Attempted to use this trail as a family with my 2 kids and hubby, but it was so overgrown we really couldn't even pass through. We drove by the entrance 2 times before we found it. Probably won't come here again.
If you don't have time for a hike or just want to take a walk I would go here. The trailhead is located just after the turnaround and before the driveway for Harris Farm on Griswoldville Ave. You're practically in peoples backyards most of the time so I would keep your dogs on leash. It's extremely close to home so I will probably visit again. Not worth a drive longer than 10 minutes though.
