Runner Notes

Mostly smooth with some tree roots protruding in some spots.

Description

Trail starts and ends in the parking lot. Almost entirely flat with the exception of one hill about halfway through the trail, but the hill is only about a 40 ft elevation gain over a hundred yards or so. Some parts of the trail can be muddy for several days after a rain but alternative routes are available. A bridge crosses over the water in the back of the lake and a smaller bridge crosses over the creek on the bottom side of the dam. Trail markers are not used as the trail is well established.

Flora & Fauna

Squirrels, Birds, Snakes (occasionally), mosquitoes, etc.

Near back corner of lake, with a fisherman on a boat. Made me want to be trying to catch a bass while I was here. Beautiful.
