Overview

There are lots of trail options and intersections here along all-singletrack paths. Many Boy Scouts have contributed to the development and maintenance of the trails here with bridges and walkways through boggy spots. The trails are blazed and well maintained. Several waterfalls, streams, and a large pond make this otherwise beautifully natural place more beautiful in the changing seasons. The back side is very much a bog so waterproof boots and/or careful placement of your feet is important.

Need to Know

There are (periodically) maintained porta-potties near the pond. There are facilities available for local rental only, so you'll frequently see Scouting events on location for a variety of activities throughout the year. It's a public park so you just say hi and keep running to get to the trails.

Description

You can loop together short or longer trails and do figure-8s to extend your time/mileage.

This place is very popular with dog owners and most let them off leash even though it's clearly marked that this is not allowed. The well trained dogs are never an issue. I'm a dog person and there are lots running around that are not trained.

Flora & Fauna

This is a boggy area with a number of waterfalls, streams, and a large pond. I've never seen wildlife here but there are wildflowers.
