Update

The most challenging part of this trail is staying awake during it.

Overview

The park is open from dawn to dusk.
In a word, boorrrring. Nothing to see here. Less a trail, and more a spot for the locals to bring their dogs to relieve themselves.

Need To Know

Your car will be safe since you never lose sight of it during your hike.

Runner Notes

Watch for dog bombs.

Description

I suppose it's an OK place to have a picnic under the shelter, but the trail is nothing to write home about. The route follows a monotonous path that has been mowed in an old cornfield. There's not a thing growing that's over 3 ft. tall. That being said, if you're looking for a short trail to let a four legged friend burn some energy, this might be a good spot.

Not recommended if you're looking for a longer or more scenic route.

History & Background

Used to be a cornfield.
