Need to Know

There's a fee if you'd like to do a tour of the mansion. Otherwise, it's free.

Runner Notes

Short but good, even, cinder trail.

Description

This isn't a run as much as a stroll through the grounds of an 200 year old plantation. Much of the grounds feature open lawns with bucolic vistas. Along the trail, there are lots of educational signs for the different flora and there are lots of mature trees.
