Description

Beginning of the trail has been renovated. Nice gravel path. Not sure how far they'll go with this, but right now it goes about 1/2 mile. Trail obviously has horse traffic, but the mud 2 days after rain was navigatable. Mud is only bad in short areas. Trail is very clearly blazed. Impossible to get lost. This trail begins growing poison ivy around early april. I expect it will be fully covered in summer. 2 caves found along trail (entry prohibited) around halfway between campsite and southern trailhead. Awesome late fall - early spring trail on foot.

Flora & Fauna

Deer, Turkey, many wildflowers, squirrel

This cave entrance is almost easy to miss from the surface. However, as much as you'd like to go in, visitors are not allowed inside.
