Trail shared by Richard Washburn

A nice trail with shade in the summer and great wildlife viewing all year round!

Description

There is a sign at the trailhead with the rules of the trail. As this is a popular spot, please respect your fellow trail users!

There are trees to provide shade almost the entire way, so this is a pleasant path in any season. Along the way you'll find benches to sit and enjoy the flora/wildlife. There is a creek along the entire trail, so the relaxing sound of water can be heard most of the way.

Flora & Fauna

You will see lots of wildflowers in the late summer and fall. Deer can be observed in some of the open fields.
