Great introductory trail. Amazing, outstanding trees.

Pretty little trail without much of a pond... The trail ends up in a widened creek area due especially to the 5-6 inches of rain we got yesterday. Very gentle and easy trail especially good for someone that doesn't hike much and children. I did several trails in the park today and the only people I saw were on this one.

A nice little trail with a lot of signage talking about the road it used to be. Surprising they put that much effort taking the road out and making this tiny trail. A time that gov agencies had more money to burn..... #274

Interesting but not much too see. It was an old logging road that has been decomissioned and turned into a trail. Most of what you see is the restoration of natural slopes and drainage after the road was removed. It's interesting that it is almost as hard to take a road out as it is to put it in. The Hope Creek trail in this park actually runs along part of the old Ah-Pah roadway, but it's quite a ways from this little jaunt.
