Description

This mostly gravel trail is still good in the worst of weather as the water is able to drain off quickly. Parking can be found at the road access points. There's are a few add-on trails along the way for those looking to extend their hike. The trail is forested, and you'll enjoy hiking through the pine and hardwood trees that line the trail.

Flora & Fauna

Mixed pine and hardwood forest.
