hiking

Love the area, deer, flowers, etc., but needs some improvement. Some parts of the trails were very narrow with possible poisonous plants growing in the path. Other parts were wide and nicely mowed. Attempted the Riverside Trail. It appeared to eventually go through very tall weeds (6ft+). I continued on what I thought was the trail, but eventually lost the path. Could not see where my feet were stepping and the ground was uneven at the same time. Eventually turned around and went up the Deer Trail. Was wearing shorts and ended up with lots of stinging scratches/welts on my legs from what I thought was the Riverside Trail. Hope to return someday and see if I made a wrong turn somewhere, or if it really is that poorly maintained. Wear long pants and long sleeves!
