Description

The Cowskin Creek winds all around in this park and this loop takes you around one of those areas. This is mostly a deer trail that people hike...that's what many of the trails off the paved path consist of. You can see how the latest rains have washed out much of the old bank and how trees fall into the creek to later be washed downstream.

Flora & Fauna

There's lots of critters around this area—keep your eyes open for deer, raccoons, and birds of many types!
