This trail has something for all, we hiked the complete persimmon trail and then some. The farther out you get the more overgrown and muddy it becomes. However there are some really nice areas with views as well. Many animal tracks are to be found in the mud and sandy areas. The ticks were plentiful, so I recommend anything with permethrin in it to treat your clothing and gear. It took 3 hours with an 8 year old to finish.
