It’s 0.25 in and 0.25 out. Just short enough to go in your lunch break. It’s pretty. Cons: lots of rocks and roots hidden underneath leaves (I fell on my tush) , and stepped in dog poop.

First to Review

This is a very short simple walk into nature; you won't get a workout here at all, but you will see nature in all it's beauty. The trail is NOT marked, but easy to follow. When you get to the end there is an "End of Trail" sign. Bring the kids.
