This is a great trail! Great for people who like to stroll as well as people who just want to enjoy the views without thinking about how exhausted they are. This isn't steep, no switchbacks, and partly shady. I would bring a hat and sunscreen though.

You are surrounded by hills and trees (not pine trees) but there will be mud if it recently rained. Our shoes were caked in it by the end, but only the bottoms and sides. If you're concerned, I'd wear actual boots that cover your ankles, although we didn't have a problem with that.

The trail is slightly confusing since you won't see "Katahan" on any sign. But just follow 347 from the parking lot (the only option there is), and then turn right on 341 when you come to it about 15 min into the hike. 341 loops around and connects again to 347.

This trail can obviously be made longer, and there is a way to connect it to Mint Creek. Enjoy!
