Need to Know
The park is free. There are RV spaces if you can get a reservation. There is a playground close by also a disc golf area. Bathrooms are close by as well.
The trail starts off flat then moves into a wooded area with ups and down terrain. It is a winding pathway through wooded area then to a gravel pathway for a short bit then back into the woods we go! Fun signs have been put up such as big foot sighting—or maybe they are warnings. This trail is also shared as a biking trail but it is one-way so there should be no problem. While you're hiking through the woods watch out for lions and tiger and bears, oh my! but the lions, tigers, and bears you'll probably find here are Cub Scouts since it is a short trail that would be a great hike for Scouts to use.
Flora & Fauna
Many animals can be seen such as deer, squirrels, birds and fish. Plant different kinds of vines and trees.
