This trail is a short hike in the Taxter Ridge Preserve. It intersects with another Preserve trail midway. Highlights include small wetlands, ruins, gravel path, and a glacial boulder. Of note, the trail is a bit noisy due to a busy nearby highway.

Went to the trail head with our little guys and it was too overgrown for us to hike. Also weren’t sure where to park. Bummer.

A moderate, quick, in-out trail...but the noise level from the highway is less than tranquil!!
