Description

Though the journey to the end of this trail might not seem tiring, you'll find that the trip can be strenuous. You'll begin on flat terrain that weaves through the woods just a short way away from the road. After nearly two miles of entirely pleasant running, you'll come to a steep incline for the last half mile of the trail. You'll have left the road at this point, and the peaceful journey more than makes up for the terrain.

At the end of the trail there is an awesome deck, that is great for a picnic and for taking in a beautiful view. In the fall you can see the beautiful colors of the leaves as they change.

Once you've enjoyed your time observing or picnicking, head back the way you came to return to your vehicle.

Flora & Fauna
