I knew what I was getting into as the trails description was easy, and well maintained. early in the morning I saw only one other person but it's obvious that during operating hours the trail is teaming with elementary age kids and probably the elderly.
completely covered with trees it's difficult to notice the surrounding homes and traffic.
worth coming back. note:use the yellow markers to circumnavigate the trail. my GPS finished at 2.2 miles.

flat paved trail is great for running, rollerblading or biking. It does get some heavy traffic on summer evenings and weekends. The trail goes through some wooded areas and a lot of open farm land, The wind can get pretty intense in the open areas.

Nice wide paved trial. Lightly used, especially weekdays in summer. Nice trial for groups of bikers & families. Parking at both ends of trial as well as several road crossings. Great trial for a workout. Best on low wind days or east-west winds as much of trial runs thru open farm land.
