Overall an easy trail, hardest part was doing the uphill climb after it had rained for the last 3 days. There wasn't much to see aside from the stream that ran alongside the trail for a bit. There are no trail markers throughout this trail, and a couple of little side trails that could be confusing to someone who isn't used to it.
This trail is easy with just a little bit of elevation change. It can be completed easily in an hour, and there is not much for sight seeing. All in all, It is nothing special but, for as close as it is to Louisville, it is worth the drive
This trail was fairly easy. Not much for sight seeing. Expect horseflies and chipmunks.
