Heads up: The trailhead is located in the parking lot of a church. The descriptor tags for this trail include “dogs on leash” however when we arrived at the trailhead, there was a large sign stating “No Dogs Allowed”.

Downright serene at times. Buggy.

This is a nice shady trail and very peaceful. It had rained a lot recently so it was muddy and some areas were so flooded that we couldn’t complete the loop. Will definitely come back when it’s dryer!

Nice springtime hike. Only saw 2 other people close to the trailhead. Terrain varied, pretty streams and lake. Three kinds spring wildflowers. Will be back.

I am unsure why this trail was given moderate difficulty - its definitely an easier hiking trail. In a sense it is a hidden gem but my no means will you experience solitary - there are many people and families that visit the trail. So if you want to "get away" this isn't your trail. The trail does go through woodlands and prairie and follows a lake for a while. The trail also allows horses but not dogs (although it seems nobody follows this). Overall your average run of the mill trail but worth a visit every now and again.

Very cute, quiet little trail! You get views of the woods, a lake, and prairies. It is good for a quick day hike! :)
