A moderate trail. Not sure why it's listed as easy. One of my favorites! This is pretty much my backyard and go-to park. I've worked for LPSP for a few years, and they only get better with time! Well manicured, clearly marked, great contours, bridges & overpasses, gorgeous scenery.. for a solid 6 miles. This trail hugs the pond so look forward to encountering a couple of muddy patches. My pups can't get enough! Never gets old.
