Open dawn to dusk. Pets on a leash. No fires, bikes, horses, motorized vehicles, hunting, camping or fishing. Open year round.
Family Friendly: Relatively flat. Interesting views along the water. Waterfall. Distance isn't too long.
This trail is shaped a bit like a lollipop, which means that a short way down the trail from the parking area is a fork. We went to the right to start our way around the loop.
The first part of this trail goes through the woods and is more difficult than the other 3/4 of the trip. There are pretty views and it's only a moderate trail, not too strenuous, to the first waterfall (approx. 1/4 mile in). There are twp potential creek crossings depending on water level. The creek isn't too wide and we were able to cross in winter without getting wet (the second crossing had more water than the first).
After about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile you'll be out of the woods and on to the wide and mostly flat grass path through a fairly young pine grove. There is a short boardwalk through a small wetlands area around mile 1. To shorten the outing, you could cut across one of the connector paths to make a shorter loop. The paths and trail are well maintained (at least they were clear in the winter) and easy to follow. I highly recommend not missing the first part of the trail if you are at all interested in the views!
