Parked on SW Main st. In Douglas at the end of High st. Nice loop, mainly flat with just a few elevation changes.
Oak forests, rocky trail, old homesteads, nice walk/hike.
Really enjoy snow shoeing it in the winter.

It was nice to say I have been there but I did not think it was anything special.

Fantastic. Trail! Great beach.

Easy hike with kids. Wide paths. We saw spring peepers, a wood frog and a gray tree frog.
