An easy trail for walking; no major hills. Nice scenery and clearly marked trail. Long enough that you can still make it worthwhile to go.

Nice trail that features lots of plants and wildlife, views of the reservoir, a creek, and a nineteenth century cemetery. There are several routes to choose from, so you can make it a long or short hike. Bicycles and dogs are allowed.
