First time hiking this trail. Took the green trail. The sign at the trailhead says 5.3 miles. My tracker said 4.9. Fairly flat, a couple of rolling hills. There is a good amount of sand to walk through, sometimes uphill. I started at 1:30pm (Saturday) and was the only one there. Did pass a woman on horseback, though. There are a couple of small ponds along the way, one of which was almost dried up. Overall it was a good hike.

The parking lot is only open on Saturday and Sunday from 8am-4pm. Don't get locked in!!!

Sand in the middle of the woods. Some good little hills. Free. Watch out for crazies riding around on quads.
