Runner Notes

This trail is easy with few rocks. There are a few cow and horse pies to look out for though.

Description

This is a nice, fairly easy loop around the lower part of Sky Meadows State Park on the east side of Winchester Road (Route 17).

The trail takes you through the rolling meadows of a farm. There is a lovely viewing point with a nice bench under a shade tree at the crossroads of several trails including this one (see map). The view from this spot across the valley to the other parts of Sky Meadows is spectacular.

Flora & Fauna

There is an abundance of wild blackberries.
