Description

The Hedgeapple Trail is a pedestrian-only trail that links from the northeast corner of the Group 63 Interim Trail to the Twin Oaks Interim Trail near the Hoff Road Trailhead.

Beginning from the south, the trail follows a tree-lined corridor nestled between grassy fields. Just before it reaches W. Hoff Road, the trail turns to the right and parallels traffic until it ends into the Twin Oaks Interim Trail.

While the tree-lined section of this trail is pleasant, and there are plenty of views of the prairie, its proximity to a public road makes it more of a connector than a destination.
