“This route is an easy and quick run, with views of a small, wooded wetland as well as the pond.”
— Keith Barnhardt

Park is only open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Hours vary by season.
Watch for rocks and roots.
Start at the trailhead and head north through a stand of pines. This section of trail winds around a small wetland area, and continues over a footbridge up the ridge above the pond. There are some roots and rocks but overall this is an easy trail.
The trail finishes on a mowed path in a meadow. At that point, you can continue northwest to Alice's Loop Trail
, run around the pond to continue on to South Mary's Trail
, or return to the farmstead and parking area.
Flora & Fauna
Salamanders and frogs can be found in the wetland. Lots of turtles live around the pond. Many visitors have seen deer, turkeys, and ducks on this trail as well.
