Description

This trail is full of beautiful sights, decent hills, and wonderful views! The trail is out and back, but also connects to the Katy Trail and can be turned into a loop if you know where you're going. During the winter, snow collects quite a bit on the trail and can be slick if you don't have traction.

There are a few steep sections that are very easy to handle when dry, but can be challenging when wet. Several downed trees are on the trail.

Muddy Muddy! Should have brought trekking poles. Two tree limbs worked well, and saved some energy on the way back to TH. 3.9mi — 1h 02m
