Dogs: No Dogs
Some shifting rocks, and loose gravel keep things exciting, but for the most part this route is a very flat, runnable trail. Bathrooms are located at the trailhead and near a turnaround point. There is plenty of parking at either entrance to the trail.
The trailhead is located in the back corner of the parking lot of the Couchvile Lake Trail
, and is easily spotted. The whole trail is shaded and very enjoyable, there are just a few stretches that will shift underfoot. The terrain is primarily wooded, with just a few meadow type areas popping up here and there.
Flora & Fauna
There are lots of deer and squirrels, cedars, and other tall trees to provide some nice cover. In a few sections you can catch a glimpse of Percy Priest Lake.
