Description

Eight miles of this nine mile loop are currently in good condition. There is a half mile to a mile long section in the northwestern area covered with debris from brush removal. This should be cleared by 6/17. All of the trails within the Trexler Game Preserve are excellent for running, especially for those seeking hill training. Occasional roots and rocks may keep you on your toes, but overall it is a friendly singletrack experience for all ability levels.

Flora & Fauna

Deer. BISON. Ticks. Poison ivy. Snakes?
