My daughter and I decided to take a hike on a hot Sunday. There is gravel that has recently been laid at the beginning of the trail and it is uncomfortable to walk on to say the least. ( with hiking boots it’d be more comfortable, we had on sneakers)
We were lucky to see lots of butterflies along the way and one even guided us out of the trail.
It’s not very well maintained and a odd place to start. The trailhead started at a apartment complex near the dumpsters.
We didn’t let it deter our hike and enjoyed the semi steep hill down to other trails. We came across deer bones and carried a “web swipes” aka a stick to get through what we called Spider Alley. We loved how the trees naturally grew into and archway above the path so we understand why spiders were so plentiful.
Hope this helps!
