not paved and adds on one and a half miles that are said to be gentle.

On the 0.25 mile portion, you will see plenty of signs describing nature in the area. They help you watch and listen for wildlife you may not see otherwise. It is an excellent introductory to wildlife viewing. There is also some history mixed in with a sign dedicated to Kendrick's Peak, which is visible on the trail. This trail is a good stretch for the legs and a pleasant educational experience in the forest. Very good for anyone who would like to see the forest and wildlife but may have health issues or recovering from injuries.
