Runner Notes

This trail can get very muddy after a recent rain.

Description

Starting at Sandy Creek Nature Center( Sandy Creek Nature Center Loop ), head east on the trails and there will be a posted sign with a trail map signifying the start of Cook's Trail. This trail then heads under highway 441 and the next 2 miles or so are on a boardwalk through dense woods.

Following Sandy Creek, it winds through the woods on mostly flat ground. This trail is not very technical, although it can get muddy after a heavy rain.

This trail sees almost no traffic and is maintained fairly well throughout the year.

The boardwalk of Cook's Trail as it follows Sandy Creek

The very end (or beginning, depending on where you start) of this trail crosses a power line strip, where the trail really opens up for a good view, especially facing west.
