Okay here’s some details. Our outing was a complete bust but I think during other times of the year it has potential. It’s not taken care of. The trail was overgrown and nothing was marked. The other pictures made it look pretty cool and I tried to follow a previous hikers trail but the grass was overgrown and there was no actual trail to follow through the field. If it was managed even a little better I think it would be a fun little hike with dogs and family. A good picnic type location. Other parts of the trail looked like people come here to smoke and party. Beer cans and broken bottles. So be wary.
