“An easy run on crushed gravel and sections of connecting road.”— Dave Arrich
A collection of roads and boat-ramps allows runners to further explore the landscape and add some mileage. The entire area is well maintained with plenty of clean restroom facilities, water taps, picnic tables, shelters and BBQ pits. There's also lots of wildlife to observe and plenty of photo ops. At times, the map layer may make it appear that sections of the trail travel through the water, obviously the water level was higher when the photo was taken and is at an average level at the time of this recording.
There are plenty of places to eat in Valley Springs that includes a large grocery store.
