I went later in the afternoon when the sun was lower on the horizon and it was very pretty. The trail is very easy to follow and well kept.

If you like hiking through the Pines this is a perfect trail.

To make this hike worthwhile and longer walk the trails outside the loop. One thing I don't like about this trail is having to cross the street into the other trails. Sometimes cars seem to drive by fast and visibility when crossibg isn't the greatest bc of overgrown trees so use caution

Well maintained mulch trail through a beautiful pine forest. There is a dirt parking lot next to the start of the trail. It's a little short, but there are plenty of side trails if you want to make your walk longer. The trail is marked and easy to follow. Part of the trail is closed, but you can go around on the bike path. No dog waste stations or trash cans.

Pretty walk! We usually walk through Townsend Park and some of the Cannon Trail to make it worthwhile. Stop by the Honey Creek Inn for great food and beer!

Great trail. There's a smaller (yellow) loop and the larger (red) loop. The larger probably only being about 1 - 1.5 miles long. Lined with pine trees and pretty wide in most places. It also connects to a paved bike trail that goes a ways in either direction.

Very nice views, I only walked about 4 miles of the trails during some training but very scenic!
