Super easy trail, its not an out and back though there are several different loops you can take varying in length. The hike is definitely a quicky, one that you can do if you just want to get out for a few minutes.

The pin drop on the map is not accurate. Park across the streets from the baseball fields at 600 N Thorpe Rd. Super easy hike should be ok for just about anyone.
