HikingGreat!

Very well maintained short loop around some beautiful water and surrounded by terraced Prairie and farm land. South side is forested for some shade, and lots of wildlife. As others have mentioned, there’s an awkward stretch on the highway to compete the loop, including a bridge, but the traffic is very light.

WalkingGreat!

It's a grassy trail, lots of fork paths. Great exercise for yourself and for your dogs!

First to Review

Trail is all grass. A few hills which is nice. Lots of dragonflies and butterflies. Saw a deer as well. Not happy that you have to walk along the highway for part of the trail, but it is a short part.
