“A short but beautiful trail surrounded by tall pine trees.”

The trail doesn't close during hunting season but it never hurts to wear bright orange or other visible colors when running in Conservation Areas during deer/turkey season.
The pine needles keep the trail pretty dry but after a good heavy rain it can get a bit muddy in spots.
From the trail entrance on the right of the road, this pine needle covered path starts very wide and open. An off-trail path on your right leads to a nice little pond that is usually full of frog activity and buzzing insects. Once you hit the back of the loop there is an off-trail path that you can take if you're feeling adventuresome. Otherwise as you continue you on the short Pine Trail loop, it becomes a bit narrower or overgrown in some spots depending on the time of year. It's still very easy to navigate though.
Flora & Fauna
The trail is named after the abundance of pine trees and throughout the spring and summer you'll find a small variety of wildflowers. There's the potential to catch deer and lots of other critters there or at least find their tracks and scat!
