Runner Notes

A few easy inclines. Loose gravel in some spots especially after heavy rains. There is a bathroom about halfway around!

Description

Definitely stop at the visitors center before beginning. They have information about the animals, plants and birds in the area. There is a 1-mile loop that is heavily shaded if you're wanting a shorter run.

Flora & Fauna

Rabbit, possum, ground squirrels, field mice and various birds to be seen. Wildflowers are abundant spring through summer especially after rainfall.
