This is a great location to hike or run. It is a double wide trail that is only a short drive from the city and bikes are not allowed. This is a nice moderate dirt trail through Browns Woods. It has primitive benches to rest along the trail, a cellular phone audio tour, and port-a-pottys at the parking lot.

A great trail that allows you to walk your dog in a timber setting without the bicycle congestion.

Trails are great even after a rain it isn't really muddy. Just bring bug spray if you don't want to breathe mosquitoes. Otherwise it's awesome
