Trail covers the swimming area and the early stages of the spring run and is mostly a boardwalk through the jungle that follows the water behind the mill house. The water is a clear blue at the end of the trail where the water is a little deeper. It's a short trail but there are a lot of interesting places to stop along the way.Show more
