Runner Notes

Great for running - wide and stable, though a few spots have deep sand that will give you a workout.

Description

Easy trail with small elevation changes. Very sandy in some areas. Trail is multiuse, so you'll encounter hikers, runners, bikers, and people on horseback. There are benches every so often to provide a place to stop. There are several other trails throughout the park so you can tailor the length of your journey. The trail is well marked and there is a map and information at the trailhead.
