This is a well maintained loop trail with some slight elevation changes. This is a historic area. The brook side trail is shady, and complete the loop 3 times to get a healthy parks t-shirt Great shady woodland trail with some elevation changes. Brook side most of the trail and very nice park facility at the ranger station with bathrooms.

A pleasant two mile loop through the woods that follows a brook for about half its length. There are very nice facilities, as it is part of the Booker T. Washington National Monument. Be sure to spend some time exploring the historic cabins and buildings of his birthplace.
