VERY SUN EXPOSED, know this before doing it in the heat. An easy trail for all skill levels, dog friendly, and some spots for them to dunk in.

Great scenery and several great spots to wade into the water. I recommend starting with the trail parallel to the highway as the other half is more enjoyable.

This trail was delightful. It's almost all flat amd open, and the trail walks by a creek for most of it. There's a lot of fields and bridges, so sunscreen is a must. Also, walking in the evening makes it much more enjoyable (other than the bugs of course, so bring bug spray). I was very happy.

A couple easy hills and one fourth shade so bring sun screen. Bridges cover the few water crossings that exist during Jun and July but I was told are mostly gone by the end of summer.

Great trail! Especially with all the water this year. Technical and fun. A few too many people. Only tip would be to go earlier in the day. We got there at 9 and by the time we were done /+ hours later we were passing lots of people. Good family trail if you have kids over 10 who are physically active.
