Family fun but bring water to drink! Have sturdy boots to protect your ankles. Sun screen and bug repellant is also a good idea.

Several paths, some shared with bicycles. Heavily wooded with varying terrain, from relatively steep to flat. Lots of tree roots and eroded areas, so watch where you walk. A great area to hike on windy or especially sunny days because the trees will moderate both.

I was blessed enough to have grown up in a neighborhood that actually backs up to the Sope Creek Trail. But even if I didn't live so close, I would have made a pretty decent drive just to come hike these trails. You are never...More
