Description

An easy trail that can be started from a variety of points. Enjoy strolling along under the shade of old growth hardwoods and along swaths of wildflowers as you make your way around a lovely portion of the Hunt Branch Creek. Expect to find others enjoying the area, as it is in the heart of a local neighborhood. It is worth a stop if you find yourself in the area.
