Description

To access this trail, park in the lot next to the covered bridge. Fees apply.

Hike southwest below the Nature Center and head into the woods and up. There are lots of trails off this route but it is marked with orange paint on the trees. This trail features quite a mix of terrain and elevation with some rocky sections. There are a few logs and some elevated wood walkways over the marsh.

Watch for horses, as this trail comes close to the thoroughbred training area. Look for the great views over the river at various points along the way.
