Runner Notes

Ankle high grass for most of the trail. Your feet will get wet if it has been raining or if morning dew is present.

Description

This trail is mostly covered in ankle high grass... it's not very beaten down.
Campsite 5 is located on the SE end of this trail, which is the best campsite in my opinion. It's next to the fast flowing river with 2 tent sites and a fire ring. The view is great, and the soothing sound of the river would definitely put me to sleep.

The scenery gets better once you get to the first SE bend and the trail moves westbound. Overgrown grass land with the occasional deer can be found here. As the trail goes northbound, it's still overgrown grassland, with small forests to the west.

Flora & Fauna

Mosquitoes at Campsite 4 can be a nightmare if the river has recently flooded and created small stagnant water pools.

Campsite #5. A little distorted, because it's a panorama.

Grass on the trail -- most of Mingo Trail is grassy. Dew will soak your shoes eventually.
