About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This 54-acre nature preserve along the Conodoguinet Creek serves as a natural habitat. It features meadows and wetlands and provides creek access for kayaking or fishing. The 9 ponds are also available for fishing. There is an almost 2-mile outer loop trail or a shorter one-mile inner loop trail, with easily identified trail markers, for walking, hiking, and biking. No dogs are permitted.

This is a great spot for puddle stomping after a rainstorm or doing a nature scavenger hunt.  A crushed stone path is great for strollers and bikes.  The parking lot is large and there is a bench with a wooden bear carving at the trailhead.  Remember bug spray during the warmer months.

About The Guide

Hike it Baby Family Trail Guide is an online resource to help families with children source trails that little legs can hike and parents can feel comfortable with. Hike details are sourced and have been hiked by families who participate in our community. Our contributors do their best to give you all the details they can, but if something is missed, you can reach out to the contributor and offer suggestions for them to add to make it a better trail description for all. This guide was built with a generous 3-year partnership with L.L Bean. Like Hike it Baby, L.L Bean believes that helping get families into nature from birth on is key to healthier, happier communities.
