Description

The trail in this area consists of an animal trail that people have adopted in order to get off the pavement. The trail is fun, but not maintained in any way. Expect this one to be overgrown in the summertime.

Flora & Fauna

Deer, raccoon, opossum, rabbits, coyote all run in here. We found hawk feathers and rabbit fur along the trail.

It's a cold day for a hike, but at least we won't get ticks!
