This was a great hike for my kids, ages 7 and 3. Not very challenging for me, but it wasn't boring either. There were lots of wildflowers and we even saw wild turkeys!

Pretty little trail. It's easy, but not flat. It can be super muddy when wet, too.

My companions and I greatly enjoyed the woodland scenery of this lovely loop. It has some gentle ups and downs as well as some historic points. The trail is short; we went around the loop twice for a good length morning walk.

Nice and easy! This is a great little loop if you want to get out, but don't have much time or want to take your not so active Mom out on a hike. There are some lovely views, nice bathrooms, and a longer option.
