The trail is on private property, but is open to public; don't be there breaking the 11th commandment.

Runner Notes

The roots in some areas and uneven surface make this trail less then ideal.

Description

This is an easy run around the private lake at the Mount. The trail is well-marked and kept clear of trees. There are some areas with significant roots to watch out for, but its a fun trail and not too long.

Flora & Fauna

Hardwood timber, water life, and aquatics.
