Runner Notes

Tree roots are exposed due to foot traffic in a few spots, so be sure to watch your footing.

Description

This trail provides a nice, easy loop that is not too heavily trafficked even during peak season. There are multiple sink holes along the trail. If you are running with small children or pets, you might want to keep close tabs on them. The holes are about 20-50' off the main trail, but very visible along the path.

The trail is well marked and easy to follow with blazes marked on trees. There are a few spots where tree roots are exposed along the trail, so be sure to watch your footing. Other than those few items, it is a beautiful trail in a very nice park.
