Great scenery and isolation for a half day hike.

Won't hike this trail again. No shade. Lots of sugar sand. I didn't care for how this trail is marked. At one point you come to a fork with no directional sign. Marked with a combination of blazes and letters sometimes the blazed which are red are on the backside of the post. At letter J you get to hike down a very over grown path. Due to my aversion of rattlesnake venom I decided to turn back at this point.

It wasn't a bad trail. Not much to see though. We took the blue trail to Katie's Landing, and couldn't find where the trail continued. We walked all around the area, but couldn't find the next trailhead. Maybe we aren't great explorers, but we tried. Oh well. Probably won't visit here again.

This Trail was very nice, Went There For Orienteering and got a great workout 8 miles total. Trails are a combination of sand, pavement and brush. Will recommend. Our day was gorgeous!!

Well if you like hiking in sand this ones for you.. Hot hot.. Hardly any tree cover.. Plus you hike near the sewer plant the smell is horrible.. The little park which charges walkers 2 dollars to enter is very nice.. It's across the road from the trail.. River is beautiful.. Nice place to chill.. All in all.. Wouldn't recommend nor will we return to this trail..
