“A great trail on the margins of Twin Creek.”— Chris Davis
Family Friendly Lots of variety and the ability to cut the route down to as short as 1.1 miles, making it easy to customize the length of your hike.
If you are very adventurous, make the loop and continue north to connect with up to 26 miles of trails. The trail is mostly wide enough for two and sometimes three, but in places it goes back down to singletrack (especially in the ravines) where it almost becomes a scramble.
Along the way, you'll see multiple trees down with amazing displays of shelf fungus, small fish, and crayfish in the streams and the occasional deer on the margins (several field margins are viewed). Plus with the abundance of conifers (eastern red cedars dot the area) there are plenty of small birds flitting to and fro.
Near the south of the trail, you have the opportunity to see the remains of the mound builders work, the trail bisects those earthworks twice and you have a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with man-made earthworks that have been around for thousands of years.
