This is the "Yellow Trail" at Colt Creek State Park. You can either start from one of the two Flatwoods Trail Heads in the middle of the park or drive on the park road a little further south and park. If you start from the middle of the park though it will take you either 3 or about 3.25 miles just to reach the start of the Yellow Trail. The actual Yellow Trail is really about a 5-mile loop, even though the trail map says its 7 miles. The is by far the least traveled part of Colt Creek State Park and I rarely see anyone else out here. It's also typically where I see the most wildlife. It's very well marked, and there are a couple of spots where you can shorten it if you need to. The recording I did covers the entire Yellow Trail and added a little more distance by varying the route on the way back.
