We picked this hike because we were staying in the area and thought it would be good for our 6 and 8 year old. It is a nice easy loop that is mostly flat and shaded, but is also a horse trail. There was poop...More

This is a great little walk for those looking for something mild and interesting. It's an easy walk and it would make a great trail fur a morning jog. Bring water.

A pleasant walk of about 2 hours. 8-10 interpretive signs display nature and history facts. And the wildflowers in June were abundant!
