After walking on a closed road for almost 4 miles the trail is covered with high grass. Tried to keep going but was too worried about stepping on a snake that would be impossible to see. The rains have done wonders but the trail is just way too covered right now. It's a nice walk though and would love to do it again when I can see where I'm stepping

Trail follows a paved road for miles. Lots of deer. Very little shade, so bring lots of water if it is a hot day. You can descend into the creek after about 6 miles into the hike. Lake has receded quite a bit, and the creek is shallow but has some water. Very few people on the trail and there is plenty of parking. Day pass is $10 and there are some picnic areas at the front.
