Beautiful trail that the dogs and I enjoyed. Wide path in the beginning that turned into a winding single track with lots of shade. Chose to do a hike out and back this time instead of a loop so we could see some of the Creek Sink Trail. Would love to go back on a day I don’t have other obligations so I can take my time and explore more.

Great, quick hike on a very pretty trail. There’s a stream and a bridge. It doesn’t take long to lose the road noise.

This is a decent trail. We did it before taking on the longer ones across the street.

Beautiful little trail! The forest is lovely, especially in the spring. The only negative is the noise from the highway, but it’s not that loud.
