Lovely mix of pine trees and mountain laurel. Took the blue trail beyond the farm animals to the red loop.

This is a pretty easy going VERY well marked trail. The nature center takes good care of it. Mostly it is flat and there are options of a few different paths to take. I took the red and purple trails today and didn't see anyone else on the trails though I noticed one other set of recent boot marks on the purple. If you are looking for a basic, well maintained, easy to utilize trail that doesn't push you much, this is a great spot.
